Points of Interest  

The Likely Bridge is the third one to span the Quesnel River at this site. The remains of the Quesnelle Dam are still visible downriver from the Likely bridge . The dam was completed in 1898 in order to mine the river bottom. The stop sign in the river was erected as a hoax in the 1970’s and today aids in measuring the water levels. See the kiosk on  GOAT ISLAND near the bridge. The first bridge entered Goat Island where there was a store and post office, and a number of cabins before heading to Likely.

Quesnel Forks Ghost Town

Take the self guided tour of this historic ghost town! Tour information is on signs placed beside the buildings. Quesnel Forks is located 13 km from         Keithley history-sliderCreek Road. Turn at the Community Hall and follow Rosette Lake Rd as it turns into gravel road.
The ghost town of Ouesnel Forks was founded in 1859 and predates Barkerville. At one time it had one of the largest populations in mainland BC with 1,000 – 3,000 transient residents at the height of the gold rush. It was major supply centre for the miners as they headed further along the gold trail  and is actually a Chinese ghost town. Feel the ghosts of the past as you stroll among the restored buildings, the cottonwood trees and the old cemetery. There are Low Mobility Trails along the Cariboo River and through the heritage village as well as wheelchair accessible outhouses.

Quesnel River Hatchery

Plan a visit to Likely in late August and watch thousands of salmon migrate up the Quesnel River to their spawning grounds in the Horsefly and Mitchell Rivers. The Quesnel River Hatchery produces over 2 million Chinook salmon every year, view adult salmon from August 1st until late September and between November and April the fry can be observed during different stages of development. The hatchery is open seven days a week, from 8am to 4pm.
