Overland route to Gold River and return via the Gold River/Woss road

Guided Tours        Overland to Gold River        Alice loop trip          San Josef Bay

This tour will be open from Saturday, May 18, 2019 to September 29, 2019  

Join myself and my co pilot and take a drive on the overland route that will take us, via a mountain logging road to Gold River. You will begin your trip in Sayward and travel along the White River for the first part of the trip. Then you will go up and over  the islands spine, where mountain vistas will greet you around every curve of the road. As you go along your way, you will always have the chance to view black bears, cougars, roosevelt elk, black tail deer, along with a variety of birds and other small animals. After crossing the spine, you will go past twaddle lake and then drive along the gold river.

You will eventually reach the town of Gold River where we will stop for treats and coffee before heading down to the harbor, the road takes you past the tsuxwin falls right where they drop under the road and over the cliffs to the gold river. The harbor is a beautiful place where you can on occasion see large marine wildlife. Otters routinely feed here and as you look out you could possible see killer whales and humpback whales, seals and sea lions are another animal you just might see.

We will head back past the village of Gold River but this time we will take the Gold River to Woss road traveling past muchalat lake, veron lake, klaklakama lakes before reaching the highway that will take us back to Sayward.

The trip will leave at 8 am and based on how often we stop, it could very well be dark before we arrive back in Sayward so come prepared with food and drink, a change of cloths and good hiking boots. If it looks like rain, a set of rain gear would be handy.

We can accommodate groups up to 5 and there is just one rate, $500.00 a day per group, a $100.00 non-refundable deposit required at time of booking, the remaining $400.00 must be paid on or before the morning of booking.  We only accept cash or e-transfer. Thank you.

    Looking for advice? is it possible to drive the backroads from Saward to Gold River?
    Ive never been on the White River main. Will it connect to Muchalat Lake area?

    1. You would not be able to cross over this time of year, there is always heavy snow up there. There are quite a few turns you have to make from one road to another and it can be tricky if you have not gone that way before. I would wait for may before giving it a try. I have been turned back from snow even in may though.
