Wilderness Horseback Riding

History of the
Centennial Trail 

Also known as the Skagit River Trail, it was built in 1858 to provide access from the U.S. to Hudson's Bay Co. brigade trails in the B.C. interior, and the gold fields of the Fraser Canyon. Captain Walter, a U.S. engineer, charged with it's construction, dragged it across three 2000-metre-high mountains. We will travel the Canadian side as far as the American border,along the scenic Skagit River.
