Only a 10 minute drive from Smithers, the falls are a good detour if you have time in the day. There is also a campsite at the parking area with picnic tables if you wish to have a meal there as well.

About 20km west of Smithers is a small first nations community called Moricetown. There is a canyon there on the side of the highway that many members of the community will still fish for salmon using traditional methods and not so traditional. It is amazing to watch if you are there when they are fishing. Salmon are there usually during the beginning of summer

The atmosphere is pleasant and food wonderful. It has a cozy look to it on the inside. The menu has a good mixture of big city dishes and small town pub food.
Favorite Dish: Not much of an eater, but I like to eat the Caesar salad there.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Always bring a rain jacket to Smithers. The weather changes quite frequently and on my most recent trip (early July) it rained the entire time.
Bring ski jackets and boots if you come before May, in Northern BC it tends to snow until quite late in the year.
Long pants- bring more pairs than you think you would need. It gets pretty muddy if you're out hiking or riding horses.
Bring your own because clothing, especially high performance technical gear, can be very pricey here.

Bear glacier is located about 4 hours from Smithers located between Meziadin Junction and Stewart. Turn off hiway 16 at Kitwanga and drive to Meziadin Junction. There you turn to drive towards Stewart. The glacier will be located just off the hiway and there is plenty of room to pull over and snap some pics. It has shrunk over the years, but is still an impressive sight.
