BCHBC Chapter Profile: Skeena Stikine

Spring Creek Winter

Established in December 2014, the Skeena Stikine chapter (near Terrace) is the newest addition to the Back Coutnry Horsemen of BC group.  It was established after Richard Rennison picked up the phone and made the call, and with the help and encouragement of the NW Chapter, the 20th Chapter of BCHBC came to be and the local response from the Equine Community has been and continues to be overwhelmingly supportive.

 Our chapter domain covers from the far North, Deese Lake area, South to Kitwanga, West thru to Terrace and Prince Rupert, South to Kitimat and North again to The Nass Valley and area.

With this large Northern BC area, we have SO many trails and areas to ride from. Some of the favorite and spectacular places to ride are:

  • Spring Creek/Deep Creek Trail. This is a beautiful forest ride, old logging roads combined with trails and small lakes, water crossings, wildlife encounters and few good elevations to climb with many loops to ride depending on your time and skill level.
  • The Williams Creek is another old logging road that has some great views of the area.
  • Copper Mountain: A day ride which has a stunning view of the Skeena valley & Terrace. It’s quite a work out for the horses.
  • Trapline Mountain Trail, Shames Mountain, Sterling Mountain all offer a day ride / overnighter with amazing mountain views and beautiful alpines to explore.
  • The Copperside Trails also offer another great but less intensive ride with beautiful views, and access to the Skeena River beaches for those who like shorter rides, but still like to practice their mountain trail skills.
  • The Kitimat Trails near the Snowflake Grounds offer many trail options whether you want to ride for a few hours or more. Offering tons of potential in this area for many more trails /overnighters.  Beautiful grounds with stalls and camping available. We are planning to have a Poker ride /campout here this riding season.
  • The Telkwa Pass is a historical trail that links Terrace and Smithers, we hope to work on this Trail with the NW Chapter and possibly meet in the middle this coming year.
  • The Seven Sisters /Oliver Creek Trail, Maroon Mountain, are other trails our chapter hopes to see improvements happen on.

We have a fun-filled year of rides, various clinics, fundraising (poker rides) and trail building.
