  • Site Description: ATTENTION: This recreation site is within the proven title lands of the Tsilhqot'in and Xeni Gwet'in First Nation. Visitors are reminded to check www.xenigwetin.net for updates on access to Title Lands. The striking contrast of two distinctly coloured rivers merging into one is what has attracted visitors to this recreation site for many years. At the confluence of the Chilko and Taseko Rivers, visitors will be treated to the spectacular contrast of the milky, glacial till-laden Taseko River mixing with the clear blue waters of the Chilko River. The Tsilhqot'in name for this area is "?Elhixidlin", loosely meaning "where the rivers meet" (source: Tsilhqotin National Government). It is believed that the terms Chilko and Taseko are anglicized from "Tsilhqox" and "Dasiqox" , the Tsilhqot'in names for these two rivers. The Chilko-Taseko Junction recreation site is commonly used as a point for whitewater rafters and kayakers to put in or take out as they raft the mighty Chilko River.

  • Driving Directions: From Alexis Creek, travel 19 km west on Hwy 20 and turn left onto the Chilko-Newton Road. Travel 1.3 km and turn left.
