Chilcotion Plateau Planning

Still in the planning stages for my annual September ride.

I see that access to Chilko Lake is still null. I sent a note to the 1st nations. However, I was wondering if anyone has been there this year or has gotten permission yet.

http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/tsilos/

I am fuzzy on the process and it looks like there is no direct means to ask for permission.

I guess last year was may have been my last ride through that area.

the natives have been known to shoot their rifles at you while.riding in the Penticton area, if you venture on to their land.
i would imagine getting the same treatment up there.

I just sold some property in the Nemiah Valley area and had some (legal) dealings with them.

They are very disorganized. I would suggest dropping by the Xeni Gwet'in (pronounced "honey gweteen") band office and VERY respectfully offer to make a donation to them and/or their legal defense fund, and possibly also about hiring a local band member to provide guiding and/or route advice to help you avoid any environmentally or culturally sensitive areas.

Be very careful even if you get permission. Just because their elected governing body may give you the right to use their land, it does not mean that the rest of their people will abide by that. One faction just recently tried claiming some unused school properties some of which were 100's of kilometers away from their traditional territory.
This is also in an area that arguably has the highest rate of theft of recreational vehicles in North America, don't let your bike or your gear out of your sight. Resident hunters who hunt in the Chilcotin region are now going in groups large enough so that they can leave someone at camp to guard their gear at all time. I have even heard of vehicles and atvs being stolen right out of campsites while their owners slept in their campers/trailers only feet away.
Things are really getting out of hand in that area of BC and I fear that there will be bloodshed soon. There has been talk of stuff on some websites that is truly scary and morally reprehensible and it's not the First Nations that are doing the talking/posturing on the web.

On a brighter note, there is much more to BC than the Chilcotin. Check out the area west of Prince George towards Smithers and the Bulkley Valley or up to Ft. St. James and up to Germansen's Landing.

Going up that way in July.... Agree, beautiful area. Still planning to ride the Chilcotin in fall.


Still wanting to hear from any one who has gotten permission and the process they used. So far, I have not gotten a reply.
