Fort Halkett, British Columbia City Profile

Population: Abandoned Population Place
Elevation: 474m

There is not a whole lot of info on this area.  I added it because of the Fort Halkett Provincial Park.  Unfortunately at this time the park is closed because of a huge wildfire they had come through the entire area.  Its located where the Smith River and Liard River come together.  Its near km 820 on the Alaska Highway.  The biggest attraction at this place is the Smith River Falls.  This is a 10 story 30ft wide waterfall which plunges into a deep pool.  It makes a crazy loud thunderous sound when it hits the bottom too.   You can easily reach these falls by car and you can also see the original site of Fort Halkett (originally a Hudson Bay Trading Company outpost).
