Freedom Road - Before the Road
Before the road was built the only way to reach Anahim Lake and beyond was by horse or on foot.
Prior to 1930, Anahim Lake had to have supplies packed in from Bella Coola.
Orders were placed two weeks prior to the date set for the pack trip from Bella Coola and it would take three days and nights to reach Anahim Lake.
There were usually six pack trips from each year from Summer to Fall.
