Northeast of Prince George near Fort St John, the Christina Falls area has many miles of open to ATV riding. The main trail is about 35km long from the campground at Crying Girl Prairie to the Christina Falls on a combination of old logging roads and trails. There are several side routes that lead to Whiteman Falls and Fossil Falls.
To reach the trailhead, drive from Fort St John up the Alaska Highway to Mile 95 Road (also known as Upper Halfway Road). Turn left and follow the gravel road for about 102 km to Crying Girl campsite. Along this road you will cross the Halfway River on a Bailey bridge. There is a road to the right just after the bridge; DO NOT turn there. Keep following the main road; at about km 99 (the trailhead), the road heads down a long hill and goes to the right around a corner at the bottom. To the left is a logging road that looks like its the main road; KEEP STRAIGHT. A couple kms later you will see the campsite sign on the left. After setting up camp, ride back to KM99 for the trailhead. Look for Christina Road, which may or may not be signed. The road leads through logging zones for several kilometers. Watch out for creek crossings and mud bogs which can be very deep. Winches are recommende.Turn left at the Muskwa-Kechika sign and turn left again at the river. This will lead to a viewpoint of the falls.
Note: As of August 2008, the Ministry of Forests Regulations require all ATV drivers to be at least 16 years of age and have a valid drivers license to ride on Forest Service Roads. In addition, the ATV must have valid third-party liability insurance, which is typically around $120 per year. The Conservation Officers will issue a $600 ticket if you do not have proof of insurance.
