The Two RV Gypsies: Full-Time RVers
at Hixon Falls - Hixon, British Columbia, Canada
May 24, 2009
The community of Hixon is in the north Cariboo of British Columbia, halfway between Prince George and Quesnel. It is a farming, logging, mining, and retirement community with a population of 500. The town is situated at the confluence of two streams. Hixon is named after Joseph Foster Hixon, the leader of an 1866 gold mining expedition. Considerable gold was found in the area and local legend has it that the largest gold nugget in the Cariboo was found in Hixon Creek.
Hixon Road is a small, narrow, and curvy dirt road - definitely not the road for an RV, but it is worth the short road trip in a car to get to Hixon Falls and the Chutes.
