Criss Creek FSR

Criss Creek FSR (Forest Service Road) is a very scenic and beautiful backroad drive through semi-arid grasslands surrounded by rocky mountains near Walhachin, BC. Criss Creek FSR was formerly known as Johnson Road and branches off the Deadman Vidette Road.

Note: Criss Creek Forest Service Road is currently closed at 10 km due to a failed bridge. However, you can still drive until 10 km and enjoy beautiful scenery.

Remember when you are traveling on these backroads, it’s not about the destination but the journey!
