Pine River Pass

From Canyon

The Pine River Pass is one of the passes through the Rocky Mountains. It is located near the community of Chetwynd. The Pine River flows north and east from the pass, joining the Peace River at Taylor, British Columbia (near Fort St. John).

The pass is used by Highway 97 connecting Prince George and points north, and a railway formerly known as BC Rail (now part of CN).

It is the first main pass north of the Yellowhead Pass and was considered by the Canadian Pacific Railway as a possible route through the Rocky Mountains.
