As well, there are numerous logging roads within the area and HSAR is responsible to respond wherever and whenever required, whether for an MVA, search and/or a rescue. Within the district, there are also two major railroads that travel through the area, CN Rail and CP Rail. The Mighty Fraser and other small rivers also run through the area and provide recreational activities such as rafting, sports fishing and boating.
