The northern boundary of the valley is usually considered the Bulkey's confluence with the Skeena River at Hazelton (Hazelton, British Columbia), although it is sometimes placed further south near Moricetown. The valley's southern edge is at Bulkley Lake, part way between Houston (Houston, British Columbia) and Burns Lake (Burns Lake, British Columbia).
