Birken is an unincorporated community, located at Birken Lakemarker in the Gates Valleymarker of the Lillooet Country in the Southern Interior of British Columbia, Canadamarker, approximately midway in the route known as the Long Portage or Pemberton Passmarker, which connects the Pemberton Valleymarker to the Fraser Canyonmarker via Andersonmarker and Seton Lakesmarker via the Seton Rivermarker. Birken, and Birken Lake (officially Gates Lakemarker), are at the summit of that pass, which was part of the important Fraser Canyon Gold Rush-era route known as the Douglas Road.

Birken's name is derived from that of the Birkenhead Rivermarker and adjacent Birkenhead Peakmarker (aka Mount Birkenhead, or Mount Birken), which overlooks the settlement and lake from the northwest.

Located at Birken are the Birkenhead Lodge, just by the lake and adjoining train station, and the Whispering Falls Resort, just northeast.
