Mt Cheam moderate hike through alpine meadows offering a breathtaking view of Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley. Best in July/August.

Time: Allow 3-5 hours for the hike, plus a few more hours driving time each way.

Directions:
Take Highway 1 Exit 119A (Sardis/Vedder). Travel south on Vedder Rd. until you reach the Vedder Bridge. From the Vedder River Bridge set your odometer at zero and travel up Chilliwack Lake Road. At the 27km mark, turn left onto Foley Forest service road. Travel 2km, cross over Foley Creek bridge, then turn left at the T junction. Drive 2km, travelling over Chipmunk Creek bridge. Shortly after this bridge turn right (uphill) on the main logging road (Chipmunk Forest Service road). Travel 7km and turn right up a steep road for 4km until you get to the parking area.

Notes:
You'll need a 4x4 (or something with very good clearance) to get to the parking area and trailhead of the Mount Cheam hike. The last 11km of the approach road is steep and has many deep cross ditches. You're gonna love this classic BC hike. If you haven't done it, put it near the top of your list.
