The Salmon Ridge trail (also know as Teskey Trail) is a short uphill jaunt that takes you right up into Promontory Hill, an ever-growing housing development that overlooks Chilliwack and the Vedder River.

Directions:
We recommend parking in a gravel parking lot on the left hand side of Chilliwack Lake road, about 1 minute after you turn off from Vedder Road. You can also park at the Vedder River Bridge Rotary Trail parking lot and walk ten minutes along a newly constructed gravel pathway that will take you to the Salmon Ridge trailhead.

Description:
Even easier and shorter and closer to town than Cultus Lake's popular Teapot Hill, Salmon Ridge is well suited for an after-work evening stroll or a Sunday afternoon family outing. Leave your compass, hiking boots and camp stove at home.

 In under 30 minutes you'll find yourself up on Promontory hill surrounded by houses. In previous years the trail used to veer off to the left near the top, affording great views over Chilliwack and Vedder, but housing developments have taken over the top portion of the hike.
To give you something to talk about on future hikes, once you've arrived at the high point of the trail, you might choose to venture out into a random Promontory neighbourhood. If you find yourself hoofing around on blacktop, try your luck at getting invited in for tea and cookies by one of the many friendly locals out polishing their shrubberies. You'll find Promontorians an amiable, generous lot.

Time: 45-60 minutes
Distance: 2.5km
