  • Peak 945 m
  • Climb 500 m
  • Descent 0 m

Distance: 11.5 Km
Time: 4-5 Hours
Elevation Gain: 500m
Difficulty: Medium. Pleasant yet uphill forest hike. Not overly strenuous but long enough with enough slope to require a reasonable fitness level to manage it.
Best time to go: May to October

Description: Vedder Peak is a pleasant forest hike. Views along the hike are overgrown so there's no real view until you get to the top of Vedder Peak . Log ladders are near the top near the summit. A nice relatively low elevation (high point 945m / 3100 ft), early-season hike.

How to get there: Drive East on Trans Canada Highway 1 and take exit 119A ( Sardis ). Drive through Sardis on Vedder road and go over the Vedder River Bridge. Turn left at the stoplights towards Cultus Lake. Just before you get to Cultus Lake turn right onto a wide gravel road called Parmenter road. After 600m go right on Vedder Mountain Forest Service Road . After another 600m go left at the fork. Stay on this road, heading uphill, driving through drainage ditches across the road (you need to have a 4x4) for about 3km. Take the first right turn up a steep gravel road and park at the end of the road. Follow signs on the left side of the road for the Vedder Ridge Trail.
