First things first, I'm sorry! I apologize for not including your favourite hike. This is a list of the best hikes that I personally hiked this year, and unfortunately I just didn't get to go everywhere I would have liked to. If you have a suggestion, what you consider to be the best hike or at least worthy of being included here, contact me and maybe I can get to it soon. If you'd like to be my guide to your favourite location I will try to work it into my schedule.
These hikes are within a 2hr* drive of my home in Chilliwack and can be done as a day hike. They offer some of the most scenic beauty in and around the Fraser Valley.
I've based my ranking on difficulty, scenery, and "Wow" factor
Statlu Lake and Upper Statlu Lake
Some honourable mentions include:
Slesse Memorial, Cheam Mountain, Snow Camp Mountain, Radium Lake, and Ford Mountain.
*Trophy Mtn is in Wells Gray Provincial Park, about a 4hr drive.
