  • Site Description:The beginning of this 8 km hike leads you downward to a flowing stream, covered by logs and stones allowing you to cross. On the other side of this stream, you will begin to climb through a lush forest towards an old logging road. This logging road will guide you to a plaque, commemorative of the individuals on board a TCA flight from Vancouver to Calgary, which crashed into Mount Slesse in 1956. Upon observing this plaque, you will experience the breath-taking vista just beyond.

  • Driving Directions:When travelling along Hwy 1., take Exit 119A and begin travelling south down Vedder Road. After approximately 5.5 km, turn left onto Chilliwack Lake Road. At approximately 31 km down Chilliwack Lake Road, turn right just past the Riverside Recreation Site, onto the Chilliwack South Forest Service Road. After crossing a bridge, turn right at 400 m. Follow this road for 5.6 km until you come upon a signpost and parking area on your right. Walk through this area to footbridge over the creek to find trailhead. A secondary access point is located at approx. 6.1 km. Check the Chilliwack District Website for road conditions and accessibility at: www.for.gov.bc.ca/dck
