  • Site Description:Slesse Mountain exhibits dark multi-horns that make for a well recognized landmark from afar. This trail is different from the "Slesse Memorial Trail". This is the (partially hikeable) climbers trail located on the West side of the mountain. It is rated an extreme hike, and is considered a challenging test piece for budding alpinists and is a total 10 km round trip. From the parking area, approximately 8 km from the Chilliwack Lake Road your journey will begin along a footpath following an old logging road. Travel south for 3 km, where the trail turns uphill. Experience a huge elevation gain with no switchbacks, no rests, and no water. do not become discouraged as you top out on a grassy knoll above the tree line, here you will be rewarded with great views of the Border Peaks and Slesse Mountain looming above.

  • Driving Directions:Travel eastward to Chilliwack via the Trans-Canada Highway #1 and take exit 119 south. Continue through Chilliwack/Sardis, turning left at the 3-way Stop sign before the orange bridge crossing the Chilliwack River onto the Chilliwack Lake Road. Travel 21 km, crossing over Slesse Creek Bridge, then turn right onto the Sleese Creek Forest Service Road (FSR). Travel for 5.8 km then turn left onto a logging road at the fork before the FSR crosses Slesse Creek. Travel until you meet another major fork in the road at approximately 1.8 km, keep going straight on this road for another 0.3 km where you will park. You may be able to go another 2 km if you have a 4-wd drive or mountain bike.
