Mt. Cheam Hike: August 18
Perhaps the most iconic peak in Chilliwack, Mt. Cheam offers a 360 degree view of the Fraser Valley and surrounding mountains. On a clear day, the view is endless. You’ll see Lady Peak directly to the South, Mt. Baker in the distance, and the communities of Chilliwack, Agassiz and Harrison. And of course, we’ll take the famous summit photo at the top.
Cost: $99 + GST per person
