    Table of contents

    Hiking the Dewdney Grind is a challenging affair due to the steep incline and heavily-forested nature of the trail. Along the 9.0 km route you will climb uphill to a charming cabin built in memory of a local helicopter pilot Ben von Hardenberg before pushing on to the summit for scenic views. Make sure to bring a GPS for this one as route finding can be difficult.

    Route Description for Dewdney Grind Trail

    The Dewdney Grind is a difficult out-and-back hiking route in the Fraser Valley that climbs sharply uphill for an elevation gain of 1,001 m on the way to the summit of Dewdney Peak. Route finding along the trail can be a bit tricky as there are many intersecting logging roads on the lower part of the trail and logging operations in the area often result in downed trees blocking the route. Along the trail, hikers will climb up the steep incline and make their way past a small cabin on the way to the summit. From here, you will enjoy views overlooking the Fraser Valley and the surrounding mountains.
