    Route Description for Flora Lake Trail

    The Flora Lake Trail is a difficult hiking route that can be found within the beautiful Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park. It offers the opportunity to summit Flora Peak before continuing on to the lake itself. With an elevation gain of 1,700 m, this route is a real leg burner; however, the amazing 360° views from Flora Peak are well worth the grind and you’ll also have the added bonus of being able to soak your feet in the cool waters of the lake. Although it won’t fully negate the effects of the long uphill climb, it’s one of the little things that make this such a great hike.

    Setting out on the trail from the parking area off Chilliwack Lake Road, follow the path through the forest as it climbs uphill along a series of switchbacks towards the northeast. As you meander through the dense forest and cross over several streams, you will eventually break through the tree cover into a meadow and come to a junction in the trail leading left. Follow this to continue on a route that will take you to the summit of Flora Peak.

    This climb isn’t overly difficult, but when you reach the summit you will have panoramic views overlooking Flora and Chilliwack lakes as well as numerous nearby mountains, including Mount Wittenberg and Williams Peak. After enjoying the sights, head back down to the main trail and follow it left to descend along the trail to the edge of Flora Lake.

    Take some time to explore the area around the lake and bask in the peaceful waterside atmosphere. After you’ve taken in the views, make your way back along the same route to complete your journey on the Flora Lake Trail.
