    Directions to Trailhead

    The Hope Lookout Trail is a physically demanding, short hiking route just south of Hope that climbs up the steep lower slopes of Hope Mountain to provide an awesome view over the city. This quick 3.7 km out-and-back hike is a leg burner, but the views from the vantage point are certainly worth the effort. From the lookout you will have a great sightline of the rugged mountains that surround the Fraser River as it cuts through the valley.

    Route Description for Hope Lookout Trail

    The Hope Lookout Trail may be short, but with a steep uphill climb of 466 m over the 3.7 km of trail, it is certainly a grind that will get your heartrate up. Be prepared for a quick hike and a good workout. Climbing uphill through the forested lower slopes of Hope Mountain, this quick hike provides the opportunity to gaze out over the city from a nice vantage point. From here, you will be able to take in the expanse of the Fraser Valley at one of its most picturesque locations - with the beautiful Fraser River snaking its way off into the distance while surrounded by a wall of rugged mountains. The views from atop this tough trail are definitely worth the effort.
