Route Description for Knight Peak Trail
The Knight Peak Trail is a lightly-trafficked out-and-back hiking route near Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park that should only be attempted by experienced hikers. Additionally, hikers will need a 4x4/high clearance vehicle to reach the trailhead, or else they can park further below along Foley Creek FSR and walk the additional distance.
This 11.3 km route climbs steeply uphill through the forest until you reach a scenic meadow. The steep trail then continues through the sub-alpine terrain until it turns east toward Baby Munday Peak. Grades along this section are about 50%, so poles are highly recommended. Instead of following this trail, hikers will instead continue north and find their own route up the steep, exposed ridge to Knight Peak. You will be making your own route along talus, boulders, and snow.
This is a very challenging trail that should be undertaken with caution and should only be attempted by those with adequate experience in route finding and climbing. Reaching the summit of Knight Peak, hikers will have spectacular views of the Cheam Range and the surrounding peaks and valleys.
