Route Description for Mount Woodside Trail
The trail up Mount Woodside is a hike in the Fraser Valley that climbs uphill along a steep grade to reach a launch area for hang gliders. The route winds uphill through the trees along a forest service road to the beautiful vantage point that overlooks the Fraser Valley. If you time your hike properly, you can even watch some of the adventurous hang gliders as they launch themselves off Mount Woodside and glide above the scenic landscape below.
