    Route Description for Taggart Peak

    The Trek to Taggart Peak is a steep uphill hiking route in Sumas Mountain Regional Park that utilizes the Abby Grind Trail before pushing on to the summit of Taggart Peak. The initial stretch of this trail has a very steep grade, so it is recommended that you wear sturdy hiking footwear and bring hiking poles for the return journey to lessen the impact on your knees.

    The trail climbs sharply uphill through the dense tree cover along a route that winds up the side of the hill. Eventually, you will have scenic views that stretch across the green expanse of the valley below. Continue on in a northeast direction as the trail climbs up and down on the ascent of Taggart Peak. From the summit, you will have partially obstructed views through the trees of nearby mountains. This trail is a great way to push yourself beyond the Abby Grind and track a few extra kilometres.
