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 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.
