    Williams Peak Trail

    Hiking the Williams Peak Trail is a physically demanding adventure in the Fraser Valley that climbs up a steep ridge before a technical push to the summit. This 15.0 km out-and-back hiking route provides hikers with absolutely amazing views of the surrounding area, but not without punishing them along the journey. During the summertime there are few water sources along the trail, so make sure to pack extra so that you can stay hydrated on this tough uphill hike.

    Route Description for Williams Peak Trail

    The Williams Peak Trail is a challenging out-and-back hiking route near Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park that should only be attempted by experienced hikers due to the extremely steep incline and rugged nature of the route. The initial portion of the hike is a steep climb up to Williams Ridge that packs a physically demanding 872 m of elevation gain into a short distance of 2.2 km. With your legs burning from the uphill grind, you will then need to traverse the ridgeline on the approach to the summit. This portion of the trail has several boulder fields and small scrambles as well as a very steep grade, making for a technical climb up the peak. For those hikers that do make it to the summit, you will be greeted with spectacular views overlooking Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park. Make sure to wear proper hiking footwear, bring extra gear like crampons or microspikes, and pack extra water for this challenging trail in the Fraser Valley.
