Hikers will climb through the forest and visit Tony’s Lookout before continuing along the trail to reach the summit.

    Route Description for Slhanay Peak Trail

    The Slhanay Peak Trail is a 5.8 kilometre lollipop trail in Stawamus Chief Provincial Park that travels up a steep slope to several scenic lookouts along the trail. Hikers should make sure to bring a trail map or a GPS along for this hike, as there are several trails that branch off from the main route and it is not always clear as to which path is the correct one. Additionally, make sure to wear sturdy hiking footwear and pack lots of water, as the trail is very steep and physically demanding.

    The route sets off from Mamquam River FSR and climbs uphill through the dense tree cover at a steep grade. Roughly ⅓ of the way into the hike you will come to Tony’s lookout, which offers the most scenic views along the route and encompasses a sightline across the Squamish Valley and the iconic Stawamus Chief. Hikers will then continue along a rugged loop through the intermittent tree cover and eventually make their return along the same route. The steep incline along this short hiking route makes it ideal for building fitness, and it doesn’t hurt that the views are also spectacular.
