    Route Description for Arrow Mountain

    Hiking up Arrow Mountain is a challenging but fun adventure that will allow you to take in some scenic views overlooking the valley and surrounding mountain peaks near Creston. Bug and bear spray are recommended for this trail, as hikers have encountered bears and annoying mosquitoes along the route. Additionally, you should make sure to bring plenty of water and snacks to stay fueled for this uphill climb.

    Initial stretches of the trail are very steep; however, the slope levels out a bit after the first kilometre to provide a more gradual climb up the mountain. As a largely forested route, hikers will be able to experience the peaceful woodland atmosphere as they climb uphill and take in the intermittent views over the surrounding area. As the trail winds up the mountainside, you will eventually arrive at the summit, which unfortunately doesn’t offer any real views but does provide you with a sense of satisfaction for having completed the ascent along the steep trail.

    Getting to the Arrow Mountain Trailhead

    To get to the Arrow Mountain Trailhead from Creston, head east of BC-3 and turn left onto 20 Avenue N. In 600 m, you will find the trailhead directly in front of you.
