Route Description for Lady Peak Trail
The Lady Peak Trail is a difficult hiking and scrambling route near Bridal Veil Falls Park that shares a trail with the route to Cheam Peak before splitting off to the summit. Due to the rugged nature of the upper portion of the trail, hikers should wear proper hiking footwear and bring any necessary gear such a s crampons, microspikes, or hiking poles to better traverse the rocky terrain up the peak. This section requires a keen eye to pick up the trail and follow along the orange markers and rock cairns that highlight the route up to the summit. Additionally, the road to access the trailhead is a bit rough and is certainly easier to navigate with higher clearance vehicles, although it is not impossible to do so in a smaller car if you’re careful.
Although this trail may be difficult, the views from atop Lady Peak are spectacular and the route itself is far less populated than the route that branches off for Cheam Peak. If you are able to traverse the loose footing along the rocky trail, you will be rewarded with amazing views that overlook the Cheam Range and the glaciers that populate its rugged expanse.
Setting out from the trailhead, follow along the Mount Cheam Trail as it climbs uphill and crosses over several mountain streams. Approximately 2.4 km into the hike, the route will branch off to the right along a rocky stretch heading up to Lady Peak. This route can be difficult to find, so keep an eye out for the orange tape that will highlight the way. From here, the path will lead directly uphill, scrambling past a series of cairns and orange spray painted rocks.
Upon getting to the top of the ridge, keep right along the trail to eventually reach the summit, where you will have spectacular views overlooking Cheam Peak and the rest of the Cheam Range as well as several glaciers nestled amongst the mountains. After taking in the views, head back down along the Lady Peak Trail to return to your car below.
