Elk Mountain has an easily accessible trailhead, alpine meadows and an excellent view of the entire Fraser Valley and surrounding mountains.
The trail begins and remains in the forest for the first hour, with a friendly uphill grade. After the hour mark, the climb will get steeper. You'll reach the first major lookout on Elk Mountain in approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. Rest there and enjoy the view of the Fraser Valley, but don't quit yet! The real reward for all of your hard work is about another 10 minutes up the trail, where you'll see breathtaking views of Mount Slesse, Border Peaks, the Chilliwack River and surrounding mountains.
