Premier Listings for Sumas Mountain Park

Sumas Mountain Regional Park is located in the central Fraser Valley east of Vancouver, between Abbotsford and Chilliwack. The park on the north side of Sumas Mountain includes the small Chadsey Lake.

The Sumas Mountain Trail, part of the Centennial Trail, can be accessed by trailheads on the eastern and western sides of the park. From the east the trail is 10 miles (16 kms) long and will take approximately 9 hours for the round trip. Hiking from the west, the trail is 7.5 miles (12 kms) round trip (5 to 6 hours). The elevation gain is 700 meters and there are some steep sections. Much of the trail passes through Sumas Mountain Regional Park where it joins the Chadsey Lake loop trail. The summit of Sumas Mountain provides good views of Sumas Prairie, Vedder Mountain, and the Fraser River. For those seeking a more relaxing hike, the circle trail around Chadsey Lake will provide a peaceful outing.

The park is ideal for horseback riding along the forest trail and dirt roads of this wilderness park. Mountain biking in the park is difficult to extreme, and is recommended for experienced riders only. Sumas Mountain is a popular paragliding and hanggliding venue. The mountain provides good ridge flying in winter and early spring, but is seldom flown during summer.

Sumas Mountain Regional Park is located in the Fraser Valley south of the Fraser River, between the communities of Abbotsford and Chilliwack. From Vancouver travel east past Abbotsford on the Trans-Canada Highway 1 and follow the signs to Sumas Mountain Regional Park (Exit 95).

Note: The gate to the entrance of Sumas Mountain Regional Park is closed until further notice. Heavy rains from storms in January caused damage along steeper sections of the road up to the park. Due to the instability of the road, the access gate has been closed until repairs can be completed. For road repair inquires, please contact the Ministry of Forests at 604-702-5700.
