Mission Interpretive Forest

This interpretive trail highlights the forestry activities and takes you to a stunning viewpoint.

Mission Interpretive Forest

This 1.6 km interpretive trail takes you up through forested canopies and rock bluffs to an impressive viewpoint giving an eagle-eye view as far as Vancouver Island on a clear day.   This is part of Mission's Tree Farm Licence (TFL#26), one of only two in the whole of BC!  The hike takes 20-30 minutes to get to the summit (dependant on your speed and how many times you stop) and is classed as moderate to steep.  Please keep your children close and pets on a leash as there is a steep drop at the top.

Access is from the side of Dewdney Trunk Road just east of the Dam or 1km west of the landfill.

There is a small area off the road to park - so be sure to get there early to guarantee parking.  You will see the trailhead marked with wooden stairs and a bridge.


Golden Rules for exploring our beautiful backyard:

Please ensure dogs are kept on a leash at all times.

Please pack in and pack out all garbage.

Be mindful of your surroundings and wear appropriate clothing for the time of year.

Be respectful of others using the trails.

Let others know of your intended route and estimated return time.
