Elk Mountain (British Columbia)

Elk Mountain (British Columbia)

Elk Mountain is located within the Fraser Valley in South Western British Columbia. It is part of the Cascade mountain range. Its highest point reaches up to 1,432 m. It is often frequented by paragliders.

A popular 4 km (one-way) hiking trail called the Elk-Thurston trail allows access to the summit. This trail gains 640 m of elevation from the trailhead to the summit. The trail continues on to Mount Thurston, 3.5 km further along the trail and another 198 m higher. More information on the trail can be found on [http://www.clubtread.com/Routes/Route.aspx?Route=85 ClubTread.com] . The trail passes through Woodlot #0084. Some parts of the woodlot near the trail are due to be harvested by Chi-ihl-kway-uhk Forestry Limited Partnership. The controversy over the granting of the woodlot harvest license led to the creation of the [http://www.elkmtntrail.com/ Help Save The Elk Mountain Trail] website.
