Distance: 10kms Allow: 6 hours Grade: Difficult
This trail climbs up Agassiz mountain and takes you through a bit of everything. The trails starts by following a gravel road up to Harrison Hot Springs water reservoir. From there an old logging road takes you up to a path cut under some power line towers that run beside a series of granite bluffs. Once past this area you are into a serious climb up the mountain through forest and rock. After a few hours you will find yourself at the "helicopter pad" supposedly once used during logging of this mountain. Nothing remains of the pad but the clearing provides a great view of Harrison Lake. From here the remainder of the hike is pretty much level as you head west towards Campbell lake. This is a wonderful little lake populated mostly by salamanders.
This is a great hike but a real grind and takes 5- 6 hours round trip.
Tips: This hike takes you over rock and bolders and requires you to pass through a few gullies. You need to be wearing good footwear and be appropriately dressed as there can be some areas that are a little overgrown by bushes.
