April Adventure

April 3, 2017

Can you really experience your surroundings just by driving by?  Something elating happens when you hop on your bike, feel the fresh spring air cascade around you, and inhale a little deeper (Namasté).

Then comes the muscle burning, heart-pounding opportunity that Mother Nature has to offer.....a hike in the mountains and trails and discovering a special spot just for you. It's highly unlikely that you'll forget that millionth time you drove to your destination, but you will remember conquering a trail and rewarding yourself with a gorgeous view or a refreshing dip in the lake. After biking to hiking and back again, treat yourself to some yummy eats.
 
Pack your backpack, the Thule, a picnic basket, the bike rack, supportive shoes, and a helmet to experience Harrison Hot Springs in a new light. 

This handy list will get you started:
  1. Let the wheels do the work on a Country Roads Bike Tour
Harrison Hot Springs is far enough away to feel away from it all, but only a 40-minute drive from Abbotsford and a scenic 1.5 hour drive from Vancouver. Click here for further information.

Maybe you are even brave enough to ride your bike here?

HIKING & BIKING MUST DO'S!

SPIRIT TRAIL

Accessible at the East Coast Marsh trails, this is more than an average walk.  Enjoy the cedar trees that have been decorated with beautiful First Nations' masks by a local artist.

HICKS LAKE

Get your kids out to burn off some energy on this family-friendly, 2-hour trail. Pack a picnic and throw the bathing suits in a backpack for a dip in the lake!

EAST SECTOR TRAILS -
SPIRIT & BRIDLE TAIL LOOP

HUNGRY YET?!

Starving just reading about all of the calories you will burn? Refuel your hard workin' bod  with a hearty meal at the Harrison Corner Café.

CIRCLE FARM TOUR PARTNERS

Kilby Historic site, open year-round, is the perfect place to stop while you engage your senses.

SANDY COVE TRAIL

The first 150 meters are tough, but after that you are golden. The reward is a stellar view of Harrison Lake!

NEED TO REFUEL?

Sadly, you can't stop for a nap on the forest floor. You can, however, kick it up a notch with a warm latte at Muddy Water's Café.  You earned dessert. Go for it!

HARRISON GRIND (aka
CAMPBELL LAKE TRAIL)

Our own version of the Grouse Grind! A 6-hour round-trip hike for the experienced -- this trail is amazing.

COUNTRY ROADS TAKE ME HOME

Why walk when you can ride? Take a cruise on the Country Roads Bike Tour and watch the beautiful landscape breeze by you. Better yet..ride to your hike and back!
