HIKING

Whether you are looking for a family-friendly walk or to hit the mountain hard, you'll find the variety of hiking options in Harrison. 

Don't feel like venturing out on your own?
NEW! Harrison Eco Tours can take you on guided hiking tours!

 

 

In order, from easy to difficult....

SPIRIT TRAIL WALK

Only 30 minutes long, this forest walk takes hikers through a
beautiful cedar forest and past masks that were created
and hung by a local resident.

SPIRIT TRAIL & BRIDLE TRAIL LOOP

Or add the Bridal Trail in for a 5.5 km, 1.5-hour hike
that allows you to get back to nature and surround yourself

Harrison Grind takes you through

BEAR MOUNTAIN

Not for the faint of heart!

leads you past several small waterfalls and
breathtaking views of The Fraser Valley,
