Let Harrison Put a Little Spring in Your Step

                                                                                                                                           April 1, 2018

April's sunshine allows for more than just a quick jaunt out of the house. Dust off those trusty old hiking boots and fill your backpack with healthy snacks. Ski season is nearing the end, and it's time to exercise your heart and lungs.

Spring is the season of renewal! Get ready to feel alive, strong, and free to roam wherever the unmarked paths take you!

ADVENTURE OUT WITH OUR TOP 5 PICKS

Harrison has a great variety of hikes, strolls, and walks, from novice to experienced, and with no shortage of sites to explore.

Check out our hiking list that's listed from moderate to difficult.

EASY:  Spirit Trail -- more than an average walk! Enjoy the cedar trees that have been decorated with beautiful First Nation's masks by a local artist.

BRING THE FAMILY: Hicks Lake Trail-- your kids have a bunch of energy to burn after winter hibernation. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy this 2-hour 'hike' with the littles.

MEDIUM:  Sandy Cove Trail (Whippoorwill Point) -- the first 150 meters are tough, but after that you are golden! The reward? A stellar view of Harrison Lake.

HARD:  Campbell River Trail (The Harrison Grind) -- Harrison's own version of the Grouse Grind, with a 700-meter ascent, this is a 3-5 hour hike that is designed for the experienced!

DIFFICULT: Slollicum Peak -- Slollicum is a 1200 meter ascent with a remote 14k return hike, east of Harrison Lake Gravel Road. It's off the beaten path and gorgeous.

 

 

HIKES TO BIKES

You have worked up a sweat and are ready for a monster bowl of something satisfying.

If you are after a pint, stop by The Old Settler Pub or Sandpiper Resort's Clubhouse.

Muddy's serves their coffee hot, and signature-size desserts are guaranteed to 'hit the spot'. Wanting a bit more on the upscale and farm-fresh? Try Harrison Corner, Black Forest,  Copper Room, or Morgan's Bistro. Bring a change of clothes and celebrate the adventure you just experienced.

 

 

UNCORKED WINE FESTIVAL

Unfortunately, this popular wine festival is SOLD OUT by day, but there is some room on April 20, 2018 to explore our restaurants for Uncorked by Night

Rowena's Inn on the River has partnered with Singletree Winery, Morgan's Bistro is with Kettle Valley, and Harrison Corner is collaborating with Maan Farms Winery.

Beautiful food and wine pairings never looked so good!
Please book directly with each restaurant to reserve your table.


 

 

 

"Of all of the paths you take in life, make sure that a few of them are dirt." - John Muir

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.

Love the journey as much as the visit.
