The Village of Harrison Hot Springs lies near the northern foot Mt. Cheam. Rising 2104 meters, this peak dominates our landscape and offers not only a breathtaking backdrop but a hiking challenge as well. Can you do it?? Yes, you can.
Cheam Peak was part of the oral history of the Sto:lo peoples. The Halkomelem name for the peak, Theeth-uhl-kay, means "the source" or "the place from which the waters spring."
Cheam dominates the eastern Fraser Valley, rising above Bridal Falls and Agassiz just east of Chilliwack. It and three sister peaks form a group known as the Four Sisters or Four Brothers, which are part of the mountain wall framing the Lower Fraser Valley.
Though the trail to the summit lies along the southwestern flank of the mountain, the view from the top to the north offers an unprecedented look at Harrison Lake.
Lady Peak is a mountain located just southeast of Cheam Peak and has an elevation of 2200 meters. It is west of the four peaks in the eastern portion of the range known as The Lucky Four Group. Lady Peak can be summited by a route that branches off the Cheam Peak Trail.
The Lucky Four Group is the name for a group of four mountains in the Cheam Range of the North Cascades. The name of the region comes from the abandoned Lucky Four Mine near Foley Peak and refers to the four summits in the eastern end of the range that are visible from the old mine access road that runs near Wahleach (Jones) Lake.
The mountains in this group, from north to south, are: Foley Peak, Welch Peak, Stewart Peak and Knight Peak.
Hiking Mt. Cheam is something that should be on everyone's bucket list. Check out how to get up there at this great Club Tred website;
