Here is a trail to test your mettle: Harrison Hot Springs’ challenge to Vancouver’s Grouse Grind, close to the village by whose chamber of commerce it was created, though it is now maintained by the B.C. Forest Service. To reach its beginning, drive north on Highway 9 (Hot Springs Road) 5.7 km (3.5 mi) from its junction with Highway 7 (Lougheed Highway), then turn left into the small parking space opposite Balsam Avenue and about 300 m short of the information centre. For your start, after you have absorbed the statistical information on the trailhead signboard, head into the village water-supply area, rising almost immediately to a reservoir, at which point you jog briefly right, the trail being marked for “Campbell Lake.” Thereafter it rises steadily in long swings on the route of an old road, shaded by deciduous trees mainly and overgrown here and there by low shrubs and flowers until you reach your first major viewpoint at Tower 92 on the power line right-of-way, a viewpoint only slightly improved upon by an open bluff on the edge of the forest beyond.
