Mount Roderick is on the Sunshine Coast but it has been listed here since the access is from Darrell Bay, just south of Squamish. As you drive Highway 99 north from Horseshoe Bay, your major views are of the peaks on the west side of Howe Sound. Mount Roderick is not one of the more spectacular summits, but it is a pleasant hike, with a free boat ride thrown in. Since Western Pulp, owners of Woodfibre Mill, do not allow private vehicles to use their roads, leave your vehicle on the east side and cross as a foot passenger. Your hike then starts from sea level, and for that reason you may consider making a backpack trip into this magnificent and lonely alpine area, with one of the lakes en route, Henriette or Sylvia, as alternative destinations for a day trip.
