Stawamus Chief

Stawamus Chief Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This granite monolith stands sentinel on the Sea-to-Sky Highway, a rain-gray face that rises up suddenly near the mouths of the Stawamus and Squamish Rivers.

At this point, where Howe Sound begins, hikers make a tough climb over technical terrain for fantastic views from all three peaks of the Chief. And it’s those views that lure in
crowds on any (and every) summer day."

A demanding, steep hike assisted by large steps and boulders. It presents no tchnical problems and the view is the reward. The hike was completed on a hot day 32C - not recommeded without lots of time and water.
