Sea to Summit Trail
Challenge and Adventure!
Starting from the base of the Sea to Sky Gondola, the Sea to Summit Trail rises through the lower sections of the Stawamus Chief and Shannon Falls Provincial Park Trails and continues up what was once an inaccessible route through beautiful forest to the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola. Views of Howe Sound, Sky Pilot and the surrounding peaks abound throughout. A three to five hour intermediate hike climbing just over 900 metres, the Sea to Summit Trail is definitely a must do.
Access is via the Basecamp parking lot near the bottom of the lift. Follow the marking to the Chief Trail and then turn right onto the Upper Shannon Falls Trail and continue up to the summit. Variations include finishing with the Upper Sea to Summit Trail or the Shannon Basin Loop. The best part…sitting down after your hike up to enjoy a cold beverage on the deck while soaking in the views of Howe Sound and the Coast Mountains.
Drive south from the Adventure Centre on Highway 99. Park at the Sea to Sky Gondola Base Camp.
