Smoke Bluffs Park Hike
One of Squamish's lesser-known sweetspots
Located just steps away from the Squamish Adventure Centre, Smoke Bluffs Park is one of the jewels of Squamish outdoor recreation. A haven for rock climbers, with over 400 granite climbing routes on various cliffs and bluffs dotting the park, the Bluffs are also home to one of the great, short hikes in Squamish.
The Smoke Bluffs Trail begins at the entrance to the park, just behind the Squamish Adventure Centre on Logger’s Lane. Maps can be found in the Adventure Centre. The trail, loops through the major climbing areas of the park and offers some spectacular viewpoints of Squamish, the Stawamus Chief and Howe Sound, is a 2.3km easy hike, suitable for just about all ages and abilities.
The Squamish Adventure Centre is located on Highway 99 just opposite downtown Squamish on the east side of the highway. Turn at the lights at the intersection of Highway 99 and Cleveland Avenue and park just opposite of the Adventure Centre. The Park entrance is located 500m north of the Adventure Centre on Logger’s Lane.
