Explore the most popular walking trails near Harrison Hot Springs with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

This trail is NOT moderate. Difficulty should be upgraded to Difficult and Demanding.
Very steep inclines, uneven surfaces and loose rocks, unclear or missing trail markings, overgrown pathways and missing handrails on bridges; all of which make for a sometimes dangerous climb.
That being said, the forest is quite beautiful with many old growth trees, moss covered rock gorges and the fragrant scent of all the flora of the forest.
Did the trail July 4th 2018. Hopefully someone will do some upkeep so others can safely enjoy this trail as well.

The trail is now blocked off where it junctions East, about .75 k in from the start off Lilloet. Apparently there is another way somehow but we couldn't find it.
A resident we encountered mentioned it was due to the crossover private property that led to the trail being blocked.

(If it’s your first time there it can be a bit confusing. Go thru the gate that is marked water shed. Turn right and walk up the rather steep vehicle hill, the trailhead is behind the water tower on your left) It’s about 2 1/4 hours to the lake, not a bad hike. Good footwear is an absolute must as there aren’t many parts of the hike that are flat ground. You’ll deal with a ton of rock under foot and old growth. Trail is marked fairly well, but not maintained as well. You may have to assist dogs up at least one section just before the lookout and the boulder field directly after it. Otherwise not bad, the way down will be slower going than usual for a moderate trail because of the condition of the trail. Not a lot of time to put your head up and look around, because your footing will be challenged.

Pretty but simple hike, a little bit of up and down and one or two spots might require handholds but definitely on the easy side. Couple of alright viewpoints with some small beach access.

A great little trail to break up our day while on vacation in Harrison Hot springs. Kids enjoyed finding all the spirit carvings. You can take the longer bridal trail as an option.

Hiked it march 17 looks like construction at the bottom is nearly complete this was a Saturday so no activity. If you came on a week day not sure they would let you up. The hiking was great, snow starts around the 500-600 M range but not a problem getting to the look out. I did not attempt the lake deep snow.

March 7/2018 completed today....clearly marked with orange tape....nice climb...still slippery at this time of year ...leads to whiporwill loop and lovely secluded beaches

I went to Hike it on Feb 11th and the trail was closed. We went past the gate to see if we could still get up but the paths were filled with machines and tractors. I bet you could still continue but it looked dicey.

Good trail, needs my signage to ensure staying on track about 2 km in we were left trying to guess the way but it was fun nonetheless

We tackled this trail in 15 inches of fresh snow and encountered an endless number of over hanging tree branches and a short supply of trail markings. It was however , an enjoyable loop with some great narrow sections along the Harrison river and beautiful views from Sandy cove. Add in the fact that the trail head is a stones throw from town and a hot bowl of soup, and it makes for a decent way to spend an hour of your afternoon.

Went up part way, started raining hard, so we turned around. Beautiful fall colors and lots of huge moss covered boulders haphazardly placed by playful Sasquatch. Parts were pretty steep; rocks were slippery. We’ll hike all the way to the top next time.

Great! Our kids (2 and 3 years old) loved searching for the masks. It was an easy, well marked trail, and a perfect length for us!

A moderate hike, during a good portion of the first kilometer, the trail was quite overgrown and harder to find. Coming down through this part was difficult as it was hard to see the footing. Overall a good experience though. No bugs at the top but lots of mosquitoes on the way up. Wear bug repellent as we are sporting big bug bites now.

Trail is in great condition, however sandy cove should be called wet cove now. The water has risen so high that there's no beach. Still a cool little hike!

great hike, quite technical but due to the snow we could not make it past the view point. Need spikes to continue to the lake.

it was a nice early morning hike. I believe moderately easy would describe this Sandy Bay hike best. Thanks Rocky for keeping an eye out for my safe return to the resort.

Decent hike with lots of ups and downs. Trail can get narrow sometimes.

The trail is kind of sketchy, and you must pay attention to the trail markers, especially heading back down or you will wander off the trail. (I did it twice) The viewpoint offers a nice view of Harrison Lake. When hiking past the viewpoint towards, Campbell lake, I got glimpses of a body of water, way down. I checked my map when I got back to the truck, and it turns out, it's the Harrison River, close to where it flows out of the lake.
