Hiked up to international Ridge with the intention of summiting Amadis but couldn't make it all the way on July 5th 2018.

The trail starts just off the road and is easily accessible to all vehicles. The first two kilometers or so of this trail go along a very well maintained wide horse trail. After about two kilometers you will reach a junction, go left towards international ridge. The trail here becomes slightly overgrown, when I did it much of the trail was covered in plants and stinging nettle, after about 2.5 maybe 3 kilometers of slight uphill through that you will start going uphill towards the ridge. This part of the trail is reasonably steep but luckily not overgrown for the most part. You will be treated to some small viewpoints of Cultus lake, Columbia Valley and the Fraser Valley looking West along the way. At the 7 kilometer mark you will come across a viewpoint looking North and East and you will have a view of the Cheam range, Chilliwack river valley and Chilliwack itself.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to continue on from here as there is no water on the trail (at least as far as I went) and I was running out. So if you plan on going all the way to Amadis it may be a good idea to pack a lot of water.

While this is a great hike in terms of a physical challenge the views are somewhat lacking. The dense forest at the higher elevation allowed little to no view of Cultus Lake. Still a great grind though if all you want is exercise!
