Mt. Thom is located in the foothill mountains of South Chilliwack. From the top, there are amazing views of the Fraser Valley, including Cultas Lake. There are a few different starting points for this hike, but today, I choose to start from Sylvan Drive (see location below). You can park on the side of the road.
At the base of the trail on Sylvan Drive, Mt. Thom Creek can be heard (and seen), as you head up a number of stairs. Once off the stairs, the trail is well established and easy to follow. There are a number of junctions, but they are marked – just follow signs to Mt. Thom summit.

Before heading out on your hike, make sure you are well prepared. This means, having the TEN ESSENTIALS. It is also important to leave a trip plan (route details and estimated return time) with someone you trust.
Bring your smartphone, fully charged and put it in airplane mode while hiking. I always bring back-up battery packs for extra piece of mind. It is highly recommended that you bring a GPS device; I use my smartphone with a GPS app (Backcountry Navigator). The GPS will work in airplane mode. Learn how to use it before your hike.
For anyone new to hiking, there is a rule to which hikers follow; it is called “Leave No Trace” or LNT. The concept is generally to pack out what you pack in and respect nature, so all future visitors can enjoy what you have enjoyed.
To learn more about LNT, please check out this BLOG by a certified LNT Trainer.

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
