This is a great hike. there are three different peaks to get to and you can also get to the top of Shannon Falls. It is not an easy hike, you need to be prepared and take food and water

You can view the Chief for miles and miles. A high tourist stop for anyone visiting this beautiful place. Lots of activity with visitors and you can almost always see climbers climbing this beauty... A must see.

We are definitely not hikers but decided to tackle the chief. It was a tough climb but absolutely worth it. The views are incredible from the top. And 360 of beautiful mountains, trees, lakes...it was really beautiful

Excellent day hike, great scenery along the way and incredible views from the summit! The technical difficulty of the hike is OK for all who enjoy hiking and once you have a reasonable level of fitness, you will be fine.

Squamish Elders closed our assembly. A very touching experience. This hall is a great place to hold a conference or convention.
