Dewdney Peak Trail

Location: Mission, BC
Trail Description:
A. The south trail is a more difficult hike, and the trailhead
is hard to find. However, pink markers on the trees lead
the way up the trail.

left branch up the ridge to the cabin, where the trail
ends at 680 metres elevation.

tape and the trailhead at the left side of the road, and
triangle markers to lead the way through the forest.
D. Continue on the north trail to a junction, where the trail
joins up with the south trail.
E. Carry on the north trail to the cabin.
Return Distance: 4.2 km

C
1. From Mission, travel Highway 7 (Lougheed Highway) towards
Agassiz.
2. Take a left onto Hawkins Pickle Road immediately before the
bridge onto Nicomen Island.
3. Follow Hawkins Pickle Road for 2.5 kilometres, then continue
straight on Bell Road (Hawkins Pickle Road turns off to the right).
4.
After another 350 metres, Bell Road makes a hard left and
becomes Norrish Creek Forest Service Road as it turns to gravel.
5. From the gravel road, drive 1.2 kilometres to the south trailhead
or 2.4 kilometres to the north trailhead, ignoring the distance
markers along the road.
6. Find a safe place to park well off the road.
