Stewart Peak trail map
Near Chilliwack use the exit 119 on the Highway #1 to turn to the Vedder road. Proceed southwards till you get to a bridge over the Chilliwack river. Turn left just before the bridge to the Chilliwack Lake road. Drive ~27Km and just after crossing the bridge over Chilliwack river, turn left into Foley Creek FSR. Drive 2Km where you will be driving along Chilliwack river on the other side and then Foley Creek (notice the change in water direction). After you cross the bridge, turn right. Drive for another 2Km along Foley Creek. Cross another bridge over Foley Creek. After about 150m, turn left at the junction where you will cross Foley Creek for the third time. This logging road will go to the left first, then it makes a sharp turn to the right, then on the intersection choose a right road. From the beginning of the logging road till the trail head, you need to drive ~3.5 km till you notice a parking spot and an abandoned logging road to your right at about (970m altitude).

The real fun starts at 1650m after about 680m of elevation gain where the meadows start. Perhaps they are most beautiful one that I have seen. An abundant blueberries also awaited us. They were ripe and sweet. We could have survived on them for weeks. And no bear marks. Perhaps they need 4x4 ride like us. The trail to the meadows is steep. There is no switchbacks. Some eroded and slippery areas but it is generally well defined and marked. On the meadows, the trail becomes almost invisible, just a faint pathway. There is also no marked trail after the meadows. The peak rocks are excellent. Some loose rocks on more gentler slopes and sturdy rocks on steeper ones. A trade off and multiple ways are possible. The Peak is small and exposed on the north side. Absolutely beautiful views. A worthwhile trip. It took 9:50 hours.

The Knight-Baby Munday-Stewart-Stills part of the Cheam Range is a pristine, somewhat off-the-beaten-path excursion in the Chilliwack area. Kinda like Tricouni to the Stawamus Chief would be what Stewart Peak is to Mount Cheam. The views-to-effort ratio is great and there are hardly anyone to be seen on the trails. We saw one other party about 1 km ahead of us in the entire day. The steepness of the ascent is mitigated by the gorgeous flora and abundant blueberries in the alpine. The meadows are absolutely stunning; the temperature and sun intensity perfect for hiking. I sustained a deep contusion on my right knee attempting Tetrahedron Peak two weeks ago and chose to stop at the 2,050 m level today - at a glacial tarn just below the Baby Munday-Stewart col. It was such a stunning and photogenic backdrop that I hardly felt the time passing waiting for the summit party to return - even though it was barely above freezing. The company on the hike was terrific and I enjoyed

After turning off from the deactivated road, it is a descent of some 100m to the Airplane creek. There were a few muddy and slippery sections, but the trail became dry as soon as we crossed the creek. The hike up through the forest was relentlessly steep and required occasional use of hands. Lack of switchbacks made for a fairy fast ascent to the alpine which was bursting with beautiful fall colours. Two of us, relying on Matt Gunn’s guidelines which suggested turning right (east) at 1800m, hiked over 100m extra up the slope of Baby Munday. Realizing the mistake, had to descend down the steep unpleasant talus slope and traverse the south face of Baby Munday to get to the route leading to Stewart peak. At least according to our GPS, the fork to the right leading to Stewart was at 1700m and not 1800m, right after the burnt-out campfire site. There was a cairn shortly before, but unlike the left branch of the fork, the right one is barely noticeable. The abundance of berries slowed
