Lillooet – Seton Lake, Naxwik park & beyond

Lillooet – Seton Lake, Naxwik park & beyond

Lillooet is pretty amazing. It’s a small town on the Fraser River, four hours North of Vancouver. It is surrounded by ridiculously beautiful scenery with mountains, lakes and loads of possible hiking trails; The town’s slogan is “guaranteed rugged.” It may have achieved the slogan as being the start of the road for the historical Cayoosh Gold Rush, but it’s equaly appropriate now with Lillooet being a great base for adventures. We visited as part of our mini road trip…

The lovely Al’s Habrich ridge trail is a continuation from our previous hike on the Sea to Summit trail in Squamish. So, we’d woken up early and already hiked 8km and 850m before this hike starts. We’d then stopped for some lunch overlooking gorgeous views of Squamish, Mount Garibaldi and the Tantalus Mountains. However, if you fancy an easier half day hike, take the gondola up the steep section of this mountain, then enjoy this easier hike up above the clouds. Al’s…
