The emerald green Radium Lake is a gem tucked away in the mountains above Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park. The trail is well maintained and boasts a suspension bridge and many bridged water crossings. Once you reach the lake you will find campsites near an old cabin site including bear safe food lockers and an open-air outhouse. The lake is beautiful but I highly recommend you at least head up to the col before returning home. After the lake you will pass through a forested area and then break out into gorgeous boulder field and after an hour reach the Webb/MacDonald Col. Plan to spend some time here. The views will demand at least a photo break. From here you can continue onto either Webb or MacDonald depending on your experience level. If you are really enjoying the area try for a double summit!

Directions: Park at the Chilliwack Lake Campground day use parking lot. Head through the campground until you reach the bridge over the Chilliwack River. Walk along the wide trail 2km until you reach the junction. Follow the signs that point to Radium Lake. At times this trail will feel like you have walked forever but just at the point that you think you’ll never arrive, the lake appears before you. After a restful lunch you can head up to
