Whether it's a stroll along the shore-side promenade or a more strenuous climb up Bear Mountain, Harrison Hot Springs' variety of trails cater to family walks, brisk workouts and extreme hikes.
Located within a 30 minute drive are destinations such as Bridal Veil Falls (the sixth highest falls in Canada), Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park (great for picnics and family nature walks) and Othello Quintette Tunnels (once a part of the Kettle Valley Railway system) are also worth exploring. Hop on a water taxi and head for Long Island in the middle of Harrison Lake; it, too, has numerous trails and lakes.
Harrison Beach Promenade
Enjoy an easy stroll beside the beach and along a man-made dyke that encloses a swimming lagoon. The trail includes benches as well as points-of-history markers along the way. It runs west to the hot springs source and east along Rockwell Drive to the Ranger Station Public Art Gallery.
