The Far Side is a nice, fast, flowing trail that paralells the Cheakamus River on its east side. It can be combined with the Riverside Trail for a nice loop and is often combined with the High Line to reach Tunnel Vision.

Access Info

The trail is accessed from the SE corner of highway 99 and Cheakamus Lake road.
