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.

       Good flowy trail, especially with my younger kids. Lots of people hiking / biking both directions so stay alert.

       Don’t be fooled by the green status. This trail is as fun as you make it.

      A zippy way to get up to high side etc and a fun flowy one to ride down.

      Be mindful and respectful of hikers
