Hike to Chadsey Lake

Abbotsford has some of the most picturesque views hidden within the mountains, including the beautiful Chadsey Lake on Sumas Mountain Regional Park! This hike can be slightly challenging with its narrow, bushy, and muddy trail, so make sure you’ve dressed appropriately before trekking out into the mountains.

It’s a FREE live event that happens every Thursday from 7 PM to 10 PM at Jubilee Park, with live music, local artists, and food & drinks.
