FISHTRAP CREEK PARK
Fishtrap Creek Park is a go-to place for walking the Discovery Trail and searching for wildlife. A paved trail goes around the park, where you can journey through a tunnel of trees to the viewpoint gazebo. If you are lucky, you might happen to catch a glimpse of a beaver swimming down the creek!
Located in the heart of Mt. Lehman, Singletree Winery is a family-owned business that offers a tasting room with knowledgeable staff and a grassy area to sip and swirl your bottle while overlooking their scenic vineyards. One can taste a sample or two, choose a favourite, and then savour a glass under an umbrella. Pair your drink with a Singletree charcuterie box, and you are all set for a perfect afternoon!
