Sulphur Mountain Trail
As you set out along the wooded trail that rises steadily upwards, the tranquil air at the shaded base of Sulphur Mountain gives way to a fresh breeze whispering across the mountainside. Emerging from steep switchbacks through the trees, you’re rewarded at every turn with glimpses of the sweeping valley view below. Finally, crest the summit ridge and revel in the feeling of conquering 700 metres of elevation gain on your own strength and power.
