Take in views of pristine surroundings as you hike one of the many trails at Stawamus Chief Park. The park spans for 5 sq km (1.9 sq mi) and takes visitors past mountains, trees, and lakes. Tackle The Chief trail to head to the park's main attraction, an impressive rock formation of the same name. Following a tough hike, reward yourself with panoramic views from atop the 700 m (2,297 ft) tall granite monolith, which stands above the waters of the nearby Howe Cove. It's commonly believed that this is the second largest granite monolith in the world. To visit Stawamus Chief Park and other attractions in Squamish, use our Squamish travel itinerary maker.
