These Chilliwack-area grind trails are steep, low-elevation, and spring-season-friendly. Completing the grinds will require reasonable fitness and a willingness to climb a few hundred meters of elevation over a short distance. Get ready for an exhilarating experience where you’ll sweat, get dirty, and have the time of your life, whether you’re going solo or with friends. While they’re not the hardest, longest, or steepest grind trails around, they still provide a rewarding workout.

The Spring 10 Grind Challenge trails vary in length from 3 to 8 km and feature a modest elevation gain ranging from 300 to 1,000 meters. Some grinds are suitable for repeats, while others are best experienced as one-offs. Here’s the grind lineup:

  1. QoQo (Vedder Mountain)
  2. Bowman (Vedder Mountain)
  3. Magic (Community Forest)
  4. Watt (Columbia Valley)
  5. Karver (Ryder Lake)
  6. Tea Bench (Columbia Valley)
  7. Salmon (Chilliwack River Valley)
  8. Surprise
  9. Surprise
  10. Surprise

Note: You might be wondering about local grinds like Abby Grind, Goat Ridge, William’s Ridge, and Harrison Grind. They are not included due to various reasons, including permitting issues, private property concerns, their difficulty, location outside the Chilliwack area, or high elevations that may be too snowy in spring. Instead, we’ve carefully selected trails that can be completed in around an hour or two, depending on your pace, each offering challenging climbs and suitable for those with average fitness levels.


Recent 10 Trail Challenges have raised over $3500 in donations. Thanks to your participation in the 10 Trail Challenge we’ll be able to continue supporting local nonprofits. All donations for this Challenge will support local trails via the Chilliwack Park Society.
