Lower Community Forest (Lexw Qwo:m) Treasure Hunt  

  • OVERVIEW: This steep, beautiful, mossy forest loop trail travels past creeks and through stands of old-growth trees
  • ACTIVITY: Treasure hunt
  • DISTANCE: 2km
  • TIME: 60-90 minutes
  • ELEVATION GAIN: 143 meters
  • FITNESS: Some of these trails are very steep so you’ll need to be able to manage rooty, rocky climbs.
  • LOCATION: Lexw Qwo:m Park is located at 51930 Hack Brown Road. See Google Map. Note: There are two “Community Forest Trail” areas. This is not the main “upper” area that most people go to, this is the lesser-used but equally awesome lower section called Lexw Qwo:m Park located right by Charis camp.
  • AMENITIES: Covered picnic tables (6), one outhouse, and a cool little Cedar & Moss coffee shop across from the parking lot at Charis Camp.

  2. Always bring appropriate gear, tell someone where you’re going and when you’ll be back.
  3. Participants must be at least 19 years old and must read and sign the waiver before taking part in the experience.
