Evans Peak is in Golden Ears Provincial Park, Maple Ridge, British Columbia. It’s an out and back 12 km trail. Elevation gain is about 995 m. Trail head starts at West Canyon parking lot of Golden Ears Park. The relatively short distant and moderate elevation gain mean that the trail inclines steadily from the beginning. Close to the top, there are a couple sections you have to pull yourself up using ropes. You need to bring a lot of water, and wear proper hiking boots and hiking poles because the trail is slippery at some sections, lots of exposed tree roots and rocks at other sections. Trail markers can be improved, and there are a few forks along the trail, therefore GPS and offline maps are highly recommended.
View at the peak is beautiful, if it’s a clear day. I have been to Evans Peak twice now. The first time it was so foggy I couldn’t see anything on the top. The second time it was a clear day and that provided an opportunity for me to take some beautiful photos.
