Evans Peak 1

Evans Peak is in Golden Ears Provincial Park, Maple Ridge, British Columbia. It’s an out and back 12 km trail. Elevation gain is 995 m. Trail head is at West Canyon parking lot of Golden Ears Park. The relativity short distant and moderate elevation gain means 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. The view on top is supposed to be spectacular. Unfortunately it was foggy for me that day in the area. It was a great cardio exercise non the less. You need to bring a lot of water, and wear proper hiking boots because the trail is slippery at some sections, lots of exposed tree roots and rocky at other sections. Trail markers can be improved therefore you need to bring your own GPS and map.
