Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada. Covering 92.58 km², the park is located 150 km east of Vancouver in the Chilliwack River Valley.
Chilliwack Lake is suitable for boating, canoeing, swimming and fishing. The park also features several trails, including challenging hikes to Lindeman Lake (1.5 km), Greendrop Lake (5.5 km), Flora Lake (7 km) and Radium Lake (6.5 km). All the hikes at the North end of the Park are considered strenuous mountain trails. Day hikers will want to avoid the Flora Lake trail as it is particularly rugged, and is more suited to advanced and well equipped hikers with path finding experience.
Famous quotes containing the words lake, provincial and/or park:
“Like a canoe route across the great lake on whose shore
One is left trapped, grumbling not so much at bad luck as
Because only this one side of experience is ever revealed.
And that meant something.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
“With respect to a true culture and manhood, we are essentially provincial still, not metropolitan,mere Jonathans. We are provincial, because we do not find at home our standards; because we do not worship truth, but the reflection of truth; because we are warped and narrowed by an exclusive devotion to trade and commerce and manufacturers and agriculture and the like, which are but means, and not the end.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The label of liberalism is hardly a sentence to public igominy: otherwise Bruce Springsteen would still be rehabilitating used Cadillacs in Asbury Park and Jane Fonda, for all we know, would be just another overweight housewife.”
—Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
