Squamish Things to Do: 25 reviews and 35 photos


Squamish sits at the base of a very forbidding looking giant known as the Stawamus Chief. a sheer granite cliff that climbs 700 meters almost straight up, it is possible to climb the chief only you need to go the long way around the back. depending on your ambition, physical condition or available time, there are three different hikes of varying length that will take you to the peak. the initial 15-20 minutes of the hike follows directly beside shannon falls. To reach the first peak takes 3-4 hours roundtrip, 5-4 to reach the second peak and 5-6 to reach the highest peak.
