Week #7- Valentine Mountain

Happy Valentine's Day!  Perhaps a hike up Valentine Mountain is just what you are your valentine need!  Valentine Mountain has one of the best views of the Powell River area.  Here you can enjoy a panoramic view including Townsite, The Mill, The Hulks, lakes, ocean, mountains, and beyond. It truly is a beautiful sight and just one of the many great hikes that Powell River has to offer.  Its a very short uphill trail - just less than 1km in length, complete with about 100 wooden/rocky steps.

At the top, enjoy a picnic and explore some of the smaller trails around the summit. On the east side you can see Cranberry and Mowat Bay. If you head to the North side you will get a spectacular view of the Powell Lake Marina and Scout Mountain. This hike is great for couples and families as it is short and fairly simple, while also offering you a great taste of the Sunshine Coast!
