Walked the 6 km loop round Hicks Lake. Easy to moderate. 40% on forest walk tight to lake, 40% on logging road close to lake but higher with 3" minus rock surface (the large gravel would have been hard walking for our Lab but for the packed areas where the truck tires were) and 20% on smooth dirt road near...

One of the nicest sites within local proximity of town. Have been there multiple times for summer weekend getaways. It's within an hour and a half of home and the lake is wonderful to spend the day on the beach and in the water. This is defiantly my go to spot if I want to go camping for a weekend.

I really enjoyed being in and on the lake, but found the campground so treed it felt dark and gloomy to me. But don't dispare! There are actually a series of campgrounds along the road and I found one I really liked just past Hicks Lake.

Hicks Lake has long been my favorite local lake (by local I mean in proximity to Chilliwack). The setting is peaceful and serene thanks to it's motorboat restrictions. The lake itself is very small and very warm, a great lake for swimming and boating (you can actually rent kayaks and canoes up there during peak season). I don't know if... More

Have been there many times over the last 20 years and found it lovely. There is a great nature trail that goes right around the lake. Quiet and peaceful. Well worth a visit for camping or for a day trip.

Loved it. There were ropes tied to tree's that you could swing on & throw yourself into the water. One was for kids & the other was for adults. Not to over populated.

Took a dip in the lake, very pleasant for swimming and kayaking. There's a nice view of the peaks to the south from certain areas.

This would have been a lovely walk but half of it is now on a gravel logging road instead of a trail. Pity! It is a very picturesque lake.

We hiked the trail around Hicks Lake. It is a great well marked trail. There are view points all along the trail overlooking different parts of the lake. Although we did not stay at this campsite, the campsites were large and clean. It was a very beautiful spot. We would love to go back.
