1 hour drive to Chilliwack.
Plus another hour up chilliwack valley & chipmunk creek FSR to parking lot below Mt Cheam.
GPS distance from vedder Mtn Rd and chilliwack lake Rd to Foley FSR is 26.7km
Follow Highway #1 (Trans-Canada Highway) to Chilliwack, taking Exit #119 South. Follow Vedder Road until a three-way stop just before a bridge over the Vedder River. Zero your odometer here and turn left at the stop sign onto Chilliwack Lake Road. At the 28 km mark and immediately after one of the Vedder River bridge crossings, turn left onto Chilliwack-Foley Forest Service Road. Zero your odometer again here.
Follow the forest service road for 2.0 km, turning left at the T-junction after the bridge over Foley Creek. Travel west for another two kilometers, turning right on to Chipmunk Creek Forest Service Road next to a large gravel pit. Continue to the parking area at the Mount Cheam trailhead, ignoring all of the branch roads and following the most obvious track the entire way.
Although the occasional beat up car has been known to make it to the trailhead, a 4x4 vehicle is strongly recommended. The road is extremely rough - it's not uncommon to see 2-wheel drive trucks stopped on the side of the road, the owners with confused looks on their faces as they wonder how they can make it to the top.
