A bit of a hidden gem, Popkum Community Trail located at 53335 Yale Road (map below) is just outside of Rosedale and quickly accessible from the highway.
Established in 2015, with help from provincial funding, Popkum Community Trail is maintained by the Fraser Valley Regional District and boasts a short hike through some marshland, up a well groomed and staired hill and stretches out at the end to a view of Cheam Wetlands.
We contacted the FVRD to find out more about the trail and they were happy to provide us with further information below, plus for people with dogs; dogs are allowed but on-leash only.
This trail is great for all ages, with a well groomed boardwalk for walkers of any age and a small hill for climbers with younger knees, everyone in every generation can enjoy this trail. The boardwalk goes on for quite a while and has it's own great views, while the hill upwards leads to a small decline and viewing platform of the Cheam Wetlands.
It's a great way to spend an hour and explore our beautiful corner of the world. Enjoy, Chilliwack!
