Hope and Camp Sloughs:

Hope Slough and Camp Slough are meandering waterways that drain the area between Chilliwack and Rosedale. The sloughs run primarily through private property but where the road crosses or parallels them, look for wildlife. Courbould Park has a trail along the river and a some interpretive signs.

 

Access - From Highway 1 take the Vedder Road exit (Exit #119) heading northward. The road becomes Yale Road. At Young Road turn left and continue to a bridge crossing the Hope Slough. Immediately after crossing the slough turn right onto Hope River Road which eventually becomes Camp River Road.

Viewing Highlights - The sloughs are visited by waterfowl through the- year.

Watch for American Wigeon, Wood Duck, Scaup, Bufflehead, mergansers and Mallard.

 

From spring to fall, Great Blue Herons are a common

sight.
