If you have ever driven Coquihalla Highway you will recognize one of the most prominent sideway features – the east face of Yak Peak. An impressive vertical, one smooth piece of a granitic block, it rises above the highway and begs the question how does one (and that means one without a rope or climbing skills) get up there. Well, there is a trail, next to the face, that will, shockingly, take you aaaall the way. To. The. Summit.
Not only that, the faint trail continues along the ridges of Nak and Thar peak, offering day long views of the strange high country of Coquihalla, something you won’t see from the highway.
