Hiking Al's Habrich Ridge in Squamish

The hike to Al’s Habrich Ridge takes you through a pleasant forest up to the ridge which sits below the summit of Mount Habrich. From the ridge, you have an expansive view of Howe Sound, The Stawamus Chief, Sky Pilot Mountain and the Tantalus Range. From the ridge viewpoint, the trail pushes along further to reach Neverland Lake. 

The snow has started falling and you'll probably want to keep this one on your list for next year. However, we have a brand new guide for this hike - check it out here!
