- All Chilliwack roads, tracks, trails, routes and majority of mountaineering routes were GPSed from 2006 to 2009.
- This map was prepared with attention to detail. Chilliwack roads are rated according to road conditions: paved road, 2WD road, 2WD High Clearance road, and 4WD road. Likewise, trails and routes are rated to help guide users through the map area: track, primary trail, secondary trail, route and mountaineering route. This detail will be of particular use in navigation where trail or back road conditions vary significantly over short distances. In addition, small side creek and trailside pond positions, not indicated on any other maps, are shown for navigation purposes. Trail Ventures BC’s maps are based on extensive, detailed field surveys conducted on foot.
