The Harrison Grind (aka Campbell lake trail) - British Columbia, Canada

Story:
This trail climbs up Agassiz mountain and takes you through a bit of everything. The trails starts by following a gravel road up to Harrison Hot Springs water reservoir.  From their an old logging road takes you up to a path cut under some power line towers that run beside a series of granite bluffs.  Once past this area you are into a serious climb up the mountain through forest and rock.  After a few hours you will find yourself at the "helicopter pad"  supposedly once used during logging of this mountain.  Nothing remains of the pad but the clearing provides a great view of Harrison Lake.  From here the remainder of the hike is pretty much level as you head west towards Campbell lake.  This is a wonderful little lake populated mostly by salamanders.

This is a great hike but a real grind and takes 5- 6 hours round trip.
Tips:
This hike takes you over rock and bolders and requires you to pass through a few gullies.  You need to be wearing good footwear and be appropriately dressed as there can be some areas that are  a little overgrown by bushes.
