Mission is a quaint rural community positioned on a hillside above the mighty Fraser River, among coastal mountains and sprawling farmland, and about an hour's drive east of Vancouver. Given its geography, it's no wonder the area is known for its tremendous fishing, hiking, swimming and camping experiences.

Getting back to nature is easy in Mission, especially in beautiful park areas such as Hayward Lake and Rolley Lake Provincial Park.

Hayward Lake's 10 kilometre Reservoir Trail offers a relaxed and peaceful setting, while easily connecting with the area's scenic six kilometre Railway Trail. As one of Metro Vancouver's more popular provincial parks, Rolley Lake is an outdoor explorer's dream with its impossibly idyllic wilderness setting, warm water lake and array of outdoor experiences - from swimming, fishing and canoeing to camping, picnicking and hiking.
