Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park is open but limits to parking availability and physical distancing rules will be in effect.
Far away from the busy shores of Cultus Lake is the much less used Chilliwack Lake area. One of the main hikes in this area starts from just under a kilometer from the end of the paved road and takes you uphill to the peaceful Lindeman Lake and Greendrop Lake.
Look for a sign at the side of the road that says "Post Creek, Lindeman, Greendrop, and Flora Lakes". Park along side the road and start the trail from the yellow gate. Continue down the dirt access road to Post Creek. To the right of Post Creek is a sign pointing the way to Lindeman and Greendrop Lakes. Follow this trail as it heads into the trees for a short distance before starting to ascend. At the half-kilometer mark, you will come to a log bridge that was built from a fallen tree. Cross over Post Creek and continue hiking uphill.
Just past the 1km mark, you will see a rockslide that fell many years ago. Another short distance and you've reached the first viewpoint from the south end of Lindeman Lake. Continue along the west shore of Lindeman Lake to a sandy beach area.
The beach area of Lindeman Lake offers a perfect location to end your hike however, for those inclined to continue to Greendrop Lake, continue along the trail towards a boulder field. Watch your step as you traverse the large rocks. Once at the 4km mark, cross over a couple of log bridges and it's only another half hour to Greendrop Lake.
Take a break at the lake before heading back towards Lindeman Lake and the Post Creek parking area.
