Provincial Travel restrictions
Parks and Rec Site Closures
In addition, there is an access concern about illegal camping:
From the Squamish Access Society website:
District of Squamish provides the following guidance on its website: “Camping is not allowed on District or private property, unless the property is zoned specifically for that purpose. Crown land does not fall under this restriction, however within District of Squamish municipal boundaries, District bylaws do apply to open fires, littering, wildlife attractants, noise, and environmental concerns. District Bylaw Officers can and do attend many unauthorised campsites in order to enforce bylaws.” In correspondence, the District also added that: “Camping on municipal streets or municipal or private parking lots in the District is not permitted under any circumstances.”
From Peter Winter: DO NOT CAMP ALONG THE MAMQUAM FSR BETWEEN THE HIGHWAY AND THE BRIDGE THAT CROSSES STAWAMUS RIVER. THIS MEANS NO VAN CAMPING OR TENTS. THIS AREA IS BC PARKS AND IT IS ILLEGAL FOR YOU TO DO SO. THIS HAS BECOME A VERY SENSITIVE ISSUE. THERE IS FREE CAMPING AT THE CHEK CLIMBING AREA AND NEW, CHEAP CAMPING HERE.
Five minutes up the gully you should see a break in the right wall with a number of big downed trees. Pass this break and after another two minutes you'll see a smaller break in the right wall with a smooth log. Follow the faint trail up this break.
Once through the break head up a faint trail that goes uphill until you emerge into a pleasant forest with a short wall on your right. A a little further and you'll emerge onto slabs marked with a few cairns. Follow the cairns until the trail (visible as a de-mossed line on the slab) re-enters the forest. At this point you are at the Solarium. A trail runs along the base of the cliff. Sunblessed in particular is at the far end of the trail.
