Sumas Mountain, also known as Canadian Sumas, is a mountain in the eastern Fraser Lowland, in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia’s Canadian province. It is named to distinguish it from a mountain of the same name just 10 kilometers to the south across the border in the U.S. state of Washington. From Chilliwack Mountain, over the Vedder River mouth, it acts as a landmark for dividing the Fraser Valley into “Upper” and “Lower” parts. The drained Sumas Lake, which is now a flatland called Sumas Prairie and part of the greater floodplain of the Fraser River basin, separates the peak from the nearby Vedder Mountain and the North Cascades. To the south, there is a mountain with the same name in Washington state’s Whatcom County. Matsqui Prairie, a floodplain west of the mountain, and Nicomen Island, a floodplain north of the Fraser River, both sit on the north slope of the mountain. There are a number of Abbotsford’s suburban areas located in the mountainous area west of the city, including Clayburn.
What visitors are saying:
