There are literally hundreds of hikes and walks within a short drive or walk of Hedley.
If you’re only in town for a short visit this map well help you navigate the town. Many folks find an amble around Hedley an interesting diversion and opportunity to check out some of the local wildlife and building practices.
Please note the Creek Walk along 20 Mile Creek off First Avenue and Webster near the top of the map and the River Walk near the bottom of the map just off Highway 3.
Many hikes start off by taking an old mining or forestry road as far as it will go; some roads have been decommissioned and are only passable by all-terrain vehicle or 4×4. If you find yourself on a working road like Stirling Creek or Nickelplate, please defer to the large trucks bearing down on you. They are usually bearing a full load and cannot stop or back up as easily as you can.
An adventuresome spirit will be your best tool looking for hikes in the area. If you approach the following list of roads with a willingness to check out “what’s down that way” you will find old mine tunnels, homesteads, and lots of wildlife and trails.
