Box Creek is a beautifully sculpted, flowing canyon just west of Squamish, BC. The carving and formations in the granite are very unusual, more resembling the morphology of sandstone than the normal granitic formations.
The canyon presents no particular difficulties in summer conditions, but is somewhat difficult to get to, requiring a crossing of the Squamish River for access. While there is good cell phone coverage in the area, the canyon is impossible to escape in some of the deeper, darker areas. This all adds to a sense of remoteness and isolation, despite the canyon being a mere 3 km from downtown Squamish as the crow flies. While only a half day canyon, the feeling of adventure is much greater than expected.
