Recreation

Dewdney Peak can be hiked via two trails on the east side of Dewdney Peak, accessed via the Norrish Creek Forest Service Road to the immediate east of the peak. The hike to the summit of Dewdney Peak - "The Dewdney Grind" - allows access to a memorial cabin named for Ben Von Hardenberg, a local firefighter who perished in a helicopter accident in 2003.
