Chilliwack has many caves to offer you, but the most well known are the Chipmunk Caves. There are many small entrances along the South side of the Chilliwack River, you can get too by foot. Parking is the last pull out before the Folley Lake turn off along Chilliwack Lake Road. From there you walk about 10 minutes down river to a cave opening (if you cross a foot bridge then you’ve gone too far). The largest cave opening is run by the Chilliwack Cave Society and is closed off due to vandalism.
There are no signs directing you to the caves, so it seems more like a secret than anything. Make sure to bring a flashlight with you. Definitely a place to be seen.
