|Hope Mountain rises steeply and abruptly about 1700 m, immediately southeast of the Hope townsite. The mountain's eastern flank has been been heavily logged and consists mostly of second growth timber and overgrown logging roads. There are massive cliffs on the southwest side as well as some smaller ones on the east side of the north ridge. There are three microwave transmitters on the summit, and another one on a knoll to the southeast. Hope Mountain can be seen to good effect from the lower Fraser Canyon when driving south down the Trans Canada Highway. The summit can be reached from Highway 3 by 4-wheel driving to the end of Hope Mountain Road followed by hiking up the Hope Mountain Trail.
Name Notes: The Halqemeylem name for Hope Mountain is St'am'ya, which means "What are you?"; notes in the Sto:lo-Coast Salish Historical Atlas comment that from upriver it looks like a woman, from downriver it looks like a man. It is believed to have been "transformed".
