Mt. Paul overlooking Coronet Creek

Mount Paul

Mt. Paul

If you want to sum­mit, cram­pons are rec­om­mend­ed for the sec­tion pri­or to sum­mit. Oth­er­wise the trail was fair­ly straight for­ward, canoe across from Coro­net camp­site dock, head into the val­ley until you find a suit­able accent north and try not to get cliff-ed out and once past tree­line, head west towards the sum­mit of Mt. Paul.


A great day trip to tack­le when stay­ing at the majes­tic Coro­net Creek camp­site. You will need a water­craft to get to this area. At a ele­va­tion of about 2800 metres, about the height of Pyra­mid moun­tain. This hike requires an ear­ly start so you can sum­mit. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, we were denied the sum­mit yet again. The pho­tos here are just some of the views you can look for­ward to, even if you do not make it to the top.


There are snow pitch­es and expo­sure, so be pre­pared! The final ascent to the top of Mt. Paul is quite intim­i­dat­ing (one of the rea­sons for the turn­around).


The rewards are still great even when the sum­mit is not reached.



A spe­cial thanks for my moun­tain mod­els:
Kelsey, Rhon­da, Lar­ry, and Mike
