You start this trail just across the Maligne Canyon Hostel facing south east. Find the trail close to the drainage that leads you uphill. You will be in the trees for the most of this trip. When you get higher in elevation, you will come across a old burn area.

This hike takes a full day to complete. So give yourself 8hrs and then some RnR the next day.

Melissa on a scramble

After treeline, you will have to do a little bit of scrambling to reach the summit. This is where, everyone wonders if they are on the forehead or on the nose. Try to guess yourself and tell me. There is a little cave that can fit two if the weather gets bad.

This Mountain is also called OLD MAN MOUNTAIN. Sometimes I wonder if it was named because the shape of the face when you look at it from the valley or because we are getting old and climbing this mountain is for us.
