Roche Bonhomme

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.

Small shel­ter

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.
