This is the highest maintained trails in Canada. This is a great ridge walk.
Do your own research.
EXPERIENCED HIKERS ONLY ON THIS TRIP. There will be some easy scrambling.
Please answer the questions:
Distance: 14.6 km or longer
Elevation 1334 m
Time: About 8-9 hours
Participation: The trip organizer reserves the right to move people on and off the trip or wait list, or to increase or reduce the size of the group, in order to match people to the trip based on fairness, ability, safety, and other criteria. Hey! It’s my trip.
Note: This is a big day 1334 m elevation gain is a lot to cover in a day. I may take an alternative ridge down from Mt. Allan involving a bit of bush whacking. If we do this we will end up dropping down onto the Ribbon Creek trail and making a bit of a loop.
Speed: We will travel at a slow/moderate pace.
We start at the Ribbon Creek parking lot: down Hwy #40

Here is the essential items packing list for this trip. This packing list is intended to keep you safe and comfortable on the trail and prepare you for possible situations:
- Microspikes, there is snow and ice.
- proper hiking footwear (Waterproof hiking boots only. No sneakers, sandals, or flip flops, they can cause blisters, punctures and sprains) might want winter boots.
- First Aid Kit (Please include treatment for blisters, small wounds, and sprains. Please put any medical information such as allergies, conditions and emergency contacts in your kit.)
- Athletic, quick dry clothing (polyester, nylon or wool) - no cotton, it doesn't dry fast enough and can lead to blisters or, in the worst case scenario, hypothermia - yes it happens in the summer too!
- Rain coat and rain pants (you never know, the forecast isn't always right!)
- A warm layer (sweater, fleece...)
- Lunch and snacks
- a flashlight or headlamp (I don't plan to be stuck on the trail in the dark, but it can happen and we don't want to be stuck out overnight because a group member forgot to bring a light source.)
- Water (at least 2-3 litres)
- Cash to pay driver for gas (if not driving yourself) - about $10 at the discretion of the driver
Highly recommended: hiking poles, gaiters and Camera
