Crowsnest Ridge

Join us for a hike up on Crowsnest Ridge.
This is a hike up rough roads to the peak with the masts on top above Crowsnest Lake. We start from the BC side of the divide. The hike is rated moderate due to the elevation gain but otherwise the hiking is straightforward. Expect views east and west through the pass as well as Sentry, Philips and Tecumseh mountains nearby. The event picture shows Crowsnest Ridge in the centre of the picture (a dark ridge) with Sentry Mountain to the left and beyond.
Round trip distance 12 km
Elevation gain and loss: 500 metres
