This will be one of 3 day hikes, we will be hiking Jim Kelly on saturday, and Needle Peak on sunday. Join for a day hike, or join us camping at the Moon campground in Merritt and hike all of them with me! Dog and child friendly, though they are strenuous hikes!

Trail Description

The trail begins with a mild descent that crosses a creek and up into a mature forest. Pay close attention to cairns and ribbons that mark the trail as it can be easy to become disorientated as you will be crossing a large boulder field. Watch for climbers who may dislodge rocks while traversing along the rock wall. Only hike this trail when it is possible to see signs of usage on the ground, and visibility is clear. Once nearing the top, the trail begins to disperse, but the direction is clear for where to head to the summit.

While the trail itself is only 2.43 km one-way, we have added the 1.13 km for the walk from your car to the trailhead.

This trail is best done in July or August.
