Good trail to the lookout, then well-cairned and steep use trail to the summit. The view would have been nicer with less smoke. Met a mother black bear and 2-3 cubs on the way down, my only bear encounter so far in Canada.
Paget lookout with great views all round
Another amazing day in Yoho. This is a special place for me - near where I did my first hikes in the mountains and full of great memories!
This was the 7th peak of our hiking extravaganza. A nice easy hike after doing a few harder ones. Kane's book says it's about an hour from the false summit to the true summit. That's total nonsense. It's only 5 minutes away.
Hot day for June. Lots of snow sluffing off the peak, clear skies and unbeatable views.
An nice walk up for a pleasant day with some friends.
A small trip to kick off Canada Day. I once tried this peak on snowshoes but a fierce winter storm came in near the lookout. This time it was an easy hike on a beautiful summer day.
I scrambled up in August - I know this is a ski ascent page, but this is a nice place to try on your first day in Yoho. The view of the glaciers, crags and Kicking Horse river from the top was jaw dropping. I honestly think I could have gone home happy with just that view.
Summited with three friends after a lot of routefinding and potholing (even with snowshoes) in the forest. Found a sort of small snowcave at the summit.
I made this a long day, of piddling with my equipment, snacking and bathing in the sun. Skiing any slope like this has its many hazards, particularly solo. Be safe!
