MOUNT ASSINIBOINE

Mount Assiniboine

Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park is home to one of the most renowned mountains in all the world. This is often called the Matterhorn of Canada, because of it’s unique pyramid shape. Mount Assiniboine tops out at 11,870 feet and is the highest peak in the southern Continental Ranges. This 37-mile trail starts at the Mount Shark trailhead and heads to Lake Magog. Camp here or stay at the exquisite Mount Assiniboine Lodge and explore the wonderful hikes nearby, such as Wonder Pass, Marvel Lake or Sunburst Lake. The way out can be even more spectacular if you chose to hike out via Sunshine Ski Hill. This route passes over the stunning Citadel Pass. Upon reaching Sunshine Meadows you can hike or bus the remaining trail to the parking lot. Note that doing this route will require a second car to act as a shuttle. This hike will take roughly 3-6 days to complete.
