This is the peak from which the provincial park takes its name. Remember, though, that the hike to this summit involves a strenuous long day’s outing and requires some mountaineering experience. For this trip, come prepared; the weather changes quickly in the mountains. Care and proper equipment are necessary if you aim for the peak. Still, the magnificent views from the top are ample reward, coupled as they are with the sense of well-being that comes from accomplishment. However, if you think the scramble to the peak is beyond you, you may enjoy a leisurely ridge walk if you set your sights on Panorama Ridge, which easily lives up to its name and makes a rewarding destination.

This was the third time I have been on this hike. It is the most challanging and most rewarding trail. It helps to be prapared for bad weather and snow. The trail was covered making it impossible to fnd the way. I finally made it to the peak on hands and knees on steep snow covered edges. I lost feeling to the tip of my fingers for a month. Glad to be alive!
