Old Glory is the granddaddy of the Rossland Range. At nearly 8000 feet it provides spectacular views ranging from the Cascades and the Kettles in the west to the Selkirks in the east and the Monashee Mountains to the north—a sea of green punctuated by icy toppings. The hike is demanding, but by making a loop that utilizes Unnecessary Ridge the climb is softened. You and your dog should be experienced hikers and in good physical shape before reveling in Old Glory. Water is not a problem, but most of the high country is open and exposed. In hot or inclement weather there’s little shelter. Snow lingers on the summit well into July. Although the summit block is broad and grassy, the north and east faces contain steep cliffs, so keep your furry friend close by.
