From the Mount Lougheed Viewpoint, follow the Skogan Pass track on the left. Gain elevation gradually as you hike towards the pass. The path is clear and easy to follow, making this steady uphill effort less technical than routes of similar statistics. Views begin to grow as you make your way up to the pass, and you will be greeted with expansive views when you reach your objective.

Getting to the Skogan Pass Hike Trailhead
