    Directions to Trailhead

    Flag Hill Trail is a rewarding hike that could be considered an easy stroll. This is an ideal place for a picnic or just a spot to stretch your legs. Once you locate the pullout area and flagged trailhead, the hike is straightforward and covers only 800 m to the top. The endpoint has excellent views of Abraham Lake and sees less traffic than other viewpoints.

    Route Description for Flag Hill

    The hike to Flag Hill is short, sweet, and offers excellent views south of Preacher’s Point. From the pullout on Highway 11, 31.0 km from Saskatchewan River Crossing, find the rock cairns and flagging tape on the side of the road. Begin your ascent on the marked path for 800 m before reaching the large flag at the top of the hill. The views are great from the top, and this hike has a worthy reward for little effort. Don’t let the name fool you—it isn’t much of a hill.

    Getting to the Flag Hill Trailhead
