    Route Description for Hoodoo Creek

    Hoodoo Creek is a moderate half-day hike perfect for intermediate hikers. It’s steep as it rises 600 m in only 2.5 km, so be prepared for a leg burner. The trail follows the creek up the face of Abraham Mountain. This is not the Abraham Mountain route. Make your way up Hoodoo Creek to a good lookout over Abraham Lake. If you’re up for the steep incline, this is an excellent way to catch views of the grand Abraham Lake.
