    Route Description for Chisel Peak

    Hiking up to the summit of Chisel Peak is a challenging adventure that will allow you to experience a full range of terrain types and breathtaking views overlooking the surrounding area. The route sets out from a trailhead surrounded by mountains with Mount Tegart to the north, Mount Aeneas to the east, and Chisel Peak to the southeast. Make your way in a southeastern direction through the dense forest on a route heading toward the mountain. After working through the valley, you will begin your climb up the rocky and technical ridgeline. Once you are on the ridge, you can traverse its length by scrambling across the rock in an eastern direction to reach the summit of Chisel peak. Once there, you will have an amazing sightline that stretches west across the Columbia Valley to the Purcell Mountains, and east overlooking the Kootenay River and countless surrounding peaks. After taking in the views, carefully head back down the same trail to return to the trailhead.
