Musser’s Plateau Trail Description

Hiking the Musser’s Plateau Loop is a great way to enjoy the wooded slopes of North Star Hill, even when there is no snow on the ski runs. The trail sets out from the Kimberley Alpine Resort and climbs uphill along the slopes at a fairly steep grade to bring you up to an amazing lookout point. From here, you will have a commanding view that stretches out across the valley to the Rocky Mountains. After taking in the amazing views, begin your descent along the southeastern face of the hill towards the Moe’s Canyon Trail. Here, hikers will need to make their way past a series of rock falls to arrive back at the trailhead next to the resort.
