    Route Description for Mount Crickmer

    The hike to Mount Crickmer is a tough but rewarding out-and-back trail that will take you to the summit, where you can enjoy spectacular views overlooking Stave and Alouette lakes that stretch out across the mountains of Golden Ears Provincial Park. Initial stretches of the trail involve hiking along a forest service road before a bit of bushwhacking through overgrown terrain and an exposed final ascent to the summit.

    Reaching the top of Mount Crickmer, you will have amazing views over the surrounding area. To the north in Golden Ears Provincial Park, you will be able to spot the majestic peaks of Mount Nutt, Mount Gatey, and Mount Robie Reid. To the east you can see the long expanse of Stave Lake and to the west the beautiful waters of Alouette Lake down below. If you can get past the less exciting initial section of this trail, you will be rewarded with an awesome visual experience to rival some of the best in the area.
