    Route Description for Mount Outram Trail

    The Mount Outram Trail is a popular hiking and backpacking route in the Fraser Valley that can be found just northwest of E.C. Manning Provincial Park. The trail sets out through the forest and climbs uphill until you break through the tree cover and into beautiful alpine terrain. On the way to the summit there is a small alpine lake that is a popular backcountry camping spot for hikers utilizing the trail.

    The approach to the summit of Mount Outram is a real uphill grind with a technical trail that consists largely of loose shale. Pushing on to the summit, you will have spectacular views of the surrounding area, with the opportunity to spot Johnson and Macleod Peaks to the northwest and mounts Dewdney and Ford to the southeast. When you’ve had enough of the views, head back down the Mount Outram Trail to return to your car below.
