    Directions to Trailhead

    The trail up to Mount Aeneas is an 8.5 km out-and-back hiking route that will lead you through the alpine terrain of Pedley Pass and up the rocky summit for some breathtaking views over the surrounding mountain peaks. Hikers should bring poles and helmets for this trek as they will need to climb up rocky scree slopes to reach the summit. Only attempt the drive into the trailhead if you have a 4x4 high clearance vehicle—regular cars are not suitable for the rough terrain.

    Route Description for Mount Aeneas

    Hiking to Mount Aeneas is a truly remarkable adventure in the Invermere area that will leave you speechless after experiencing the breathtaking views from the summit. The trail initially sets out from the parking area and climbs uphill through the forest before breaking out into the beautiful alpine terrain of Pedley Pass. Shortly after the pass, you find a small alpine lake and will be surrounded by the dramatic, rocky peaks of Mount Aeneas and Pedley Ridge. Continue past the lake and through the gully to work your way up the scree slopes towards the summit.

    After some light scrambling, you will arrive at the top of Mount Aeneas and be greeted with a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding mountain peaks that include Indian Head Mountain to the south, Mount Pedley to the southeast, and Mount Tegart to the west. After basking in the breathtaking views, carefully make your descent of the mountain and head back through the pass for the return journey home.
