    Directions to Trailhead

    The Taynton Trail is a 13.7 km hiking route at the Panorama Mountain Resort near Invermere that climbs up the mountain along several ski slopes to provide hikers with scenic views of the valley. Although much of the hike follows specific trails, portions of this one are off-trail and require a GPS or basic route-finding abilities to stay on the correct route. Make sure to end this hike at one of the lodges at the resort for some much deserved refreshments after this tough hike.

    Route Description for Taynton Trail

    Hiking the Taynton Trail is a tough but fun way to gain a different perspective of the Panorama Mountain Resort and its many ski runs. This hike climbs uphill along several different runs and uses some off-trail portions to create a challenging hiking loop through the mountainous terrain. Along this hike, you will experience amazing views of Mount Goldie as you hike up towards it, as well as the Sultana and Red Line Peaks across the valley as you descend the mountainside.

    As the trail begins at the resort and climbs uphill alongside Taynton Creek, you will be working along a steep route that pops in and out of the tree cover as you cut across the various ski runs on the mountain. Near the top of the trail, you will pass by the Summit Hut and Elk Horn Cabin, both of which offer the chance to refuel with some refreshments before heading back downhill to the parking lot below. If you want to extend your hike further, you can explore the many trails that can be found along the lower slopes of the resort.
