  Hiking in Mount Robson
Provincial Park

There is something for everyone hikers taste in the park ranging from short strolls or walks to extended backpacking trips. No matter how far you go, there will be breathtaking views at almost every turn.

  There is excellent hiking in the Canoe Robson Valley and just around the visitors center there are a wide variety of interesting walks and self-guided interpretive trails available. These trails are well marked and maintained for an easy enjoyable hike.

In the Corridor, there are a number of short, interesting hikes. Water falls, salmon viewing and self-guided interpretive walks can all be found along this scenic drive.

There is an interesting hike in the forest at the Lucerne Campground called Labrador Tea Trail. This is a self-guided trail. The Robson River Campground also offers some great hikes.

The Yellowhead Mountain trail is a much more agressive hike and starts at the east end of Whitney Lake and switchbacks steeply up the Yellowhead Mountain. After about 2 km of hiking there is a a viewpoint with excellent views of the surrounding mountains and lakes then a the 6.5 km mark you will come across a system of sub alpine meadows. This is a hearty, but very rewarding day hike. The elevation gain you can expect on this trail is 800 meters in a distance of 8.5 km so fitness is essential.

 
At the Robson Meadows Campground, you will find easy access to the Berg Lake Trail, which is probably one of the most famous trails in British Columbia. This is a spectacularly beautiful trail that runs along the Robson River to Kinney Lake and is well worth its 10 km return trip.

You can check at the Visitor Centre for current conditions and exact locations of trails.
