The 2.5 hour approach to Allstones lake features spectacular views as well as a challenging hike.  Enjoy fishing, camping, and sightseeing, or opt to summit the mountain for a 360 view of the gorgeous Canadian Rockies.

194km West of Rocky Mountain House, the trail head is marked by a small brown sign, with parking available across the highway on Abraham Lake. Very easy to follow the trail, no scramble sections but definitely a steady incline.  Near the lake there will be a fork in the trail, head left to hike down to the lake and right to summit the mountain above Allstones lake.  Opt to spend some time fishing, camping, or exploring!
