Description

Added by Ksenia Ledene

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!

Reviews

Three family members and I did this hike to the fork and then continued to the right, up the challenging scramble to get to the outlook point on the Allstones Ridge. We are all quite active with only 1 new hiker with us but we still took multiple breaks and struggled at times with the scramble. The hike up is difficult in terms of elevation and some pretty uneven trail at times (for those like me with weak ankles - take it slow and watch your footing). But the challenge was absolutely worth it! There are lots of spots to take breaks with most of them also being a great opportunity to take a gorgeous photo! I highly recommend braving the elevation and mountain scramble but be prepared to work for the breathtaking views!
