A wonderful year-round adventure with a gentle start to a great summit scramble.

Trailhead: 

Approximately 5.5km West of the Alberta/British Columbia border sits the Great Divide Lodge. Towards the back left of the main building is the trailhead. 

Route: 

The trail is clear from the trailhead and for most of the way to the summit of Mt. Paget. Be aware on your descent if you are skiing down of the narrow path towards the beginning of the trail. 

Follow the trail until you reach the junction for Sherbrooke Lake to the left, and Paget Lookout on the right. This junction is marked by a sign. Follow the path right for 3.5km and 520m elevation gain. This elevation gain is made via switchbacks that begin after the junction. In winter some route finding may be necessary. You will soon find yourself at Page Lookout, marked by a old fire lookout. Stop here to have a break and take in the views from 2135m before carrying on. 

From here the trail becomes less obvious and the climb to the summit begins.

Enjoy the descent as you will likely be making fresh tracks!
