Highway 93 to Lake Magog
You are being shown a specific revision of this resource. Information being shown may be historical or not approved by a moderator.
The trail starts at the junction of the Vermilion and Simpson Rivers near Highway 93, about 56 km north of Radium Hot Springs.
The trail follows the Simpson River to its junction with Surprise Creek. Distance travelled is approximately 10 km, and for experienced hikers under good conditions, the travel time is estimated at 2-3 hours. From this point, one trail follows Surprise Creek via Rock Lake to Ferro Pass (a distance of about 11 km and an estimated travel time of 2-3 hours); the Mitchell Meadows campground is about 1.5 km from Ferro Pass and the Lake Magog campground is about 5-6 km farther along. Another trail continues along the Simpson River through Golden Valley and the Valley of the Rocks and along Og Creek to Lake Magog (distance travelled is 32 km, the elevation change is 1,250 metres, and the maximum elevation is 2,287 metres). The risk of grizzly bear encounters between Scout and Porcupine Camps on the Simpson River Trail is higher than in other areas of the park.
