The Mount Terry Fox trail provides a long climb to the top of the mountain that was named after Terry in 1981. Several viewpoints overlooking the Robson Valley provide pleasant rest-stops along the way. Seventeen switchbacks of varying length lead up to a pine-covered ridge-top, which the trail follows. In the near future, this may be reduced to 11 or so switchbacks if a plan can be implemented to use a logging road for higher-altitude public vehicle access to the trail. Near timberline, the trail is indistinct; follow rock cairns and occasional tree markings and watch for detectable parts of the trail on the ground.

Above timberline, follow the height of land over a couple of minor summits, past a radio repeater and on up to the main peak. At least 4 hours are required and there is no water until a small lake in the alpine is reached, just beyond the radio tower. The views from the top of the mountain are excellent. - Art Carson

Access Info

Take the first left heading south from the Terry Fox viewpoint on Highway 5. Cross C.N. tracks and bear left. Proceed past the gravel pit and water spout. Take the second right to a gravel pit. A sign marks the trail head. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
