The hike shown here is a west to east traverse over the peak of Sentry Mountain. The peak can also be reached as an out and back hike from either side. The west side has moderate scrambling with some cliff exposure near the top. The east side is mostly a scree slope.

Access Info

West side: Turn south off Highway 3 just west of the bridge over Crowsnest Creek 1.4 km west of the west end of Crowsnest Lake. The GPS track starts on the east side of the creek 1.5 km in from the highway, so a ford of the creek is required. The creek channel varies a lot with the season so scout out a good location to ford. It is also possible to follow the east side of the creek from the highway, to avoid having to ford.

East side:
• Drive through Coleman staying on HWY 3 – heading west for approximately 9.2km to the
Visitor Information Centre
• Turn left onto the service road for the Visitor Information Centre
• Instead of turning left into the Visitor Centre, take a right hand turn and drive approximately
400m west to your first left hand turn (dirt road). The GPS track ends at this junction, but it is possible to drive closer to the base of Sentry Mountain to shorten the walking distance.
• Open the gate and close it after passing through.
