Swift Mountain is one of the most accessible peaks in the Valemount area. This is partly due to the high access road. You can drive up a rough forestry road (in a high-clearance vehicle) to a point just below the sub-alpine and walk up a fireguard road. The road eventually disappears and then you’ll have to follow the ribbons marking the route. The trail is quite direct to the summit and it’s steep. Once you’re in the alpine, you’ll get fabulous views of the valley, the Village, Kinbasket Lake and surrounding mountain peaks. The top contains some interesting rock formations and a ridge walk. The mosquitoes are very bad during summertime.
