If starting at the Gudjonson Trailhead, then this is your only option for getting into the trail system. Well built, and a bit of a grind. It climbs up for an enjoyable, but tiring, 1.2km. To save some of your steam, you can jump off early after the first half km and follow up the gentle 2% trail to reach Sander Lake. Or, if you have the jam, continue climbing the full 1.2km to reach Wapiti Ridge trail. From the Wapiti junction you can go left or right depending on your preference for getting deeper into the trail network.

You’ll also use Sternwheeler to get back to the Gudjonson Trailhead.
