A handful of people, not content with the Mountain Lakes Trail, have added an extra spur on to the top of the Three Sisters. This is a monstrous climb up a rocky scree slope. The rewards are amazing 360 views over Fernie and back to Mt Bisaro and others. The down is perilous loose rock with potentially very serious consequences if you lose control. You've been warned!

Access Info

At Three Sisters Pass there is a wooden sign board and you will see the trail snaking up the Three Sisters ridge

Really good going at the moment (for a scree field anyway). A pretty decent track goes all of the way with only a few dicey moments. Wear boots...
