The Allan Creek trail is the first to open each season in the Valemount area and its lakes, bowls, meadows, and steep hills make it a favorite. With elevation ranges from 5500 ft. – 7500 ft., this is a very large area and only the experienced should travel to the far ends.
Family riding can be found around the cabin and lakes as soon as you enter the alpine. Please sign in and out in the cabin record book. Cabin GPS location: N52.577228lat W119.160908long.
The 8km trail from the parking lot to the cabin is regularly groomed with a fast elevation gain that gets you up top in a hurry. It can be done by children, but expect some steeper sections.
