Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park is located in British Columbia Canada.Mount Assiniboine at 11870 feet is the highest peak in the Southern Continental Ranges of the Canadian Rockies.The park has no roads and thus can be reached only by hiking into the park.It was in the summer that my son Rory Howard Scott Campbell and I decided to drive from Vancouver British Columbia to Spray Lake Alberta to begin the backpack into Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park.The trail head is approximately six kilometers beyond the dam at Bryant Creek Warden Cabin.The first portion of the hike is very easy.At eleven kilometers the hiker will find a sign for Assiniboine.Reaching a trail junction at the edge of Bryant Creek the trail splits.The high route follows the Allenby Pass Trail.Descending the pass the hiker reaches O'Brien Meadows.From this point it is three kilometers to the tenting sites east of Lake Magog.
