Mount Robson, Hiking

For anyone out there that loves a great hike, then I would seriously recommend hiking Mount Robson just on the border of British Columbia and Alberta. This great hike can be done by the easier of beginner hikers all the way to the well advanced. The first section of the trail up to Kinny Lake is quite easy and wheelchair accessible so that anyone can do it. Because it is always open to the elements though, the trails can sometimes get a bit dirty and muddy and make wheelchair travel a bit more difficult, but not impossible. Beyond Kinny Lake, the trail goes all the way up the mountain to the top to Berg Lake, some amazing cakes, and of course a giant glacier. The well advanced hikers can make it all the way up to the top and back down to the bottom again in one day, but for those more willing to take their time, you can camp at various locations along the way up the mountain at many different campsites. There are some incredible waterfalls along the way at Emperor Falls, and some amazing scenery as well. Some of the scenery I swear could be used to film a dinosaur or Jurassic Park movie. Mount Robson is the highest mountain in the Rocky Mountains and I definitely recommend this hike to anyone out there, either a nice day hike or a couple day hike to the top.
