Valemount has a variety of hiking options, ranging from gentle walks and short treks to groomed mountain trails and multi-day backcountry exploring.
Local guides (sometimes assisted by pack-horses) are also available to lead hikers into high-country alpine areas.
Jackman Flats and Robert W. Starratt Wildlife Sanctuary are best bets for leisurely strolls. Jackman Flats (13km/8mi north of Valemount) combines sand dunes formed by glacial deposits and swamplands, which makes for some interesting flora and fauna. Located next to the Best Western Hotel at the southern edge of town, off Highway 5, the wildlife sanctuary has 6km/4mi of flat hiking trails, with two lookout towers. Other easy trails include Rearguard Falls Trail, Little Lost Lake Trail, and Mica Mines Trail, as well as Robson River Walk, Kinney Lake Trail, and Fraser River Nature Walk in Mount Robson Park.
