  • Site Description: Begin the Chalice Creek trail by hiking the old road for about 3 kilometres. The trail then ascends gently along forested slopes following the flow of the creek. A few kilometres later the trail crosses to the east side of the creek (at a trail junction with a heli-hiking route) and becomes steeper, switchbacking up through sub-alpine forest. The forest opens into alpine meadows with spectacular views of the granite spires of the Bugaboos. From here, one can hike through the meadows and onto the ridges above. The trail continues straight then leaves the treed area for another 5 minutes bringing you to a tiny lake. There is a picnic spot used by heli-hikers at the shore of the lake. A cross country route connects the Chalice Creek Trail with the Septet Pass Trail in the Frances Creek drainage.

  • Driving Directions: From Brisco (42 kms north of Invermere on Hwy 95), follow the signs directing you to Bugaboo Provincial Park. After 47 kms, the road to the right gives access to the Kain Hut trail, Cobalt Lake trail and the private CMH Bugaboo Lodge. Continue on the main road, then soon turn left and cross Bugaboo Creek. Continue straight for 1.5 kms and take the upper left fork in the road. From this junction travel 1.5 kms of rough road to a parking area. This last portion of road is narrow and rough, and may not be suitable for cars. Overnight camping and picnicking are accommodated at the Bugaboo/Septet Recreation Site. It is located about 100 metres east after the Bugaboo Creek crossing.
