  • Site Description: This trail offers access to the Red Mountain Cabin. For cabin booking information visit http://www.penny-redmountain.ca/index3.html. The trail head starts at an elevational point of 640m and climbs up to 1570m. It is 12.5kms in length, so be prepared for the challenge. The trail will lead you up to the cabin through the old cedar stands, majestic alpines and across spectacular views of the Fraser Valley bottom below. Sections of the trail are very brushy and wet. There are markers and signage along the way. The upper portion of the trail, beyond 6km is strictly non-motorized and is designated for hiking, skiing or snowshoeing only. The cabin is a very popular destination during the winter for backcountry skiing opportunities and it is also very popular in the non-winter season for wildlife viewing, especially by those seeking an opportunity to photograph grizzlies. Please be respectful of this unique environment. Special measures are in place to protect the Caribou and Grizzly bear habitat.

  • Driving Directions: Travel 16.5kms east of Prince George and turn left on to the Upper Fraser Road. Continue until you reach the single lane bridge (63kms). After the bridge keep to the right and travel along the river following the signs toward Longworth and Sinclair Mill communities. Just keep going to get to Penny. The drive typically takes 2 hours. The trail head starts on the other side of the train tracks, opposite the Penny Community Post-office. There is ample room to park.
