  • Site Description:
    ATTENTION: The Mt. Cartier Lookout Recreation Trail is closed from the lower viewpoint junction to the summit of Mt. Cartier due to a bridge closure. The McKay Creek Bridge is closed due to public safety concerns. An engineering assessment conducted in the fall of 2020 deems the structure poor. The McKay Creek bridge is located approximately 2.4km from the trailhead. This trail section will remain closed until the bridge is replaced. Check back for updates.

    The Mount Cartier Trail is a 15 km hike (with 2300m elevation gain) up an old horse trail to a lookout tower on top of Mount Cartier. The lookout tower is at 2560m. The trail is used for mountain biking and hiking.
    At higher elevations in the late summer there can be a shortage of water, so take along extra supplies.

  • Driving Directions: The trail head is about 6 km south of the Airport on Airport Way.
