Mount Assiniboine Travel Guide
The Mount Assiniboine Travel Guide describes everything you need to know about visiting Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, one of the Canadian Rockies’ most spectacular yet remote parks.
Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park is a haven for experienced hikers, with alpine meadows, lakes, glaciers, and many peaks higher than 3,050 metres (10,000 feet) to explore. This 39,050-hectare (96,500-acre), roughly triangular park lies northeast of Radium Hot Springs, sandwiched between Kootenay National Park to the west and Banff National Park to the east.
No roads lead to Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park. Instead, visitors arrive by helicopter or on foot. LAKE MAGOG is the destination for most park visitors. Here you’ll find a lodge, rustic huts, a campground, and the trailheads for several interesting day hikes.
