Bugaboo Provincial Park view west from Cobalt Ridge, British Columbia, Canada.
Hike to Cobalt Ridge for an overview of glaciers and peaks in Bugaboo Provincial Park, in the Purcell Range of the Columbia Mountains, British Columbia, Canada. Most tourists are attracted by nearby Canadian Rockies parks along fast paved highways and skip gravel logging roads, thereby leaving the spectacular "Bugaboos" as a quiet retreat for hikers, climbers, and luxury CMH helicopter guests. Directions: From Brisco (about 44 kms north of Invermere on Hwy 95), follow signs to Bugaboo Provincial Park and CMH Lodge on a gravel logging road. After 47 kms, turn right on a rougher road to reach Cobalt Lake trail head and Kain Hut trail head, or continue straight along Bugaboo Forest Service Road. Before you reach the gate of luxury CMH Bugaboo Lodge, a left turn crosses Bugaboo Creek bridge: then a left reaches Bugaboo Septet Recreation Site (4 primitive campsites in a free, user-maintained campground reachable by 2WD vehicles) or straight up takes 4WD vehicles and hikers to Chalice Creek trailhead. The panorama was stitched from 5 overlapping images.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
