Kinney Lake (2009.8.20)

This was my last hike during our four-day-journey to Canadian Rockies. Kinney Lake is actually the first destination of long a backpack trail. Further up the valley, Berg Lake and Snowbird Pass are the major destinations for most parties. Also, if you wish to approach Mt. Robson on foot, the highest and second most difficult mountain in the Canadian Rockies, you also need to do this trail. The 3000m vertical relief of this giant is the highest and probably the most impressive face in the entire Rocky Mountain. The trail to Kinney Lake is not short, but very flat. Since we wanted to drive back to Vancouver not too late, we did manage to pass most parties along the trail. Once arrive the lake, the reflection of the surrounding mountains including Whitehorn Mountain and Mt. Robson is stunning. I would like to do this trail again in the future to further explore this unique area.
Distance: 14km, Round Trip Time: 3 hours 20 minutes
