About Trophy Mountain
There are plenty of reasons why you might want to plan an adventure to Well's Gray Provincial Park, and Trophy Mountain is one of them. At 2575 meters (8448 ft), it's one of the tallest mountains in the park. This subalpine hike provides an enjoyable trek with a wide variety of biomes.
Near the trailhead, you'll find a couple hours of young and old forests, both lush and thriving with easy to follow paths and a slow, enjoyable climb. A few kilometres in, the trail opens out into one of the hike's most well known features—seasonal meadows you're unlikely to find elsewhere. Glacier Lilies bloom gold in late June or early July, followed by a rainbow of colour when Mountain Daisies, Indian Paintbrush, Arctic Lupine, and a myriad of other flowers bloom (into early August). Towards the top, you'll find the subalpine firs bordered by glacier covered slopes. Trophy Mountain is also a popular backcountry ski touring and snow shoeing area.
Start off by following Clearwater Valley Road heading North of Clearwater B.C. for about 11km before turning right onto Spahats Creek Forest Service Rd. Follow this road for another 4km and then turn left heading up the mountain. Once you hit a fork in the road take a right, stay on this road until you reach the parking lot and trail head.
