Boulder Mountain

Description

The trail head is located just off Highway on the Goat River Forest Road, about 168 kms southeast of Prince George. The first km follows an old logging road then a good trail ascends through open forest to a bowl at about elevation 1770 m (5800 ft) where there once was a small forestry cabin (at the 6 km mark).

From there one can ascend the ridge and reach the summit (another 1.6 km), elevation 2091 m (6860 ft) but the route is unmarked. Excellent views may be had of the Goat River Valley, the Cariboo Range to the west and south, and the Trench and Rocky Mountains (including Mt. Sir Alexander) to the east and north.
