Kristi Glacier


The trail heads up the valley to a fork in the stream. The north fork descends from a pass to the right at the headwaters of the milk river. The south fork, which the trail follows, leads to Cariboo Pass. Along the trail is a scenic waterfall, great alpine meadows. Above the Pass, on both sides, are magnificent views of icefields with the Kristi Glacier located to the west. At the end of the trail (3 km past the pass) is campsites with camp pads.
