Mount Terry Fox


Mount Terry Fox is found just north of Valemount in Mount Terry Fox Provincial Park.

The standard route initially follows 17 switchbacks up to a pine-covered ridge top, then follows a series of cairns and a well-trodden path to a radio tower. From there the summit is a further two kilometres to the east and the monument is 2.5 kilometres to the north. There is also a connecting route between the two.

A small alpine lake just beyond the radio tower is the only source of water up to that point.

Named after the iconic Canadian hero, Mount Terry Fox offers a challenge for seasoned hikers.
