Monkman Pass Memorial
Hiking Trail
Time/Distance: 5-6 days/60 km one way
Rating: Moderate to Strenuous
The 60 kilometre, five - six day trail, leads
from Kinuseo Falls, over the Rocky Mountains,
to Hobi's Cabin on the Herrick River. The
trail begins along the existing Monkman Lake
Hiking Trail. The Cascades, in all their glory,
will form an essential diversion, followed by
the shores of Monkman Lake. From here, a
few steep kilometres of newly constructed
trail leads the hiker to the splendid Monkman
Tarns area where there are many options for
climbing the surrounding big peaks.
The Monkman Pass highway project of the
1930s represents the area's most tangible
history. When the pioneers reached Hobi's
Cabin, they would sometimes continue their
journey by canoe or boat, and this option
should be open to present-day adventurers
as well via jet boat to Prince George. The
region traversed by the trail is rugged and
remote. A detailed hiking map is available at
Visitor Centres.
