Description

Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park is a relatively small park located along the B.C.-Alberta border south of Canmore in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The park has many peaks within its boundries, yet Assiniboine is the centerpiece and main attraction for visiting climbers.

There is a campground on the western shore of Lake Magog that can serve as a basecamp for exploring the area. The campground has very nice ammenities including covered ramadas, tables, toilets, and bear boxes. Campground fees are $5(Canadian)/person/night.

Getting There

There are no roads into the park and all access is by foot, bike, or helicopter. Trails enter the park from all directions but the most commonly used by climbers is from the East via the Spray Lakes road to the Mt. Shark trailhead. Two options exist from Mt. Shark to Lake Magog, either hike 20km or fly in on a helicopter. Alternatively, budget concious climbers may choose to have their gear flown in while they hike. In 2008 the flight cost was $150/person each way.
