Survey Hill Guided Day Hike

A different kind of hike taking us through the Kootenay Plains to some amazing views of Lake Abraham, the North Saskatchewan River valley and the peaks of Ex Coelis Mountain.

The Survey Hill hike is approximately 16 km with an elevation gain of about 110 m on a well established trail. The hike starts on the Kootenay Plains and takes us along the North Saskatchewan River toward Abraham Lake. Just before the lake, across from Preacher´s Point, we veer off toward Survey Hill where we´ll be having lunch. From the viewpoint we have great views of the lake, the Whiterabbit Creek Valley and the surrounding peaks. Heading back we follow the trail into the forest back to the trailhead.

The tour includes your guide who will be highlighting the natural and human history of the area, a gourmet lunch and hiking poles. We offer transportation from Red Deer, Rocky Mountain House and Nordegg or you can meet us at trailhead.
