Sam McGee Trail
618 m (2028 ft)
Follow this historic trail up into the alpine below Montana Mountain. The trail was originally made to service the tramway built in 1905 by Sam McGee for a silver mining operation. There are many remnants of the tramway and mining artifacts along the trail. The view from the top is fantastic, with Windy Arm of Tagish Lake below, and all of the surrounding mountains. There are a lot of deciduous trees here, so this is also a great trail to view the amazing fall colours. To extend this hike, you can connect to the Mountain Hero mountain biking trail, or hike up some of the surrounding ridges. Note: Please avoid hiking this trail from mid-May to mid-June to avoid disturbing the mountain goats during kidding season.
