Paget Peak is a 7 mile out and back trail located near Columbia-Shuswap, BC that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from June until September.
This hike starts off on the same trail as Sherbooke Lake, but splits to the right towards Paget Lookout & Peak. Some long switchbacks till we get to the lookout, and then a scramble to the peak.
Excellent trail, views
A mixture of rain, sun, snow and heavy winds was in store for us when my freinds and I tried this " easy scramble". It was indeed an easy swtich back up to the Lookout, a cabin built in 1944! From there, however, steep slopes with screes covered by thin snow were quite challenging to negotiate. We had planned to do the extention after reaching the peak, but it was too cold up there to continue. Luckily, on the way down, the sky cleared up from time to time and I was able to snap some great shots. Overall, a very pleasant little scramble route with incredible views.
