Hornickel Region of the Canadian Rockies just west of Elkford, British Columbia (one of Canada’s highest incorporated communities at an elevation of 1300m or 4265 feet). Both Elkford and Wapiti Mountain are situated just west of the High Rock Range. With its two distinct peaks, Wapiti Mountain is the most discernible mountain seen from Elkford. From town, the two peaks appear to be of similar elevation; however, the north peak is the true summit and is distinctly higher. This is quite obvious once you reach the saddle of the mountain.Show more

The well defined, 4.5 km trail to Hornaday Pass climbs gradually up Norboe Creek, through a mixed forest of predominantly Douglas-fir; lodgepole pine; whitebark fir and trembling aspen. In many places it crosses fine talus slopes and avalanche chutes, which can hold snow into the early summer. Recreationists should be aware of the potential for avalanches at almost anytime of the year. At the pass there is a small cabin, and a rustic campsite, for the use of hikers and horseback riders. The pass is a good place for viewing goats and big horn sheep. Bear sightings are not unusual, so, be prepared. From the pass, skilled route finders can follow an indistinct and intermittent trail north up Brule Creek. For those heading down Brule Creek, the first part of the trail is indistinct. Follow the obvious route, and you will soon come upon a well defined trail, which continues east down Brule Creek to the Elk River valley. This section of the trail is about 9.5 km long.Show more
