Description
Waypoints (0)

Alouette Mountain is a hidden gem located in Golden Ears Provincial Park. The views from the top are outstanding. The trail itself is varied - some loose rocky areas, tree roots, steep areas, also some fairly flat logging paths. There is definitely a lot of uphill, but it's not all steep.

Snowshoeing

Decent hike/snowshoe for a wet cloudy winter day when looking for exercise. Fair bit of snow that caused a turn around after 2.5 hours upon reaching a stream with 2+ meter snow drifts on each side

Trail is well maintained. The fist 7kms is pretty steady incline. Once past the 6km mark, snow on trails and would need snowshoes. Last 2 kms elevation is steep, so be prepared and bring snacks and liquids. Views at top are spectacular.

HikingMuddyOver grown

If you haven’t done many awesome hikes , if you love forests and walking in dense forests for hours without a view, if you don’t mind mud, then this is the hike for you! I’ll give it 2 stars out of respect for nature but this isn’t worth driving all the way from Vancouver. Unfortunately, on October 14 ,2020 it was foggy, cold, and we didn’t get a view. The trail was muddy, lots roots. My Apple Watch indicated around 22 km return. 3:30 up at a slowish pace, less time down.

This hike is a series of several different trails, generally moderate, some flat sections on FSRs. Very nice views at the summit.

HikingRocky

Took 8 hours round trip with a few breaks. Tough incline at the start, then levels out, then inclines again, not too bad though. The hard part is the distance. Not sure what other reviewers mean, seemed well marked to me. No views today due to clouds, but Beautiful Lake was nice and seeing the survey cairn at the top was neat (originally erected in 1921 and restored by my Scout Group in 2000). No bugs. Suggest taking plenty of water. Some around but will need to filter. Good luck... give it a go!

Beautiful, bug free hike. Cloudy start. Waited at the summit and Blanchard Peak revealed itself slowly through the clouds. Within the next half hour the clouds lowered just beneath us which gave us spectacular views with various peaks visible above the clouds.

Coming down incline was rough. Rolled my ankle a couple times.

HikingBugsGreat!Off trailOver grownRocky

The incline trail was a little bit tough carrying our heavy backpacks. Then it went from an incline to completely flat for a few km. Then back to bumpy incline climbing. Need good shoes to step over the multitude of rocks and tree branches. As mentioned below the trail wasn’t marked out very nicely and I had to nudge my boyfriend several times to find out where we were. Most of the trail is in the forest with a few times there being a clearing where you can actually see the sky. I wasn’t a fan of this trail as much. But if you enjoy having that feeling of being lost in the forest props to you. Make sure you take bug spray and wear proper shoes because it’s really bumpy with the rocks and branches. Be prepared to go up some steep hills and remember to have fun!

HikingOff trailRocky

I went with the shorter route by heading up the Evans Peak trail from the West Canyon trail to avoid the longer distance. It’s a lot of elevation in a short period of time (about 5km up). The climb up was fun, but peak and surrounding views were covered in clouds, unfortunately. The climb down was not fun at all and I did slip a few times on rocky and woody areas since it had rained the night before. In hindsight, I would likely plan to come down the longer route towards Mike Lake if I tried this again. No real bug issue for me with some bug spray. Be safe and vigilant. The markers going up the Evans trail are no longer obvious as many of the trees they’re on have fallen. It’s easy to accidentally go off trail.

HikingGreat!

No bugs; awesome. Couple people up and down the trail which is reassuring. We got this done in 5 hours with a couple stops up and a nice hang at the top. Views are great. Bring lots of water and an extra meal. This is a good hike for those that want to increase their KM without the intense incline. Get ready for the push at the last 3km to the top.

HikingBugsGreat!

Honestly this trail is kind of a hidden gem! Everyone talks about doing Golden Ears, but we saw less than 10 groups of people during our entire trip overnight on Alouette Mountain! We stayed the night up there and were all alone. So many great spots for camping! The weather was pretty bad for us, but it was still an amazing time! Trail was pretty difficult with overnight packs on - took about 6 hours up and 5 hours down while taking LOTS of breaks. Totally worth it though!

It was a fun hike! Enjoyed going through the trails and it wasn’t crazy hard, we got up just over 2hrs. My dog had a blast & I would do this again!
