    Trail Descriptions

    Lower Mountain | May 17 - Oct 14

    Bottoms Up

    Intermediate | 2.9km | ~ 1 hr One Way

    Beginning at the south end of the village, Bottoms Up guides hikers to Revelation Lodge through a series of switchbacks, criss-crossing the glades and meadows of the lower mountain. While the trail is an easy grade it does climb, so be prepared!

    Take it Easy

    Intermediate | 2km | ~ 1 hr Loop

    This shorter trail loops from the top of Bottoms Up to partway up the Sunshine ski run, and back down to Revelation Lodge. We recommend hiking the switchbacks up through the forest and taking the ski run back down.

    Upper Mountain | June 22 - Sept 2

    Kill the Banker

    Advanced | 3.7km | ~ 2 hrs One Way

    This trail mirrors Revelstoke's infamous ski run of the same name, with a tough climb through steep and rocky terrain, crossing under the Gondola line and winding through boulder fields. It can be accessed from the Gondola midstation as a climb or the upper Gondola station as a descent. Either way, be prepared and make sure you have plenty of water.

    The Stoke Climb

    Intermediate | 5.3km | ~ 1.5 hrs One Way

    This is a multi-use trail, please watch for bikers.

    The Stoke Climb can be accessed from Cupcake Loop starting at the upper Gondola station. This trail climbs up several switchbacks through subalpine rainforest and above the treeline into the alpine. Catch jaw dropping views of the surrounding peaks and the Columbia River below.

    Subpeak Loop

    Advanced | 1.9km | ~ 45 min Loop

    Subpeak Loop can be accessed from the end of The Stoke Climb Trail. This technical trail takes you along the spine of Mount Mackenzie and to the subpeak, sitting at 2,300 metres above sea level. This loop will provide stunning 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains and the valley below.

    Greely Trail

    Intermediate | 5.8km | ~ 1.75 hrs One Way

    This is a multi-use trail, please watch for bikers.

    Greely Trail can be accessed via The Stoke Climb Trail off of Cupcake Loop which starts at the upper gondola station. This trail winds through subalpine rainforest and eventually brings you to the beautiful Greely Lake, nestled beneath the peak of Mount Mackenzie.

  • Spectacular mountain and valley views are available on the lower mountain, while the upper mountain hosts mile-high views of glaciated peaks.

    Lower Mountain  |  May 17 - Oct 14


    Revelation Lodge

    Try our delicious buffet breakfast on the Revelation Lodge viewing deck, playing host to a panoramic view of the Monashee Mountains and Columbia River.

    Upper Mountain  |  June 22- Sept 2


    Glacier View

    With a short stroll from Mackenzie Outpost, step out onto a viewing deck pointing towards the Monashees. Glaciated plateaus and rugged peaks stand tall amongst the clouds.

    Revelstoke View

    With a short walk through the forest, access a unique aerial view of Revelstoke. From the top of Kill the Banker's imposing cliffs, you'll see our community nestled amongst the mountains we call home.
