The 2,200 meter high mountain peak with the old fire watchtower, is a popular vantage point. The 360 ° panoramic view of the Slocan Lake and the surrounding mountains is spectacular. The alpine meadows are beautiful. From the ghost town of Sandon from a 12 km long dirt road leads to a high-level parking. From there leads a first 5-km-long tightrope walk up through beautiful meadows of alpine flowers, to the summit. We recommend this for a road vehicle with high ground clearance, or even four-wheel-drive. This also applies to many other high alpine hikes in the area.
We will advise you when planning your excursions and hikes.
We, Karin and Bruno Mayor emigrated from Switzerland to Canada and live for over 20 years on this property.
We have made our dream come true and are drawn from the largest city in Switzerland to the smallest village in British Columbia.
