Canyon Peak
Description:
Hike with us to the top of Canyon Peak, at the southern edge of the Cabinet Mountains, and experience one of the last remaining wild and unprotected wildlife corridors in the Kootenai region.

The trail ascends steeply from Silver Butte Pass, so make sure to bring your trekking poles! We'll pause for breathers and enjoy the views along the way, following a ridgeline to the top of Canyon Peak. Canyon Peak is in the heart of a key corridor for two disparate grizzly populations, so make sure you bring your bear spray along on this hike. We'll discuss the ecological significance if this area, and what you can do to help protect it. Plan for a full day hike. There are no additional sources of water along the trail, so make sure you bring plenty of water for the day, as well as food and extra layers.

**Meeting time and location will be provided once you sign up.*

This hike is FREE and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. Please bring good hiking shoes, food, water, and clothing adequate to be outside for the weather. Montana Wilderness Association hikes are led by volunteers. Hike leaders will be in touch with the hike group within the week before the hike to finalize details and logistics. Please inform your hike leader if you cannot attend. Children with genuine interest and the ability to hike the full distance are welcome if accompanied by an adult.
