Mt. Brennan is a challenging and rewarding hike. The peak requires no technical skill beyond putting one foot in front of the other. Just be prepared to do that for 8.6 kilometres to the peak. The few is worth it.

Directions:

Drive 23.3km west of Kaslo on Highway 31. Turn north onto the forest service road there. Zero your odometer. At 2.4km stay left. At 7km park at a sharp switchback.







Hopefully there will be flagging tape there.

You'll likely meet very few people on a weekday. Downside The entire climb is pretty much exposed so don't go on a hot day and try to go early because it's a steep slog and you'll melt. I wouldn't recommend it as an overnight simply because the cirque of high peaks means the sunlight disappears early and comes late to the camp area. There is really only Mt. Brennan to tag anyhow - the other peaks are too shear and steep to explore. Comment In case the signs or flagging are covered, go left (downhill) at the first logging road you hit after the parking area, then climb a newly-placed ladder to the trail just across the bridge.
Go right (uphill) at the second logging road you hit - this will take you to the original trailhead.
