Take the Sir Donald Trail to the junction above Vaux Glacier Creek crossing. Follow the fork to the right through sub alpine forest, leading you to switchbacks across the meadows. You will see Perley Rock, a lower knoll, which is approached from the steep slopes on the left side of the knoll. Take the trail to the summit for great views. The summit is at 2150m. Stay off the glacier unless you have special equipment and appropriate training.
There is GPS data attached to this trail (see "download GPS"), which if loaded into your GPS can help you find route points.
In winter please check the Avaluator

UpsideGreat Views on a very challenging trail. I nice workout
DownsideA little steep. Crossing the snow covered gully near the end is difficult
CommentI did Perley Rock trail in July. Be sure to bring plenty of water at we had troble with water supply after the last river. One of the best trails in the Rodger's Pass

UpsideGorgeous views and an enjoyable though somewhat challenging trail.
DownsidePerhaps not for those nervous of heights.
CommentThe above factors reduce the traffic a little on this trail which would otherwise likely be overrun. Arguably the best of the Glacier Park trails, but those who are acrophobic would be better off trying the Glacier Crest trail on the other side of the glacier. Wait until the snow is gone from the gorge near Perley rock as it could be a bit dicey.
