Ribbon Creek Winter Trail

The trail is 8.1 km one-way to Ribbon Falls with an additional 2.0 km to Ribbon Lake. The first 8 km of trail is a spectacular valley hike hemmed in by massive cliffs of Mt. Kidd and Mt. Bogart. Ribbon Falls Backcountry Campground is located at the falls. To reach Ribbon Lake and the Ribbon Lake Backcountry Campground from Ribbon Falls, there is a steep hike to a cliff with two chains. The climb up over the cliff is a serious undertaking - likely not be possible if you suffer from vertigo. Climbing down the cliff, especially in wet weather, is even more challenging. Note that bikes are only permitted on the first 4.0 km of this trail.

    Elevation Gain:50 m / 1,137 ft to Ribbon Falls plus additional 594 m / 1,930 ft to Ribbon Lake m
