Sale Mountain Hiking Trail

Rating: 4 stars.

Use: Hiking.

Difficulty: Moderate.

Distance: 5 km return.

Description: A great hike with an easy drive-to-alpine approach. Not to be confused with the Sale Mountain downhill bike trail. A traverse from Sale Mountain to Mount Revelstoke via the West Woolsey Cabin is a highly recommended trip. Refer to the traverse in the Mount Revelstoke National Park Traverse Route section.

Directions: Drive north from Revelstoke on Highway 23. Go past the Martha Creek Provincial Park Campground. Turn right onto the Sale FSR. From here  it is a 14.8 km drive to the trailhead. If you go all the way to the microwave tower, you have gone too far. The trailhead is at the last switchback.

Trailhead GPS:

  1. Sale FSR: N51 10.788 W118 12.026
  2. Sale Hike trailhead: N51 09.811 W118 08.250
