Wycliffe Buttes

The short and easy hike to the Buttes in Wycliffe offers a spectacular view of the BC Rockies to the east and the Purcell Range to the west.

The 2km trail leads to a rocky knoll at 1070 m (3,500 ft.). The elevation gain to the south Butte is 130 m (425 ft.) Speckled with beautiful wildflowers between May & June this is a local MUST-see. 
The subtle grade incline ensures that this view can be enjoyed by anyone with two feet and a heartbeat. (kids too!) Travel upwards by bike, hike, snowshoes or horseback.

There are two different access points for this spectacular view. Both are outlined below.

Drive; On highway #95A between Kimberley and Cranbrook. Turn onto Stirton Road and drive 400 m. There is parking to the left, and the trail follows the powerlines on the opposite side of the road.
