Algonquin Peak

A day hike loop to Algonquin Peak for a total of 13 km in 6 hours including 1 hours of rest. The start is from the Heart Lake's parking area. This hike made a stop to a huge boulder just before the Wright Peak's junction.

Other trips:

  • The same hike up to Wright Peak (4580 feet) from the Algonquin/Wright's junction. It's a 0,8 km and hour from the junction.
  • The same hike up to the huge boulder (4020 feet). It's located on the right of the trail before the posted sign about severe conditions above 4000 feet. The recommended access is a path skirting this boulder by its left side. In the back left corner there is a trail that gets to its summit. Attention: Hikers should use care and stay on the actual trail so as to avoid damaging the fragile alpine vegetation. The summit is on bare rocks and offers great views to Wright Peak and Algonquin Peak.
