Mount Paul/Mt. Peter Notes
- You will need a permit from the KIB office to hike Mt. Paul. They may or may not give you one. You may also be asked to sign a waiver. Probably you wont’ get permission. Alternately, you can quietly climb the hill, leaving no trace and taking nothing but photos.
- The north route is the easier, especially when you take the Paul Creek trail entrance. Follow the double track up on the plateau, then angle southwest to the viewpoint.
- The south ridge is on a loose surface, is quite steep, and not a great route in wet conditions. It is a quick 60 minute hike up from Sun Rivers, but a more difficult downhill route because of the surface. It is a bit of a scramble, but not suited to children or the timid. Bring a hiking pole.
- The route up Mt. Peter starts at the northeast corner of the Mt. Paul plateau. It angles steeply up to the peak. A calf-burner, but worth the climb.
- The ridge beyond Mt. Peter runs for many kilometers, but there is no good route from Mt. Peter. It is better to approach the ridge from the lower benchland to the northeast of Mt. Peter.
- A nice route over Mt. Paul is to go up one side and down the other, especially if you can arrange a pick-up on the other side.
