Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park
Noted for its spectacular hiking, Mount Assiniboine stands at 3,618 metres in this 38,600 hectare park bearing its name. The park is roughly a triangular shape which borders partially on the boundaries of Banff National Park and Kootenay National Park.

The jagged peaks, shimmering lakes, glistening glaciers and sun- dappled alpine meadows make this wilderness scenery some of the most stunning in the Canadian Rockies. Vegetation consists of spruce, alpine fir, and lodgepole pine as well as patches of false azalea, buffalo berries, twinberries and white rhododendrons amongst many other spectacular species of flora. Hundreds of species of wildflowers are found here during mid- summer. Animals including the elk, black and grizzly bear, mule deer, moose, mountain goats, squirrels and chipmunks, marten and mink and coyote are found here as well as ninety-three species of birds.

Camping - On the bench above the west side of Lake Magog is the main camping area. A group camping area is provided. Camping is also located at the north end of Og Lake. Water is provided by nearby springs and small streams. Located on the south side of Magog Creek are four alpine cabin shelters, known as the Naiset Cabins. A climbing shelter is located in the Assiniboine Bowl and other cabins are found in various locations. Campfires are not permitted throughout the core area of the park. Primus-type stoves must be used for cooking.

Lake MagogFishing & Boating - Angling in the lakes and waterways of this park can be rewarding but is unpredictable and often different lakes are closed for fishing.

Hiking & Trails - Numerous trails wind their way through the park. They vary in difficulty and length, some being short, easy day hikes and others long, difficult overnight trips. During the winter months, skiing in and out of the park on either tele-mark skis or alpine touring equipment is a popular way to see the area.

Other activities - Horses are allowed in the park with a permit on specified trails. Mountain bikes are allowed on the Assiniboine Pass Trail in the park only.

Near Lake Magog is the Mount Assiniboine Lodge.
