WHERE THE NORTH SASKATCHEWAN RIVER MEETS ABRAHAM LAKE

The short hike up Flag Hill above Preacher’s Point takes you to some nice views of Abraham Lake and the Kootenay Plains.

It’s a quick hike but there’s no reason not to bring a book along and linger for a while to enjoy the views.

THE TRAIL GUIDE

FLAG HILL ACCESS | 0.8 KM

  • 0.1 km | Look for a faint trail next to an old streambed
  • 0.3 km | Base of the hill
  • 0.8 km | Top of Flag Hill

FLAG HILL RETURN TRAIL | 0.8 KM

  • Retrace your steps back to the trailhead

THE JOURNEY

From the old access where you parked, walk up along the edge of the forest along the road until you come across a dry creek bed and find a faint path. From there, make your way to the base of the ridge straight ahead. At the bottom of the ridge the trail becomes obvious, making it’s way up the hill to the makeshift flagpole.

THE RETURN TRAIL

Head back to the trailhead following the same route as you did on the way up.
