Default Evans Peak / Alouette Mountain

I haven't been able to find that much info yet on continuing after Evans Peak to Alouette Mountain via the east route.

I found a few TRs but the details on the east route were minimal. Anyone got any stats for that?

Last time I eyeballed the route it looked like it almost doubled the distance of the Evans trail and about 250m extra elevation gain, a little less if you only go for Alouette instead of tagging both.

Semper fudge

Ya I reviewed it on OpenStreetMap and it doesn't look too bad. Mainly wondering how technical that area is since this route looks a lot shorter than the other route that is listed on this site.

I'd probably go straight to Alouette and hit up Evans on the way back down.

I asked Alhike the same thing last year and he said its doable but can be bushy and you are almost better off returning to the evans - allouette fork. Good luck. Maybe pm Al.

There are signs at the forks in the trails, and the trails are decent, so if you pay a little attention you should be fine. The OpenStreetMap data should be pretty accurate here.

Great! Thanks for the info! This is exactly what I was hoping to hear.

I really don't mind some bushwhacking, I just haven't done much in terms of more challenging scrambles and wasn't sure if it had any.

Cousin Herb.

Did this hike to Alouette Summit last year; about 10 months ago. Here is a link to my TR to this trip, the pictures should give you a good idea of the conditions, steep trails, boulder field, and a narrow notch gully getting close to the top.

Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............
