Mount Spieker

3-4 Hours/6 KM return to Mt. Spieker

Elevation Gain: 330 M (1085 ft)

Rating: Moderate

This route leads past areas of thickly bedded sandstone and conglomerate bedrock, deeply cracked in many places to create small grottos which are suitable for rock scrambling and exploring. There are a number of alpine tarns amongst the rocks.

Routes on flat-topped Mt. Spieker make for excellent hiking through intriguing geological scenery. The summit plateau, and the vertical cliffs which support it, are formed from rocks of the gates formation which were deposited in the Lower Cretaceous Period. Coal seams from this rock formation have allowed for the development of the metallurgical coal resources in the Tumbler Ridge area.

Meet at Tumbler Ridge Visitor Centre at 9:00 AM.
