Hill features

Mount McGillivray is located back off of the Trans-Canada Highway before you reach “Dead Man’s Flats” just past Heart Mountain. The South and southeast faces are quite imposing with crumbly steep slopes as seen from Heart Mountain. The north and western approaches are more inviting for the scrambler or climber. This large peak is not often climbed. The reason being, first, a very long approach to the base of the ridge (4 hours from the Trans-Canada) second, you must ascend this ridge which requires good route finding (1 hour at least). Lastly a hour and half-long ridge walk to reach the actual summit and return the same way. In best conditions it is a 12-hour day.
