Pedley Pass Hike - Windermere, BC

Pedley Pass

Heading up to Pedley Pass some sections are steep, but when you reach the alpine ridges you can wander around to your hearts delight. You can see the Stanford Range in the Rockies and the Kootenay River Valley.

On the way the trail takes you through a section called "bumpy meadows". This is appropriately named as there are hundreds of these "bumps" which are caused by frost heaves.



Pedley Pass is a perfect destination for hikers of all abilities. This is a moderate day hike, taking approximately 3 hours return trip.

  • Turn off Hwy 93/95 onto the Windermere Loop Rd
  • After 3 km turn left & then turn right onto the Westroc Mine Rd
  • Keep on the main road past the old mine site until you reach the trailhead
  • Be very careful driving this road as there are large ore trucks hauling
