Participant Information

We will take the trail from Lightning Lakes and camp at Frosty Creek Camp. There is a small stream here.  There is no water source higher on the ridge. There is likely no bear cache, so be prepared to hang food or bring bear proof container.

Next Day head up to Frosty Mtn.  The peak has two summits: the lower east summit (7900') and less than 1 km away and a loose, steep climb, the higher west summit (7950'). 

 

I will be bringing my dog.

  • Frosty Mountain wilderness camp is at the 1850 m elevation on the Frosty Mountain Trail. The hike to the camp is a strenuous 7 km from the Lightning Lake Day Use area. This 2 or 3 tent camp consists of pit toilet, fire ring and a shelter. During inclement weather this could be a welcome sight but come prepared as it may already be in use. A small creek runs through the campsite; when moving on be sure to fill your water bottles here. Approximately .5 km further along the trail the larch grove starts and continues on for about 1.5 km. and 5 km from camp brings you to the peak of Frosty Mountain.
  • Backcountry camping fee is $5.00/person/night and applies to everyone 6 years of age and older for all locations within E.C. Manning Provincial Park.
  • Payment can be made online prior to your arrival, through Discover Camping’s Backcountry Registration System, or, at the Manning Park Visitor Centre, or the Manning Park Lodge and/or the Lightning Lake gate house; payments are cash or travellers cheques only. An ATM is located at Manning Park Resort on Highway #3.
