Three Sisters Pass Traverse

Three Sisters

The Three Sisters after leaving the Col

September 23 2016

The route up to the Three Sisters Pass is described in this link http://willski.ca/three-sisters-pass/ The rest of the description is from the Col at the Pass down into Hubman Landing via the Highline Trail.

From the Col head down to the left of the Nublet into open meadows. Ehagay Nakoda Range on your left. Carry on into trees and thick bush heading for the dry watercourse. Once in the watercourse follow down through a rocky waterfall. Continue along a rumble of rocks and deadfall. Eventually coming to waypoint Turn out of Creek. Head left out of the creek and up on a feint trail before crossing a gully at the next waypoint. Follow a good track that turns into an old road before joining the Highline Trail. This is not a well worn trail and considerable bushwhacking is needed to forge down onto the Bow Valley.
