Mount Terry Fox
How do I get to Mount Terry Fox? This isn’t an exact campsite so much as an invitation to explore the horseshoe-shaped ridge connecting Mount McKirdy to Mount Terry Fox, above the town of Valemount (near Jasper, Alberta).
Why Go: Either taxi shuttle to the trailhead or save a day and splurge on a heli-lift to the alpine. For the former, a good trail leads to the alpine, where established paths and campsites are left behind with the trees. The route rarely dips into the trees again until it joins the trail down Mount Terry Fox. In between is a string of interconnecting ridgelines—and perfect alpine tarn campsites—slicing into the Canadian Rockies with views across the huge Robson Valley at the glaciated Cariboo Mountains and east towards the craggy summits lining the Continental Divide.
Highlight: The view of Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Rockies, dominates to the north. Admire its 4,000-metre south face from a dozen different angles.
