Low Mountain doesn't get many visitors who prefer a visible trail. Most hikers start at the Denny Creek trailhead and head to Melakwa Lake or nearby waterfalls. But if you're in it for the scramble, the rewards are a nice hike in the wintertime.

The scramble starts just after the Denny Creek crossing. Heading up to the basin, the way is relatively clear, but the elevation gain kicks in on your way to the upper meadows. Once on the ridge, the trail becomes easier to follow all the way to the summit.

Be careful at the top, it can be very windy, and cornices of snow are always a danger.
