Mt Prevost – Bings Creek Trail

Mt Prevost – Bings Creek Trail

Map: Mt Prevost Bings Creek Trail

This trail, accessed from Drinkwater Road in Duncan, is a moderately difficult hike to the top of Mt Prevost. Initially, the wide trail ascends gently along the east side of (beautiful) Bings Creek.  After veering away from the creek, the trail narrows and becomes steeper, with a short very steep section (with a fixed rope*) just below the West Summit. Stop at the West Summit, or continue on to the East Summit. Give yourself 3 to 5 hours round trip to do this trail, approximately 9km round trip.

*Dogs may have difficulty with this section.
