Written by Dow WilliamsMount Chester belongs to the long Kananaskis Range located just north of Kananaskis Lakes in the center of Kananaskis Country, a provincial park which encompasses over 4,000 square kilometers of foothills and mountains bordering Banff National Park in the central Canadian Rockies. Mount Chester shares the range with many other climbs including: Gusty Peak, Mount Engadine, The Fortress, Mount Galatea and Mount Lawson.Mount Chester is one of the more common scrambling objectives in Kananaskis Provincial Park due in part to Chester Lake being one of the more popular day hike destinations. Mount Chester was named after a WW I battleship which is common for peaks in this section of Kananaskis. It is an easy scramble by Canadian Rocky standards. The only published route is the scramble route. The same access, Chester Lake Trail, can be used to access a variety of scrambles including The Fortress, Mount Galatea and Gusty Peak. Directly across Spray Lakes Road is the common Burstall Pass Trail with access to Mount Murray and Mount Burstall. The views are far reaching in this section of Kananaskis. Directly southwest you have uninterrupted views of Mount Sir Douglas.Getting There From the Canmore Nordic Center, drive 40kms+/- south on the Spray Lakes/Smith Dorrien Road (gravel). Turn left at a sign for the Chester Lake day use parking lot. You are almost guaranteed mountain sheep on the Spray Lakes Road and if you are lucky a moose or two. I witnessed a moose and her calf cross the road about 3kms past Goat Creek Trail. I saw this same female without a calf two years prior. Watch for hazardous rock fall on the switchbacks above Canmore. At times this road will be closed due to rock and/or mud slides. There are restrooms at the Chester Lake day use parking lot.Red Tape There are no permit requirements to enter, climb and/or park in Kananaskis Provincial Park. This is active grizzly country however. Take bear spray. There have been numerous 2005 trail closures in Kananaskis due to mountain lions and grizzlies. Therefore it would be prudent to check recent notices posted on the park’s website. The park headquarters is actually located on Highway 40 (Kananaskis Trail).When To Climb As with most climbs in the Canadian Rockies, the driest time is from June through September. I scrambled Mount Chester in September and the route was mostly dry. There are no published backcountry ski routes on Mount Chester.Camping Kananaskis officials have closed all camping at Chester Lake. The closest camping is located back at the north end of Spray Lakes Reservoir across the dam at random campsites marked on the west shore of the lake. You cannot camp outside of the marked specific camping areas in Kananaskis. Refer to the Kananaskis Provincial Park website for more information regarding camping and/or lodging. A premium accommodation is the Engadine Lodge (back at Mount Shark road) which is only several kilometers north.Mountain Conditions The Kananaskis Provincial Park website is a very thorough park website, including trail conditions or closures, wildlife notices, weather conditions, avalanche conditions, camping permits, whitewater conditions, etc. It is an excellent source if you are going to spend any time here and comparable to any National Park website I have used. Outside of the parks web site, Canadian Avalanche Association is also useful, particularly for winter travel. Canadian Alpine Accident Reports is also extremely relevant. (One of the most positive accident reports of all time)
