Review of Mount Hays

Mount Hays
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 March 2014

an attraction, but it is a nice little drive. If you are a hiker it's probably a nice hike as well. I drove, took in the view, and it certainly gives you another perspective of Prince Rupert, but compared to flying a helicopter over the mountains on the way to Kemano, it is average, but still very nice!

First of all it is a long and difficult walk.Summit of Mount Hays is 732 m / 2402 ft.

We parked our car at the Oldfield Creek hatchery on Wantage Rd and we took the gravel road, on the way (on the left) you can see an old command post dating from the WW2.
It is at least a 10 km walk (4 hours) when you get to the subalpine meadows take sometime to relax and watch the bald eagles.
From the summit of the Mt Hays, if it's a clear day it is possible to see the Queen Charlotte islands and the peaks of Alaska.You also have a great view of the Prince Rupert Harbour, Metlakatla and Dodge Cove.

The city of Prince Rupert should exploit a lot more it's mountain, it is an hidden gem waiting to be polish for the tourists and rediscover by Ruperties.
