Photos: Hiking Three Brothers Mountain in Manning Provincial Park
As far as day hikes go, Three Brothers Mountain has it all: rocky ridges and summits, subalpine meadows with colourful wildflowers, and sweet views of the Cascade Range.
That's why it's easily one of the best hikes in southwestern British Columbia, right up there with the likes of Black Tusk.
You'll find this paradise in E.C. Manning Provincial Park, whose Lightning Lake campground offers an ideal base for this trip.
From the start of the Heather Trail at Blackwall Peak, hiking to 2,272-metre-high First Brother Mountain, the closest peak of the Three Brothers, involves a round trip of around six hours.
