Location and Maps

Please note: Any maps listed are for information only – they may not represent legal boundaries and should not be used for navigation. Sleeping Beauty Mountain Park is located northwest of the City of Terrace. To get there, drive west on Highway 16 until you cross the Kitsumkalum River at the city limits. Turn north at the Tempo Gas Station onto the West Kalum Forest Service Road (FSR) follow this road for approximately 9 km before turning left on the Erlandsen FSR where there are signs for Sleeping Beauty Mountain Park. Follow the Erlandsen FSR for approximately 5 km staying on the main branch – there are signs at each junction for Sleeping Beauty Mountain, follow these.

It is highly recommended to park at the information shelter for Sleeping Beauty Mountain and walk up the last 1.5 km of access road – it is very narrow and overgrown. A well marked, good trail leaves the access road at the trailhead and climbs steeply through second growth before levelling off quickly and switch backing up through the old growth forest and into the subalpine.

Activities Available at this Park



Total trail length is 6km. The first section provides moderately difficult hiking through a mature hemlock/fir forest and sub alpine meadow. From the meadow, the trail follows an unmarked ridge through a series of peaks which eventually leads to the top of Sleeping Beauty Mountain. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
