The Kimta Creek watershed is one of the more scenic areas near Mackenzie. There is a rough trail that brings hikers above treeline, and once you get onto a ridge there, it's possible to see your way clear to the nearby summit. If you really have time, you can explore the adjoining ridges and get pretty far, but be wary of doing this alone - not recommended! firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi IJ, I'm heading up to Mackenzie to visit some friends and was thinking Kimta would be a good hike. How long is the trail till you reach the alpine and is the trail easy enough to follow? As I understand you just park along the FSR at Kimta creek and follow the trail from there? Thanks for any info you can provide.

Good for you...Kimta is a great hike in the Mackenzie area. I did it twice when living in Mackenzie. But that was 11 years ago, and my memory of the path is very sketchy now. Ask the Mackenzie District Forest office in town for a detailed map - they can print one for you. Yes, park next to the FSR. The route is mostly obvious once you're on the path. I think I hit treeline about an hour, maybe more, after starting. Lots of blueberries there, free for the picking! Let me know how it goes, and thanks for asking.

Hey IJ; well I did the hike up to Kimta ridge, just not high enough to get my own picture of the tarn you posted. I did a trip report on Clubtread.com. Here is a link. I posted the gps track on Trailpeak as well. The trail is sure nice now.
Thanks for the info once again.
