Tucked away in the Waputik Range, part of the Canadian Rockies, the short mountain road to the summit is totally paved. At the summit there’s a parking lot. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. It is not generally snow-free until late June or even July in some years.

Located within the Banff National Park the road to the summit is 1.1km (0.68 miles) long starting from the paved Icefields Parkway (also known as Highway 93 north), the highest road in Canada’s national parks. The drive tops out at 2.110m (6,922ft) above the sea level.
