Castle Mountain has caught the imagination of Bow Valley visitors since way back. Although, it looks steep from the Trans-Canada Highway or Bow Valley Parkway, it is easily ascended from the back side. And the approach is a pleasant and popular hike. Just follow the trail for 8.4 km to Rockbound Lake, passing Tower Lake on the way.

Stuart Knob is just a little pointy peak flanked by huge talus slopes behind Castle Mountain. Lying 1.5 km northwest of Rockbound Lake, it is easily ascended by rubble slopes beyond the grassy terrace above the lake. Allow a minimum of 2.0 to 3.0 hours from the lake.
