The Black Tusk Trail begins at Taylor meadows and ascends to the summit climb of the Black Tusk. It is a BC Parks Grade and maintained Trail.
How to Find: To get to the point where the Black Tusk trail starts, you first have to hike up the Rubble Creek Trail for 6 km, then at the fork, turn onto the Taylor Meadows trail, and continue up past the campground and into the alpine. Here you will find the start of the Black Tusk Trail. (Most people stay at the campground the first day, and then hike up Black tusk the second day.)
Trail Description: The trodden trail climbs up through scree on a beaten path, then reaches the solid rock of Black Tusk. At the start of the final climb of Black Tusk is a short 20 meter chimney with marked handholds. It looks fairly fearsome, however the handholds are very good, like steps, such that it is very rare that adults uses a rope. Parties with children often carry a short rope. Once above the chimney, it is a walk to the broad area which is the normal summit. Just to the north of the normal summit is a steep rock spire which is a little bit higher, but almost never climbed.
