Other Information

Mountain enthusiasts will enjoy watching Mount Geikie and Barbican Peak during the drive from Mount Robson to Jasper National Park. From just west of Moose Lake, if the conditions are good, Mount Geikie, with Barbican Peak to its right, loom 11 kilometres beyond Mount Rockingham. Mount Geikie is an impressive 750 metres (2500 feet) higher with steep cliffs on both sides. For the next 25 km or so as one approaches Mount Rockingham, the distant peaks appear to slowly descend behind the nearer mountain.
