WALKING ON THE MOUNTAIN

The trails at Mount Owls Head are natural. There is therefore the presence of rocks, roots, etc. A good pair of shoes or hiking boots can make all the difference between a cake walk and hours of martyrdom. Make sure to wear proper footwear when hiking in the mountains. Boots and hiking shoes with crampons are recommended. Also plan to wear appropriate clothing for the mountain (coat and windbreaker).

IMPORTANT
Dogs and other pets are not allowed in the chairlift. Dogs are allowed in the mountains, they just have to be kept on a leash at all times.

ACCOMODATIONS

Mtn Haus Hotel

Enjoy staying one night or more with us at the Mtn Haus Hotel directly at the base of the mountain. We have several packages available with or without meals.
