Mount Forbes is a remote, heavily glaciated peak, the highest peak located entirely within Banff National Park. Its long approach requires the crossing of two large rivers. With so many other peaks in the region easily accessible by road, Forbes and its surrounding peaks are relatively seldom climbed, but they provide excellent opportunities for serious wilderness adventurers.
