Shipyard & Titanic Trail is located just a few
kilometers further up the road from Boulder Gardens Route. Shipyard &
Titanic has several great views, and there is an option to extend the
hike by climbing a small mountain at the end of the trail to explore the
alpine area. Marmots live along this trail, and you are likely to see at
least one of them, as these creatures are very curious, and come out
from their hiding places to see what is going on.
1. In order to get to Shipyard & Titanic
Trail, check out the instructions for getting to
Boulder Gardens Route.
Drive past the Boulder Gardens parking area, continuing up the same
forest service road. Soon, you would
come across a gate, which should be open, unless some dangerous
industrial activity is occurring further on.

have some photos of that trail at the end of this trip report.

and the trail ended. But there was an opportunity to climb a small
mountain just across from this gap. Titanic is on the left, and the yet
unexplored mountain is on the right.
24. So, we went up what we would call Pink
Mountain, due to the colour of its stones. If you
decide to go up Pink Mountain, hiking boots and poles would be highly
recommended, as this path is much steeper than anything up to this
