Mount Fullerton is located south of the headwaters of Nihahi Creek, and north of Shoulder Creek and Mount Remus in Kananankis Country. It has a lower subpeak to the west and southeast. The mountain can be scrambled on the northeast aspect with a long approach up Nihahi Creek. The southeast subpeak can be scrambled directly out of Nihahi Creek but is more difficult than the east aspect. If you want to escape the crowds go up this peak, there are not many people in this area usually. Park at the Little Elbow Recreation Area west of Bragg Creek and take the Little Elbow Trail, then the Nihahi Creek Trail. For more information on ascending this peak consult Alan Kane's Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies (see guidebooks).

Name Notes: Named in 1940 after Ernest Redpath ("Jake") Fullerton who was a member of the Fullerton family that ranched in the Bragg Creek area. He helped his father build a homestead then built his own in 1914 and opened a store and dancehall in Bragg Creek. Further to that he opened the Wetmore and Fullerton Blacksmith Shop on Stepehen Avenue Mall (8th Avenue SW) in Calgary.
