Barn Mountain from the West (Telephoto)
Located southeast of Pert Peak, southwest of Mount Saint Maur, and directly north of Frying Pan Creek in the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy.

It was named by Dr. Rusor because of the shape, and the name was adopted on October 7 1954. The mountain has lakes beneath its northeast, southeast, and northwest aspects. The head of the valley of Frying Pan Creek just to the southwest of the mountain is a gorgeous Alpine setting with many small lakes. A camping trip up here with an ascent of Barn mountain would be a great trip.

The best approach would be to use the trail up Findlay Creek. To access the trail use the Findlay Creek Forest Service Road which starts at the community of Canal Flats south of Invermere. This road also serves as the approach to Whitetail Lake.
