We just completed our most rewarding and demanding hike as a family – hiking up to the Asulkan Hut and spending a couple nights. The hike starts in Roger’s Pass near Golden, BC and the trail starts at the ruins of Glacier House – an old stop on the CP railway and the birthplace of Canadian mountaineering and mountain culture.

The hut is perched in a magnificent location, just below glaciers. There are many options for exploring around the hut including glacial waterfalls, Mt. Youngs and the Pterodactyl. The hike took the family (with kids as young as 6) 4 hours to complete the 8km, 900m elevation gain (one way).
