Sep 14 2010 (All day)

Distance: 10 km

The more than 800 hectares of pristine old-growth forests within this vast natural area provide a specialized habitat for such species as marten, fisher, woodpeckers and wood warblers. The entire protected area, situated along the Continental Divide and eastern slopes of the Rockies, is a diverse complex of cool, dark lodgepole pine and subalpine fir forests, fast-flowing trout streams, windy alpine meadows, scree slopes, bare ridges, moist herb meadows and undisturbed old spruce-fir forests. Prominent inhabitants are grizzly and black bears, wapiti, moose, and bighorn sheep.

This hike is rated as Moderate-to-Difficult, covering approximately 10 kilometres with an elevation gain of about 400 metres (1300 ft).
