Description

Park at the Illecillewaet parking lot in Rogers pass just off the highway, warm up and make your way to the ruins of the Glacier House hotel. From here go out/back to the top of the Abbott Ridge. Next go out/back on the Asulkan valley trail up to the ACC backcountry ski hut on the way back down the valley turn right and go up the Glacier Crest trail to the top, as you come down off the Crest at the bottom and follow the valley trail down again take another right up the mellower Glacier Crest Trail, when the trail breaks onto the exposed rock scramble up following the Cairns to the ridge line to the right of the Glacier. This 4 trail out/back variation starts & ends at the old Glacier House ruins.   These are beautiful trails that start low in the Valley and make their way up into the high Alpine with beautiful 360 views of the Rocky & Columbia mountains.
