The trail starts by climbing through dense forest, passing over a cliff band, and following a small stream to the north flank of Bastille Mountain. At this 1/2 way point, the trail travels over several rock bands, through open larch stands towards the pass. The cabin is 500m north of the pass. The trail is managed by the Summit Trail Maker's Society. The cabin is managed by the Columbia Valley Hut Society. Prepaid reservations required for cabin use. www.cvhsinfo.org There are impressive views of the glaciated peaks of Mount MacBeth and Mount Lady MacBeth, Cauldron, Truce and Covenant Mountains. There are also small rolling meadows and tiny alpine lakes. There are two ridge systems close to the pass that offer good day hikes.
