  • Fees:None
  • Campsites:0
  • Access:Road
  • Facilities:None
  • Site Description:A 7.5km hike to Wolverine Pass, where it intersects the Rockwall Trail in Kootenay National Park.

    For a thorough trail description, visit http://goldenhikes.ca/trail/wolverine-pass/

    This is prime grizzly habitat. Be bear aware and travel in groups.

  • Driving Directions: From Golden drive east on the Trans Canada for 25.7 km and turn right onto the Beaverfoot Forest Service Road (FSR).
    All sign markers on the Beaverfoot FSR take their reading from the bridge over the Kicking Horse River (set your odometer to ?0? on the other side of the bridge).
    Note: new logging roads can be built in any given year; so there may be more junctions than noted below.

    Follow the Beaverfoot FSR to 23.5 km
    23.5 km take left fork.
    31.7km take the left fork and continue past Moose Creek branch to the Wolverine Branch.
    Drive up the Wolverine Branch for 8.7 km (you must track this as there is no 8.7 km sign).
    Along the 8.7km of Wolerine Bransh, take the left branch at the first three Y-junctions until you reach a broad sweeping switchback to the right.
    Do not take the sweeping turn and instead continue straight ahead for about 1 km to a small landing on your right and a trailhead kiosk (40.3 km from the point at which you set your odometer to ?0? ). The trail is located 50m further up, on the opposite side of the road.
    Park here.
