Access

The approach follows approximately the same route in summer and winter. The Asulkan Valley Trail leads from the Illecillewaet Campground, steepening in the later sections to reach the crest of the moraine below the hut.

Please note that Parks Canada removes bridges over stream crossings on this trail each year on October 1st and replaces them each year near the middle of June (dependent upon conditions). Access to the Asulkan Cabin will require a stream crossing during this period. Please check the Glacier National Park Trail Conditions Report website for up to date info on the trail and the state of the bridges.

Access

Little Yoho Valley approach (summer): A pleasant 3 to 4 hour hike with 520 metres (1,700 feet) on well-maintained national park trails beginning at the Takkakaw Falls parking lot.

Iceline Trail (summer): An alternative to the Little Yoho Valley Trail (above). The distance and elevation gain are similar. This trail is often used on the return trip to the parking lot, providing an excellent loop trip with lots of varied terrain.

Little Yoho Valley (winter): The winter approach follows the same trail as in the summer but as the road to Takkakaw Falls is not plowed it is 13 km longer. The approach begins just off the #1 highway, 4 km east of Field, BC.
