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.

The Hut Experience

Staying in a backcountry hut is a shared, rustic experience. Sleeping, kitchen and living areas are communal, and foam mattresses, cooking and eating utensils are provided. Guests are expected to bring their own sleeping bags, food and personal items.

All of our huts are user-maintained, meaning that the custodial work of keeping the hut clean, chopping firewood and shovelling snow is done by the guests. The ACC provides major service and renovations to all of our huts each year to ensure they are in good repair.
