Considered by many to be the best multi-day trek in the Canadian Rockies, the Sunshine to Mt. Assiniboine trail takes some planning but is a suitable trip for families. Alpine meadows, lakes, mountains, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and elk are just some of the sights on this hike. Traversing two provinces (from Alberta to British Columbia), this trek has you dealing with three organizations for passes, etc. Despite the paperwork, associated fees and pesky insects and bothersome bears (no joke), it's still one of the most popular treks - even on a worldwide scale. This hike takes about 5 days.
@PatrickBixler Me too!!! Such a great place.
I did this hike a few years back!! It definitely was annoying to get everything set up but I went with a friend who had done this thru hike before, so it ended up being a really great time.
Love it
@happyrock This is very high on my to-do list. Glad you had a good time!
