We had planned to do Mount Assiniboine as a 53km thru-hike over 6 days with a number of days hikes in between, making the total nearly 130km. In order to do this as a one-way hike, we arranged rides both to start at Sunshine Village and to end at Mount Shark.
Garibaldi Lake Trail and Panorama Ridge
This was our first time up there and while it was beautiful, it was very sad to see how much garbage had been left by people on the trail and lakeside. If you do decide to take the trip up there, please pack out all of your garbage.
Howe Sound Crest Trail
We had actually planned to do the Howe Sound Crest Trail the weekend before and even gotten 5km into it but quit due to an unbelievable amount of bugs. You couldn't even keep your mouth or eyes open without bugs constantly flying into them. There was also still a ton of smoke from forest fires that made breathing difficult.
