Bugaboo Alpine Trek

Bugaboo Alpine Trek, The Hounds Tooth Spire

Bugaboo Alpine Trek has been popular, we start our day with driving out to Bugaboo Provincial Park, about 2.5 hours from Banff, 2 hours from Golden.

Then we hike the alpine trail up to the Kain hut, the trail is great fun with a ladder and some easy climbing along the way including spectacular glacier views. About 2 hours up to the hut.

We have a rest at the Kain Hut then head up into the alpine cirque to view the Bugaboo, Snowpatch, Eastpost and Crescent Spires, about one hour hike up on the alpine trail.

After lunch we head back down the same way as we came up, about 2.5-3 hours to the car and all down hill. This makes for a great full day out, some guests make it a two day trip and spend the night at the Kain Hut

For this trip hiking boots or approach shoes are fine and hiking poles will help. Rain gear, a warm layer, lunch and water, sun cream, camera and a day pack are all you really need.
