Info from Carlyle Lodge:
The SourDough Trail….A Spectacular , Kootenay Classic . 4 days of hiking along a High elevation , ridgeline, overflowing with wildflowers, camp alongside Alpine lakes for 2 nights, while being surrounded by 5 different mtn ranges. A photographers dream.
NOTE: This trip is best suited for Experienced hikers with a high level of fitness. Experience with “OFF-Trail” hiking and comfort with exposure is required. Some folks say it’s right up there with the “West Coast trial”. A Classic !
What’s so SPECIAL about this hike? All you need is a day pack !! That’s right NO Heavy pack. At both nights camping sites we have located “stash” boxes , supplied with all camping supplies, along with all Non-perishable food and “Beverages”.
Only things you need in your pack(besides a bit of fresh “Grub”), is a sleeping bag, camera, tooth brush, and a change of clothing.
Enjoy your 3rd nights dinner in our Dining room (or on our deck), with unparalleled views of Kokanee Glacier. Enjoy a relaxing Sweat in our Sauna followed by a sweet shower.
Become “Star struck”, by the night sky filled with billions of stars.
Top it off by falling off to Sleep in clean sheets in a large, comfy bed in our spacious lodge.
