Glacier National Park protects, for all time, a portion of the Columbia Mountains Natural Region, in the interior wet belt of British Columbia. The steep, rugged mountains, warm, moist climate and wide variety of plant and animal life are typical of this natural region. The park protects unique stands of old-growth cedar and hemlock and critical habitat for threatened and endangered wildlife species such as the mountain caribou, mountain goat and grizzly bear. Rogers Pass National Historic Site is located in Glacier National Park. Rogers Pass was so designated for its importance in the construction and development of the country's first major national transportation route.

Big and steep! Puts the size of Sir Donald into perspective (you feel small) and we got a nice wind off Vaux Glacier on the way up. Great access from the highway and Illecillawaet Campground.

Great hike with a lot of vertical relief. Some cool terrain with an ending that is unexpected. One of the classic hikes of the Selkirks. Worthwhile!

GEt up close and personal with Sir Donald and Faux Glacier. Feels like you are in the heart of the mountains (you are).

Hard up, but quickly in the alpine.
