Healy Pass / Larch Tree Hike / Sunshine Village



Description:
  This is an easy hike with nothing technical and slow and steady elevation gain.  It's an official Parks Canada Trail, so it is well maintained and easy to keep track.  The only difficulty for some, may be the distance.  It is a wonderful hike with rewarding views of many lakes and peaks surrounding the pass and the larch trees in their glorious colors.
