A Wilderness Hideaway
Hermit Thrush Cabin is nestled in the subalpine forest at 1,920 m (6,300 ft) above sea level in the mountains overlooking Valemount, BC, Canada. The majesty of the alpine, the pristine air, and the peaceful atmosphere provide the right conditions for returning home refreshed.
The trail to the cabin starts at the owners’ home and leads through the forest for 5.8 km (3.8 miles) in length, with a 885 m (3000 ft) gain in elevation. Leading through silent forests and following a singing creek, the hike typically takes 3 hours.
The seven-sided cabin is situated to take full advantage of the light and view of McKirdy Mt. A screened-in porch provides both a safe shelter for gear and a bug-free zone to enjoy the unparalleled fresh air.
Above the cabin, alpine meadows provide space for hiking, snowshoeing, and skiing. Hiking to the nearby mountain peaks provides unhampered 360° views of surrounding mountain ranges including Mt. Robson.
