Our Notes

Shorty Peak is about a 3 mile, fairly moderate, hike in. The lookout is in really wonderful shape, you can tell it has been cared for by all those that has stayed here.

The views of the Selkirk mountains is pretty spectacular! And we were lucky enough during our visit to have a bear grass bloom – it makes a gorgeous landscape even more beautiful.
