A stunning seven-day traverse of the dramatic eastern edge of the mountains of Strathcona Park. Once we leave the forest in Paradise Meadows to head into the alpine, we barely touch tree-line again for the entire trip. To the west lie the mountains of Strathcona Park, and to the east, the ocean and the Coast Mountains. This is an arduous and very rewarding trip for fit people with a sense of adventure.
