The lure of the highest peak is always strong. But with the Golden Hinde, the appeal is even greater due to the remoteness. Really more of a committed hiking journey, the trip up Vancouver Island's highest mountain does include terrain where a rope and perhaps an axe or crampons may come into use. Backpacking and scrambling experience are recommended. The walk to and ascent of the Hinde combine to make a magical 8-day traverse on foot of some of the finest mountain wilderness anywhere, from Philips Ridge all the way to the Elk River. And to top it off, the summit of the island as a reward. A must-do for any island mountain enthusiast.
