This short hike takes you up moraines to the little lake at the toe of Anniversary Glacier. It is a spectacular location, with the ridges and faces of Mounts Joffre and Matier soaring more than 1000 m (3280 ft) above. A well-maintained hut stands nearby; it was built in memory of Keith Flavelle who died on the east ridge of Mount Logan in 1986. Unless you intend to overnight in the hut, which is open to the public, the glacier is a good objective. This trail is one of the most well used in the area, summer and winter. However, do not be deluded by the short distance and minimal elevation gain: the trail is full of rooty sections and mud holes, which do not make for fast travel.
