A pleasant walk through a valley with mountain scenery and waterfalls before you climb into spectacular views of the Asulkan Glacier and its amazing snowfield. At every turn, this feels like a different hike. You start out in the Columbia forest, then you walk through the Asulkan Valley alongside its brook, with fabulous mountain scenery and waterfalls along the way. You then hike through a subalpine meadow and into the interior subalpine, but not before gaining spectacular views of the Asulkan Glacier (south). From here you journey out along a rocky spine that will lead you to the toe of the glacier and its endless snowfields. Outstanding.
