    Absolutely incredible hiking in this area. The views from the trail to Parker's Peak were amazing and worth hiking what is noted as one of the most difficult sections of trail in the Selkirks. Take your pick of mountain lakes to camp at with nicely set up sites. Although high usage on weekends, the weekdays were nearly vacant of any other human. The area is pristine and managed well. Even out in the middle of nowhere there were areas marked off as not to be trampled for revegetation! Too many animal tracks to count in this area, but not a matter to worry about if strictly following the rules of no trace backpacking and taking all necessary precautions. Head nets are definitely something to consider, particularly on the north facing side of the mountains since the mosquitos seemed to be in massive swarms.
