“A beautiful winter route for skiers or snowshoers that leads to Keith's Hut and the base of the Joffre Mountain Range.”— Tony Redford
Views along the trail include Joffre Peak, Mount Matier, Vantage Peak Mount Hartzell, Mount Howard, Twin One Glacier, Snowspider Mountain, and the Anniversary Glacier. There are abundant opportunities for adventuring in and around these mountains beyond the hut, and the valley holding Joffre Lakes can even be accessed via backcountry travel from the hut.
Keith's Hut can be accessed in three different ways: a summer route, a winter route, and switching between these two routes based on the conditions of each trail. The winter route has several creek crossings that can be difficult and hazardous as the weather warms. The summer route can be too steep when covered with snow, so is often avoided during the winter. Some users of the trail will switch between the two routes based on conditions and experience.
