The Earl Grey Challenge

3 Days H-Hiking • 2 Overnights

Experience the backcountry for two memorable days and an overnight with our trusted guides. Imagine hiking and experiencing BC’s backcountry without having to haul all the gear on your back.

See Pharaoh Peaks, Mckay falls, as well as the Toby Creek falls on the way to our South Fork Cabin. Visit the famous Earl Grey Pass, and experience amazing views of the Toby Glacier.

I’m curious! Please send me a detailed itinerary of this backcountry adventure.
Hike it!

The horses pack your gear and you are left free to hike with ease! See amazing views of Pharaoh Peaks, Mckay Falls, as well as the Toby Falls while you hike in. This is about a two and a half hour hike, on a relatively flat trail.  The next day will be your hike to the famous Earl Grey Pass! This will be about a 3 hour hike up an incline most of the way (you are in the mountains after all!) From the pass you will see the Toby Glacier that you can hike towards if you choose!

Ride it!

Let the horses do the work and take a ride! See amazing views of Pharaoh Peaks, Mckay Falls, as well as the Toby Falls while you ride about 2 hours to the South Fork cabin. The next day you will ride about 3 hours to the famous Earl Grey Pass! From the pass you will see incredible views of the Toby glacier, and can hike around before heading back to the cabin for dinner.

When you arrive, relax in camp, dip your feet into the glacier waters of the Toby if you’re brave, and then fill up with a top notch dinner!* Let your evening slip away by telling stories around the fire and appreciating the incredible stars out in the backcountry. Hit the hay and sleep the night away in a rustic cabin surrounded by silence.

Wake the next morning ready to hit the trail! This is the day you hike to Earl Grey Pass. It is roughly a 3 hour hike up to the pass, on an incline most of the way (you are in the mountains after all!). Once you make it to the pass be as relaxed or ambitious as you’d like! You can see the Toby Glacier from the pass, you can hike to the glacier as well if you’re up for the challenge! After lunch and some exploration it is time to head back down to the cabin.

Enjoy dinner once we are back in camp and relax in the cabin and play some cards for the evening till you hear your bed calling! Wake and enjoy a big breakfast and a morning around camp to relax, and learn to pack some horses if you’d like a lesson! Just after lunch time we will leave camp and head for home. Hike by the same breath taking views on your way out.
