The Sea to Sky Gondola's flagship backcountry trail

Sweeping, epic views of Howe Sound, Sky Pilot and Mount Habrich itself, this trail weaves through old-growth forest, ancient glacial formations, creeks and waterfalls and offers a half to full-day excursion for those seeking a little more from their hike. Dotted with granite outcroppings, sub-alpine meadows and the picturesque Neverland Lake, Al's Habrich Trail is not to be missed. The marked trail finishes at marker #44 and 'End of Marked Trail' sign at Neverland Lake.

Getting There

From the summit of the Sea to Sky Gondola, the trailhead can be found down the Backcountry Access Road behind the Summit Lodge. Take an uphill left past the water reservoir and follow signage to the start of Al's Habrich Trail.
