I'd like to do the Rockwall Trail in Kootenay National Park this summer. I'm in good shape, 43 years old. Im comfortable with any pace & could do it in 2 or 3 nights. My usual backpacking buddy bailed on me!
Is there an online webite to see what's available/needed permitwise for the Rockwall trail? I can find lots of trip reports but nothing on what it takes to get there, which sometimes seems like the toughest part Guidance anyone?? Thx
Added May 8: ok, I think I found it- there is no online reservations like Berg, you just call into Kootenay at Radium, 3 months ahead. Correct? From the information I've read re: Grizzly habitat I'm assuming this is one of the areas that a 4 min. might/should apply sometimes or is it a popular enough trail that "being alone" is never going to happen for long? I'm kinda stuck to planning for more popular routes as I have to plan Solo trips. I'll be looking at August if I can work it in this year.
If I could just do a long weekend hike in the area- which trailhead would you suggest starting/ending from and is it difficult to hitch a ride back to the start trailhead
