Default Best 4/5 day hikes in the Rockies

Hi there
I've been browsing these forums for a while for routes in the Vancouver/Sea to Sky area and have had some epic days out.

I have some family visiting from a long way away in August and I want to organise something great in the rockies. So far I've been scheming something around Mnt Assiniboine. I have never been out that way.
Everyone who will be in our group has years of trekking and scrambling experience and it'd be awesome to bag some peaks along the way but we're not looking for anything too far beyond a class 3.

Just thought I'd throw this out there and see if anyone has recommendations. It'd be awesome to be somewhere off the beaten track and not too full of people.

Many thanks!

Define what you mean by "Best". While places like Assiniboine, Rockwall and others have earned their reputations, they are also popular and not as likely to give you the "off the beaten path" experience. Northover Ridge in Kananaksis is a good one, but there are also lots of options in places like the Alberta Wildland Parks, Height of the Rockies, and Elk Lakes PP depending on what you're looking for

Thanks for the reply. By best I mean beautiful trails and views and interesting hikes with some scrambles. I'll look up the places you mentioned.
