Some friends and I are looking to do a long, challenging route in Summer / Fall 2021.
We've done the WCT and the North Coast Trail seems like it's getting a bit popular as well.
Ideally this route would have some kind of "pilgrimage" or destination element to it, including a place where we could take a rest day and spend some time, like a lake or a mountain.
Any suggestions? Ideal if it could be reached from either Vancouver or Calgary within 4 hours drive.
Berg Lake to Kakwa Lake on the Great Divide Trail? Epic trip (not by me) reported on ClubTread in 2018.
