Autumn Explorers Getaway

Explore & Hike 

Here’s where you get up close with the colours, and where nature brings you a little closer to yourself. Set your own pace across 24 trails covering 30 km of incredible Escarpment scenery. An Explore All Day Pass gives you unlimited access to the Open Air Gondola which takes you 720 vertical feet to the top, making it easy to access your route from the top or the bottom. A favourite route is up Cascade across the top and down through Village Way. About an hour to an hour and a half trek.
