Hermit trail access is very simple, just past (2km) the visitor center at Roger's pass (going Eastbound), you will see a well marked parking area, trail map, and trail access (see pics below). This trail is within the Glacier National Park in B.C. You get there by taking the trans-Canada Highway, and, you'll see this trailhead on the left when approaching from the East.

It's not an easy trail though, as it's steep, at a 27% grade. The Hermit meadows are a great destination, and the views incredible. You'll climb from 4200 ft at the parking lot to over 7500 feet in 2.8km. Make sure you are fit. Once in the meadows, many climbers, camp, and then plan ascents to 'Hermit' at 10,200 feet. There are many other hikes in the Glacier National Park, and we'll cover/GPS a few of these for you shortly.

Notice trail #2 marked in the trail map picture above, another option for you at Roger's Pass.

In winter please check the Avaluator (Online Trip Planner) rating is: Challenging.

The trail is slippery in spots but overall in pretty good condition. Downside At the end of the switchbacks there was still alot of snow on the trail and it gets more vertical. For safety reasons we headed back down. Comment All in all an excellent day trip.
