Sunshine Village - Search Nearby - Added by Tara Stamnes

Check out the beautiful larches (especially in fall) on the stunning Healy Pass trail. 

Head up to Healy Pass in late September or early October to check out the beautiful larch trees in their golden glory. Sunshine Meadows, Assiniboine, and other amazing views can be seen from the top of this easy trail. 

Start your adventure in the Sunshine Village ski resort parking lot. Head behind the lodge where the trail sign is. The first half of the hike winds up gradually through the woods until you see your first larches. Head out of the forest (around the 4km mark) and into the pass. Up the hill a bit more and you'll find one of the most mind blowing views of fall. You can continue on the trail to Egypt lakes or stop at the top and turn around.
