While it’s a trek to get up there—you can find solace at this halfway point with its 360-degree mountaintop lookout point.
Overlooking the rugged mountains and deep valley’s that make up the pristine Powell River—this hidden gem needs to be on your bucket list.
Depending on the time of year, you can access the hut by hiking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.
Hello Everyone! Welcome to the @allaboutadventures Instagram takeover! The All About Adventures team will be sharing some of our favourite moments from the epic trip we recently did to the Sunshine Coast. We are going to start the takeover off with @braybraywoowoo’s image of the magical Tin Hat Hut. The Tin Hat Hut is one of the many huts that make up the Sunshine Coast Trail. The All About Adventures team hiked up to the hut with their overnight gear and spent the night in the mountains! The roads were extremely snowed in at the time so we would like to give a huge shout out to @b.c.sunshinecoastshuttle for giving us a ride to the trailhead. #SunshineCoastBC #AllAboutAdventures . . Reminder: backcountry explorers should always be prepared with proper gear and training, including avalanche safety. Use @bc_adventuresmart as a resource for more info!
