Route Description for Broome Hut Hike
Hike the semi-exposed trail along Second Creek, culminating at the Broome Hut. This scenic hike is short and sweet, which is ideal for families with small children. Consider packing provisions and having a picnic at the scenic overlook before heading back. When the Broome Hut is open, there are washrooms and a warming hut that is open to the public. If you really want to get the full Broome Hut Hike experience, consider renting out the cabin and spending the night amongst the rocky ridges of the Continental Divide. Whether you head in for the day or for the overnight experience, make sure you pack out.
Begin your excursion up the Broome Hut Trail from the parking lot. From the carpark, the Second Creek Trail will guide you through the woodlands and along the creek’s edge.
