2014 HBC Backpacking Trip
As BC historian Harley Hatfield once said, “History should be learned through the soles of our feet.” On this 3-day backpacking adventure, we truly were walking in the footsteps of history, experiencing the Hudson’s Bay Company “Brigade” Trail just as the fur traders did.

Fur trade historians accompanied us, sharing their knowledge of the people and events revealing the vibrant life of this historic route.

Since 2009, Hope Mountain Centre has worked with many people and groups to restore the trail. We’re excited to show the many improvements we’ve made to the trail and the new overnight camps constructed!
