Edith Cavell. Accommodation for 32 in two sleeping cabins is offered. This hostel makes the perfect home base when hiking the back-country.

It is important to note that in the winter (Oct to May) the road up to the hostel is closed and guests will be required to hike, ski, or snowshoe up to the hostel from the highway which is approximately 11 km (7 mi).
