The Golden Ears emergency shelter is a shelter located on Golden Ears Mountain in Golden Ears Provincial Park, near Maple Ridge BC. It is accessed by the Golden Ears trail. A sign on the hut indicates that it is to be used in emergency situations only.

Facilities

The hut sleeps 6-8 (estimate only) and does not appear to be have any equipment inside. Water is available close-by; the running stream has been observed exposed on July 1. There is no outhouse.

Location

The hut is located on a ridge some 300m below the North Ears peak. The trail leading to the hut is still snow-covered for several kilometers (observed July 1). To reach the peak from the hut one must cross a permanent snowfield. The area surrounding the hut is quite level and could be suitable for tenting.
