When one imagines an awesome alpine hike, the Sulphur Skyline Trail will probably meet your expectations. A challenging 4km trail (one way) from forest to sub alpine to rocky alpine terrain. You gain 700m in elevation and the whole trail is lined with beautiful wild flowers that slowly change the higher you get. At the top is a wonderful alpine... More

A friend and I hiked to the summit of the Sulphur Skyline trail in early June. There was one small snow patch, otherwise the trail was dry and in excellent condition. We were glad that we brought hiking poles as the trail can be a bit steep in sections, but they are not a "must have". The views are spectacular... More

A long uphill hike that takes you above the tree line to a steep climb to the top. An amazing 365 degree view of the mountains surrounding you when your reach the top. It took us 3 hours round trip. We hiked during the last weekend in May and there was still some snow, but just in patches. Extremely well-marked... More

This hike is a true adventure, You park right beside a hot spring facility, make your way up the valley until you hit the tree line, Conquer the hardest part of the hike (the Crux) get to the top of the mountain and low and behold. A spectacular natural Rocky Mountain picturesque view! Trundle back down and jump in that... More

This is a big ascent but it's definitely worth the view. the final 1/2 mile is a little scramble but there were people of all ages and abilities up there so don't be put off! You feel like you're on the top of the world when you get up there!

Very nice hike, unfortunately the skies where not clear when we reached the top, but views were excellent anyway. We also experienced very strong wind. Expect to do most of the walk in the forest/woods before you reach the tree line. We did this trek in approximately 2,5 hours return, and there is a possibility for swimming in the hot... More

We are relatively experienced hikers and made it to the top in 1.5 hrs and down in about 45 min. We saw families with small children and even babies carried in backpacks, but be careful, the last part is extremely steep with loose footing. The views from the top are beautiful. For such a relatively short hike, this was really... More

The owner of the place we stayed told us about this place and also said that it was about 1.5 hours up and a half hour down. We definitely agreed with her that it was a great hike but the time was not accurate (at least for us). The sign at the start of the trail said 4-5 hours and... More

Took the skyline up to the lookout and then took the short hike up to the weather station. Spectacular views . Well worth it. Then had lunch upstairs at the restaurant and enjoyed more great food and scenery
