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!

It's a spectacular walk into thin air over mountain space with a WOW factor of 10/10...what a genius person to have thought up creating this experience...definitely a one off, must do a Rocky Mountain experience

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

We did the Sulphur Skyline hike just last week and it was one of the best hikes we did during our 1 week stay in Jasper. The hike starts from the parking lot of the Miette Hot Springs . Mind you there's 2 or 3 other hikes (shorter ones) available from there too, but Sulphur starts from the parking lot... More

The hike is moderate, steep towards the top. Can be a bit boring in places. However, once you get to the top, the views are simply stunning. You are standing on 1 of the highest mountains in the area and can see as far as the eye see.

I've done this hike 5 times now and while it is moderate difficulty for non-hikers, most hikers would call this an "easy" hike. It is short! 2 1/2hrs to reach a summit since you start at a decent altitude driving up to the mountain to the hot springs where the trailhead is. (Its a 710m ascent according to my GPS... More
