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

Not too hard of a hike if you do regularly. the views are breathtaking and the little squirrels will be happy to see you at the top. We also saw big horn sheep (female and little ones). When you get to the top and look right, you will notice that you are not really at the end of the trail,... More

It is not often that you get to do a hike where you go all the way to the top of the mountain. I would consider this one of the best hikes in Jasper for that reason. When me and my fiance got to the top of the mountain we were met with strong winds that stole my hat... At... More

I completed this day hike with my sister in June 2014 and we loved it! I chose this trail because it was an advanced trail that allowed you to reach a summit within 4-6 hours. The trail from start to finish including breaks and the time we took at the top to take pictures, eat and enjoy the views was... More

The first 95% of the hike ranges from easy to moderate depending on your hiking experiences, however the last jaunt to the summit is very steep. It requires good hiking boots and endurance. Take your time and don't give up because the view at the top is worth all the huffing and puffing. You get a 360 degree view of... More

This was our first go at a more intense hike and the view was well worth it. On maps, this hike is listed as a black diamond. I can now see why. Although there is no scaling of hillsides, there is a 20% grade in the hike from start to finish and there are patches of technical rocky and rooted... More
