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

The view from the top is just spectacular. You can stand and stare for ages. Make sure you go right to the very top. Although you get an awesome view from the first summit point it does get even better. We had a stunning rainbow and we were right at the arc at the very top...just before the storm about... More

Just so you know what kind of hiker is making this review: I am a transit driver on the coast (at sea level). A serious hiker I am not. So for people of average fitness HERE are the real goods. Reading the first part of this review, this hike isn't going to seem like a good idea but read on,... More

Beautifully graded switchback trail that leads to a gorgeous open area just above the tree line. Beautiful panoramic views. Perfect spot for a lunch. Short 10-minute push to the summit for even nicer views, but no reason to spend a lot of time there when is so nice just below. Go early when it is cooler and nobody is there.

This hike has a considerable elevation gain (some 700 m), but it is relatively straightforward and very rewarding for the views that await at the top. It can be done in 3 hours. Best experience it early morning, when there is a better chance of clear skies and uninstructed panorama. The added bonus is that the earlier you go, the... More
