Park your car at Miette Hot Springs. The hike climbs steadily but not too steeply through spruce and pine forest. Many good views of the vally along the trail. The trail stays in the shade most of the way if you make an early start at 9 am at the latest. It takes approx. 2 - 2,5 hours at a... More

Up and down in ~4hrs at a very leisurely pace. Ended the hike with a dip in the hot springs. I would recommend this hike for all skill, and ability levels.

This hike was on my bucket list for Jasper, and boy did it surpass its expectations! The morning we went the weather was cloudy, and foggy, so we were debating doing the hike because of this. We ended up doing the hike anyways, and thankfully the weather cleared for the most part, we did hit a bit of rain on... More

If you are an avid hiker and enjoy vistas that will take your breath away...visit this area. It is not an overly long hike...about 5 KM one way but you are going up and up! Take water and snacks! Make sure you go all the way to the very top of this climb to get all the great views! It... More

The weather was a bit iffy but we decided to take the risk. We started with a few layers to keep us warm on the chilly start but were quickly peeling them off then putting them back on during little bouts of rain along the way. There are few views in the first mile or so, but once you pass... More

Did this trail today. It is a nice walk, that should be not very hard for the trained hiker. The trail keeps going up during allmost the whole trail, so proberly you need to cache your breath some times on your way up. For untrained people, it would be kind of a challenge! When i did it, the wind was... More

Possibly a difficult walk for some due to number of steps and also altitude but a fantastic view when you get to the top as long as it's a clear day

Sulphur Skyline is a short but steep hike. There are couple of shoulders to explore on the way up plus the summit of Sulphur mountain to climb. 2,070 m. with some of the most exceptional views of the valley. The last part of the hike towards the summit is very steep and it could be tricky. When you get to... More

Did the trail in 3 days. Lovely weather and views. Was cooler at night. .around 0 Celsius. Not many hikers around in September. So there is no need to buy backcountry permits in advance.

Not much to say but I really did love this side to Jasper, the town itself did nothing for me but it is so so beautiful around! <3
