I found this hike more difficult than I first expected. Starting the hike it’s a constant uphill. The trail are well maintained and the path is fairly flat ( no roots etc). The most difficult part is at the end since the peak is very...More

A must do if you can. Unbelievably rewarding! However, this was our second attempt as we went on the wrong hike at first. If you are heading down on a path, you've gone wrong from the start! The miette hot Springs are to the right...More

We are in pretty good shape and it took us close to 2 hours to summit with a couple breaks to apply bug spray along the way. This trail is pretty much uphill the entire way. The final push is very rocky and I recommend...More

An amazing hike with spectacular rewards with 360 degree views at summit. The hike continually winds uphill and the last climb to the summit is quite steep. Well worth the hike as you are rewarded with amazing views. The hike took approx 3 hrs including...More

Ok so this would have been 6/5 if a cloud didn’t cover the mountain as soon as I reached the top. I saw a bear on the side of the road on the way back and the drive to the trailhead was very cool. Not...More

We hiked the Sulphur Skyline trail when there were low clouds and some drizzle. The hike up is consistently uphill with very few flat areas. The trail starts out paved but quickly turns to mud, and then small rocks. Most of the way is through...More

This hike was well worth the effort. The hike up is steep, but it's fairly short so most people can manage it. My dad (65 with a heart condition) managed it slowly. The view from the top is AMAZING. You MUST take the time for...More

It's an 8 kilometer round hike (4 in each direction), but the view from the top is unparallel to anything else and so worth it! Do make sure you're taking the correct path from the top of the parking lot, and not accidently the one...More

In 1977, I first experienced Sulphur Skyline Trail. After a move to Edmonton AB, we started going to Jasper. It was (and still is) the most amazing day hike in Jasper National Park. We did it several times until we moved back to Manitoba in...More

I think it is possible do it after 5 pm. Due to the sunset around 10 pm. So when you go there after 5 pm, it still bright.
