As a family of four we had a very memorable experience. The gondola, and the top of the summit offered amazing views. Covid 19 precautions were in full effect so we felt safe during the whole experience.

It took us over 4 hours up and back but we paced ourselves as a group and took multiple breaks. This was our first time to Jasper so we took a guided hike and had the benefit of an experienced tour guide who made the experience all the better. There was a lot of people on the trail the day we went so bears were not a factor. It was a warm September day but we needed our warm jackets at the top. The last 500 meters are the hardest but the view from the top is beyond description.

Sulphur Skyline was an awesome, rewarding and challenging hike in Jasper and it was one of my favourites in the park! It is an 8 km roundtrip hike from the trailhead to the summit of the mountain offering incredible views of the mountain landscape. The trail was about a 50 minute drive from the town of Jasper. I hiked this trail on August 4th. The trail was a steady uphill climb the entire way to the summit and there were no breaks from the elevation. Be prepared for a heart pumping and leg burning workout! It began on a paved path and then transitioned to gravel, leading through the forest for most of the way. The path then transitioned into switchbacks up the mountain, opening up to some amazing views of the mountain landscape on the way. The trail became steeper as it continued further and entered above the tree line. It was a very steep climb along a windy trail up an exposed rocky ridge to the top of the mountain and involved a bit of a scramble to the peak. It was a challenge on the legs and hiking poles are definitely recommended to stay stable on the loose rocky landscape. What an incredible and rewarding feeling it was to reach the top! The panoramic views of the surrounding mountain peaks and valleys were breathtaking, impressive and were one of the most beautiful sights I have witnessed. It was crazy to see that I was standing at the same elevation as the other mountains around. It was windy and chilly at the summit, so make sure to bring a windbreaker. I enjoyed finding a sheltered spot to sit behind a large rock at the top to eat a snack while admiring the vast and dramatic views around me. The hike took me around 4 hours to complete and I began at 8 AM. I would consider myself to be in good physical shape and found this trail difficult, taking many breaks along the way for rest and water. After the hike, I enjoyed soaking in the soothing mineral waters at the Miette Hot Springs (which are located at the trailhead and shares the same parking lot as that for the hike). There are two large swimming pools with water heated naturally from the mountain with amazing views of the mountains all around you. The hot springs were busy during the midday but it was not so packed that you couldn’t find a place to stand/sit in the pool. Hiking the Sulphur Skyline was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend this trail.

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 steep!!! If you can reach the top you can have a pretty view from almost the top.

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 of the car park and the sign for the sulphur skyline is near the entrance. If you cant see the springs you've gone wrong. We started this hike at 6pm and were the last ones on the mountain. It's a fairly log slog to the top, but as someone of mid level fitness achieved it in just over an hour with pretty much continuous walking. And wow is it worth it! Had a pretty scary encounter with a bear on the path on the way back down, so highly recommended doing this when more traffic on the path/with bells.
