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

We LOVE this hike, but be prepared as it's sometimes VERY windy up top. On a clear day, there are mountain views everywhere, and it's hard to find anything to complain about. Be sure to bring layers as it can be cooler up top. Highly...More

Wow. This hike is amazing, challenging, and gorgeous. We went in the beginning of October, so we expected snow up at the top, but didn’t expect it at the start. When we checked the trail report that morning it said the trail condition was good,...More

Probably the best walk we did in 8 weeks of traveling through Alaska, BC and Alberta. I wouldn't classify this as difficult, more strenuous. If you are halfway fit you will do it and it's worth the effort. Remember, you can soak those aching limbs...More

Every mountain has a distinct look, but these more than many others. The views are memorable, but so is the smell of the forest on the way, the tang of the late current crop, and the changing undergrowth as you climb up to cooler areas....More

We combined this hike with the nearby Utopia Mountain Route to spend a nice day near Miette Hot Springs. You may wish to save the Sulphur Skyline hike for last as the view from the peak will provide a highlight to the day.

My daughter was excited to bring me to the top, where she previously has been. It was a heart thumping, sweaty but glorious hike! I am not in great shape but am not in crappy shape either and this was a fricken workout! I'm glad...More

Although this is a moderately difficult hike, I would say that the real difficult bit is at the end. Once you get above the tree line the path is lose and steep. This last bit is difficult to get up and down. We ascended on...More

Once we finally found the trail-head (had to ask a few people) it's a consistent climb through the trees before it opens into the alpine. After that, it's a more strenuous scramble up to the peak, but SO worth it! Was told it would take...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.
