We started this hike at 7:45 a.m., therefore we had lots of solitude! We never saw anyone else until we started down. Beware, this trail makes a continuous steady climb up, up, up! Made it to the top at 9:45 a.m. Spent 45 minutes on top eating our lunch (we were on TN time so it was 11:45 a.m., lunch time) and adding rocks to the cairn marker that looked kind of pitiful. Beautiful view on top, but we liked the view from the top of the Bald Hills hike much better. On the Sulphur Skyline Trail we saw some fall colors starting in the low growing vegetation and shrubs. One really low plant had turned a crimson red! We also saw several ptarmigan on this hike. It took us 1.5 hours to get back down to the trailhead. Pick up a free copy of the Jasper National Park Day Hiking Guide from the information center in Jasper. It gives specific information and maps for many of the day hikes in the area, including this one. It lists this hike as 8.6 km (5.3 miles) round trip with an elevation gain of 700 m (2297 ft.).
