“This trail ascends a mountain to gain incredible views of Jasper NP.
— Chris Riddle
This trail is a great one to get a view of the surrounding area!
The trail is popular, so get an early start to beat the crowd. We started at 7am and shared the top with a half-dozen people. On the way down, we passed an unending stream of hikers working toward the top.
There is a wonderful view and a bench for resting before the last leg of the trail up. While this last leg is steep, know that a suite of gorgeous, panoramic views awaits you from the top of the mountain.
If you'd like to rest your legs, take a dip in the hot springs after your hike for a small fee.
Black bear, grouse, and ravens roam this area.
