Need to Know

The GDT is a wilderness trail. Hiking it provides a wilderness experience that in places may include unmaintained trail, no trail at all (route finding required), animal sightings and encounters, isolation, unbridged creeks and rivers, and long distances between resupplies.

Summer weather can include snow :>)

Resources regularly updated with the latest conditions and other information are:
- GDTA website www.greatdividetrail.com
- Dustin Lynx book "Hiking Canada's Great Divide Trail"
- Dustin Lynx's Guidebook Topo Map Set
- GDT App

The GDT (Great Divide Trail) is a long distance hike along the Continental Divide in Canada. This is Section F, the second northernmost section of it.

Section F runs from the town of Jasper, Alberta in Jasper National Park, to a trail junction in Jasper National Park where the Moose River Route meets the North Boundary Trail.

The Moose Pass meadows, some of the most beautiful high mountain meadows on the planet, are in this Section. They are pristine, remote, surrounded by endless snowy mountains and especially beautiful with wildflowers (late July/early August). However, they are well guarded by lower, large, wet meadowy areas where the trail is easily lost, if there actually is a trail at all, AND one must splash through rivers - the wild and beautiful, turquoise Moose River, and the swift flowing, glacial Smoky River.

And don't forget to visit the postcard-perfect Mt. Robson, a short side trip from the end of Section F.

Please see the resources listed above under Need to Know for up to date detailed descriptions and valuable hiker information.
