Description

Great Divide Trail - Section F (Jasper to North Boundary Trail) Alternate Route.

This Alternate Route helps avoids most of the need to walk on the shoulder of the very busy Yellowhead Highway (Hwy 16) west of Jasper. A historical old tote road just north of the Yellowhead Highway is used. Together with the Great Divide Trail - Jasper West Alternate Route, the highway road walk is reduced to 2.2 miles, instead of 13 miles.

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