The Skyline Trail is considered one of the most popular backcountry walks in the Canadian Rockies. With more than half of the 44-km trail above the treeline, the views are expansive and spectacular. Most walkers choose to start beside Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park and trek north to the base of Signal Mountain. Walking this challenging trail takes between two and six days. Remote campsites are available along the route and should be booked well in advance.
Amisk Wuche is the Cree Indian name for Beaver Hills. The diversity of this trail is ideal for keeping children interested. You’ll wind through aspen, birch and spruce stands and walk along a series of floating boardwalks that will take you across small kettle lakes and beaver ponds.
The trailhead for this gentle 11 km (6.8 mi) roundtrip walk to Sundance Canyon in Banff National Park can be accessed from the Cave and Basin parking lot. Bikes and rollerblades are welcome on the first 4 km of paved pathway.
