Walking Summer Outdoor Activities

Alberta has thousands of kilometres of hiking trails, whatever your flavour. From easy to pro, there’s a hike to get you to your happy place: mountains, grasslands, badlands and forests. Where should we start? • Heli-hiking: Get to the top in seconds and start the hike on a high. With just a short helicopter flight, you'll see hidden alpine lakes and meadows. From there, the guided hike can be as chill or adventurous as you’d like. • Winter hiking: Snowy trails transform Alberta’s best hikes into sparkling new terrain in the winter. Pack a thermos of hot chocolate and let the frosty air urge you up to the next frozen waterfall.

Skyline Trail

Jasper, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

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.
