Steep but rewarding, Skyline Trail is mostly used by hikers, nature lovers, and bird-watchers. The wide and paved section of the trail ends abruptly and is followed by a path that climbs continuously up a ridge through the woods. The trail is steepest just below the summit, so watch your step especially when coming down. The views from the topmost ridge--of verdant mountains and picturesque river valleys--are mesmerizing. Pack a windbreaker for the top. On your way back, stop for a dip in the hot springs, the entrance to which lies on the same roundabout as the trailhead. Arrange to visit Skyline Trail and other attractions in Jasper National Park using our Jasper National Park itinerary planner.
