Beautiful hike, about an hour and a half start to finish. Start by walking up clear path and end up in open where you will see the bald hills. Don't let the snow stop you! Keep going through until you get to the top of...More

The trek starts on a stone road and a gradual incline. We took the short cut switch back that goes off to the left, it's not really a short cut, more of a hiking trail and not a road. Note that it is steep, and...More

It is worth the steady uphill walk on the wide path to get to the top. Along the way we saw amazing snow capped mountains, but at the Maligne Lake lookout it was spectacular. It had been raining in Jasper, and we could still see...More

If you do go to Maligne Lake it is definitely must do hike. It has absolutely everything you could ask for. You start the hike from the Maligne lake trail head (It is very well signed) and start a steady climb to the first viewpoint...More

It depends if you go all the way to the top or not. To go the whole way would probably take you 4 - 5 hours round trip. It would be very difficult for a 3 year old to walk this trip or for you to carry them.
