Great hike !
I started from the Marmot road. I camped to Amethyst campground and the spot was awesome in the morning and at the sunset. I proposed to end with the Astoria valley because of the section in front of Old Horn Mountain... It's rather boring at this point if you go up !
The negative about this trail is the Portal campground section. They are many flies and mud.

The first part on bike in the old fire road is very painful. At the end of this trail, you need to scramble all the way up. Nothing too technically difficult. You will be tired the next day but it's still worth it.

Be ready for mud ! After a few days of rain, the trail was very very muddy ... I day hike the trail. The camp site is a beautiful place for a snack

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 where towards the end it does get fairly steep until it levels out. The views of Maligne Lake and the Hall of the Gods are absolutely magnificent, and we just wished there was a bit more sun on the day we hiked. You can finish the hike here and loop back to Maligne Lake and we will rate that hike as moderate due to the length and steepness for the last km or so. However if your fitness levels allow, we would absolutely recommend pushing on to the Bald Hills summit that will add a couple of kms to the hike. It is very steep (see photos) for a few 100 metres but the 360 views of the Canadian Rockies you get at the top are just so worth the effort. Proper footwear and warm clothing a must. We did this in early october and we had snow showers on the summit. A bucket list hike!!

Nice little Hike to 5th Bridge Loop.

One of my favorite hikes in Jasper. Most is a relatively easy hike, but has some steep sections.

Good trail for the kids as it is well taken care of.

This is our backpacking trip in Jasper's Skyline Trail.From Maligne Lake to Maligne Canyon, three days, two nights in Snow Bowl & Tekerra campgrounds, 44 KM'S in total. It rained most of the time, mosquitos were in high numbers, but we still had a good time.

A must do if you're in jasper. Absolutely beautiful.

I hiked the Old Fort Point and the Red Squirrel portion of this trail. The Red Squirrel portion is a flat little trail that leads into Old Fort Point trail. Old Fort Point starts off ascending stairs down near the Athabasca River. You then start your climb on the trail. It is a decent pull and a very rewarding if not spectacular view. When I hiked to the summit there was a Big Horn Ram and his mate sitting on top of the mountain! great treat! We also came across a huge Elk and his Harlem on the Red Squirrel.

Quite technical in some spots due to mud and rain. It felt like 15 km with all our alternate routes taken to stay out of mud to Jacques lake. Very beautiful hike and campground. Saw no wildlife. Log book at campground said many saw moose.
