The road to it was challenging. Rough and hard on your vehicle. Don’t do it in a sedan!!!
However, once there, it was a nice , easy hike with modest elevation gain. Will backpack there to spend a few night next time. The lake is beautiful!

Awesome hike. Some parts are windy and slippery. It can be challenging at some moment but the view at the summit totally worth it. We did it in august and were completely alone on the trail.

Have gotten up here three times now and always a good time. The gully is a tad sketchy, so take care and bring a helmet.

We wanted to do the hike today, but because of road restriction we couldn't get to the beginning. You have to cross a little river which is not possible with something smaler than a SUV. So we left the car at the "19km to the trail" sign and hiked up the Hill for a few km before we turned around. It's beautiful up there with a great view of Athabasca River. I assume the landscape is around the same I rate 4 stars, not giving one for not veing able to reach it with every car

Easy scramble up a connecting ridge until you reach the base of Roche miette where it becomes a moderate/difficult as some routefinding is required. Loose rock and steepness on the crux. Be very careful of other parties above and below while scrambling the crux as loose rock is everywhere and easy to knock down. Great views!

short hike to lame falls. wouldn't recommend. instead follow the sign right to upper loop of Pocahontas mine trail for incredible viewpoint over Athabasca River.

I'm going to be honest here. The hike itself is one of my least favorites that I've done in the area. I started from Celestine.
Don't expect to see much until you reach the falls. While it's absolutely beautiful when you get there, it's a long, boring trail. If you are only in Jasper for a little while, I would probably recommend you to skip it in favor of some more enjoyable hikes. If only recommend it if you've done most of the other ones in the area.

There are actually 2 trails that arrive at punch bowl falls . The punch bowl falls trail listed here begins in the campground. We were not able to access this trailhead because we were not registered campers. So we took the Coal mine trail that starts close to the Pocahontas cabins.
The first third of this trail is a significant incline , middle third is level walk , last third is downhill. Great view after the incline . The trail is full of character through the spruce forest . However, the falls were anticlimactic. If you have an 1 1/2 of time it's something to do.

Really fun. The summit scramble is actually quite challenging, things are loose and very steep in parts even for a scramble.

An amazing hike. I hiked it in July 2016 with my sister and my dog. We started our hike from the Celestine Lake trailhead to Seldom Inn on the first day, spending 2 nights here. Then spent day 2 at the falls soaking up the sun and the mist. Sadly we had to go back on day 3. The falls were well worth the hike and we can't wait to go again. Hopefully with more time to check out Celestine Lake and the other campsites. Our worst section of the trail was near the end on day 1. We reached a clear area with some steeper climbs during the afternoon heat with the sun beating down on us which slowed us down some. This area was not a problem on the return trip as it was the cool of the morning with the sun still behind the mountians. Can't wait to hit this trail again!

Stayed at seldom inn, brutal hike on the feet but so worth it. Saw a black bear on trail coming down. We scared it off with bear banger. The falls were spectacular and the trail was deserted and pristine

First off this is not a trail for the light- come prepared, bring a bike and if your speed is not the fastest prepare to do the camp over night route.

A girlfriend and I completed this trail in 8.5 hours with an hour lunch break and just enough time to get back to the parking lot before the sun started to fully drop behind the mountains. You have to time this trail out, as the drive into the trail head is a timed logging road with only one way access during the specified time.

When arriving at the trail head there was only a few cars parked and during the entire trip we did not see one other person (even at the over night back country camp spots).

The trail starts off with a big drop onto a man made bridge, (and what goes down must come up) as soon as you hit the bottom you are climbing your way back up on a decent incline. The trail then stays flat for almost an hour and a half, and you are riding your bike through thick forest on one side and forest edge/ forest on the other. Once you have passed the first camp site you will travel flat for approx 40 more minutes and then start to go down hill again, crossing a little creek with the next camp site on the other side. The trail then flattens out again until you come to a sandy mountain side that is narrow and going down hill. Once you have hit the bottom, you will ride along side the river (which Snake Indian Falls flows into). Do not be fooled into thinking that the falls are close, because they are not. You will have to ride up hill and then onto flat ground again for almost another two hours. Just before the water fall there will be a third camp site. We left our bikes here and hiked down approx 100feet.

This bike/hike was well worth it - this was one of the most surreal places in Alberta I have ever been. The loud rush of the water fall when you are facing it and then the quite relaxing feeling when you are sitting right on top of it will blow your mind. The best part, there was not another single human around except my friend. The total trip was 52K.
