This hike was well worth the ass kicking it gives you on the way up. Some of the most beautiful angles of the Jasper Valley you can get.

There was a foot or snow on it when we went and cornices were starting to take shape on the summit ridge. I wouldn't try this in a month or so when snow will be deep and avalanche risks will be present.

Great for the whole family, a lovely sightseeing opportunity without too much work. A bit busy though, and pushy tourists to avert, but a great time nevertheless!

Was September when we visited so no swimming or cliff diving... much too cold too that!

As a simple short hike it wasn't terrible... but there are so many great trails in the area this one may be better left to those who want to get in the water, weather permitting.

Hiked at dusk looking for a moose at recommendation of our Maligne lake cruise guide. Hiked on 9.23.2018, very muddy and didn't see a moose. However we did see a few moose as we left the area on the main road!

I have completed this trail twice now in full with multiple one-day trips on segments. On each full trail adventure I did it once in each direction. My personal preference being the start via Signal. Have stayed/spent time at every campground with Signal, Curator and Little Shovel my favourites. Tekarra and Snowbowl are beautiful though the layout of the actual camp is less desirable (particularly if you need to seek the facilities in the middle of the night).

Prefer the Signal start as a relentless uphill when one is fresh is much more favourable to me than a relentless downhill that never... ever... EVER... ends ; )

Trail review: Week of Sept. 10, exactly a year from the last go-round. Weather was insane in ways we could not have anticipated with Mother Nature under promising and over-delivering, but once again - wow. Trail is incredible and we are blessed to experience. Pack smart. Pack for the weather (4 seasons). And ENJOY.

Also... download this app. Ran it off my phone’s GPS which kept us pointed in the right direction for two days during white - out conditions. AllTrails did not pay me to say this, promise.

Beautiful view, and the falls are incredible every time I see them.

Really enjoyed this route. Would thoroughly recommend. While you are up there it’s worth dropping down on to a few of the other trails so that you don’t put in all the hard work for nothing.

The falls are incredible. The walkway gets very close to the falls at several places. Powerful and loud. The walk itself is on a paved path with several stairs. Very close to the road, very easy to get to.

Relatively short hike. It was very muddy on the day we went. The small Moose Lake at is beautiful and peaceful. Unfortunately no moose on that day.

Best view in Jasper. Not recommended for young children due to challenging weather conditions.

The Falls are a definite must see if you go to Jasper.

We are 3 middle aged mommas who persevered and completed this hike in late August. We're all in decent shape and we felt equipped although we learned plenty more along the way of what to bring and forget the next time. Thankfully we had great weather. No snow or rain. In booking we were only able to secure Little Shovel and Curator. Decided the day before when space opened to cancel Curator and book Tekarra. Not sure if that worked out in our favor?! Our second day was a 25 km hike and it was a little difficult finishing. We were EXHAUSTED. The views and diversity were truly beautiful and soul-shaking. Next time however we'd opt for 3 nights or even 4. Why rush such an amazing trip? I'd recommend that folk try for 3 nights and if can only get two go for Little Shovel and Curator or Snowbowl and Tekarra.

Such a nice surprise! We didn’t even put these falls on our itinerary and I’m so glad someone said they were a must see. We were there in the morning and it was a beautiful chilly day. So pretty walking around and seeing the different views. Great for all ages and all activity levels!

September long weekend 3 day hike staying at snowbowl and tekara. Second time doing it and it's always spectacular.

Shit weather... Freezing rain and snow overnight. Cold gusting winds. Muddy sections and notch quite slick with fresh snow.

Grizzly and cubs near big shovel pass and another 3 Griz between tekara and signal.

super stunning views!
the start is hard to find. it's right across the street from the sign telling you about maligne lake boat tours.

Great hike with absolutely stunning views from the top. As everyone else has mentioned it is a very steep trail so definitely bring hiking poles for both the ups and the downs. Bit of loose rock above treeline but just take it steady. Enjoy!

Cela nous a prit 45 minutes. Il y avait des bancs identifiés aux gens décédés dans les chutes. Très accessible. Ce n'est pas une randonnée par contre er nous y sommes allés vers 0800 AM alors c'était tranquille. Plusieurs points de vu sur les chutes.

Beautiful hike. Not challenging, and worth the 1h 45min.

Arrived early evening, not too many people were around but would be very busy in the middle of the day. Great viewpoint for almost no effort.

Skyline is a must do in Jasper! The views are absolutely breath taking throughout the trail and so rewarding once you cross the notch. My husband and I hiked the trail in two days (one night) due to the time we had remaining. We are 28 and 30 years old and from what I consider to be pretty shape. If you do the trail in 2 days you have to be moving at a pretty decent pace! We stayed as watchtower because everything else was booked and would not recommend that if you can avoid staying there. The trail is not well marked/traveled and it is true the mosquito's are relentless!

This is not a hike. It’s an easy walk along a paved road/sidewalk. That being said, the waterfall is stunning and the walk along the river in one direction and the walk along the canyon in the other direction are both beautiful as well. Good for families with little kids or elderly people. The main part is handicap accessible

Not a hike more of a short walk, visit early in the day as lots of tour buses stop here.

short trail with awesome payoff of a swimming hole with Cliff jumping.

Totally awesome trail. Sure it’s heavily booked in advance but it doesn’t feel crowded. We booked late so modified the route to Evelyn Creek then Watchtower then back to little shovel via the notch - a big day. Ridge walking and views are sensational- must do hike in Jasper

As a first time overnight backpacker, the 2 day hike was challenging. But despite the grizzly encounter on the trail (near Snowbowl) and the hailstorm near Tekerra, the amazing views of the flower covered alpine meadows. turquoise lakes, and majestic mountains made it worth every step!

Spectacular views, beautiful meadows and gorgeous teal/ turquoise lakes. Loved this 3 day hike!

Hiked July 17-19, 2018. Was only able to record day 1 of this trip. Mosquitoes were horrible when we camped at Snowbowl and Tekkara. Even worse on the fire road down to Signal Trailhead. Highly recommend a bug shirt.

We lucked out with the weather: sunny, warm - not cold at all at night, 13-15C. Grizzly spotted on the trail in the meadow between Snowbowl and Curator. He was collared and wasn’t fazed or interested in passing hikers.
