Did this two years ago. You get a long uphill bike workout to get to the mountain hike trail, great scrambling to the false peak and then to the true peak (a sketchy climb depending on the season), and then a great (fast!) descent in the way down the fire road.

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!

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.
