I would say this was the most difficult hike I did on my trip to Jasper/Banff but was also so worth it. Definitely go past the lookout and make it up to the pass, your calves will hurt but the views will be worth it. We hiked this in May 2016, before full summer peak season and there wasn't many hikers once we got to the end so definitely be making noise.

Did this hike today. It was beautiful. We first climb up till the end of the aylmer pass trail. A climbing path trough forest that opens up in a field where you are surrounded by mountains. We walk a bit further trough the field to see all the different kinds and shapes of mountains. On the way back we did the look out which can't be missed. It took us the whole day, 10 hours and we where pretty tired but totally worth it. No bears but we've been singing songs, clapping and yelling all trip (3 people)
