Fantastic payoff at the top, glad we went up the first steep part, the fire road does add more distance. Probably the highlight hike of our trip. Wore us out pretty good though we weren't in the best shape. Not to be missed!

Fantastic hike one of the best views from all the hikes I have done and have done a lot in the area. I definitely wouldn't class it as as hard hike though, part of one loop is on a fire track and the other isn't very steep or hard also no scree or scrambling at all. There is 2 false summits MAKE SURE you push on to the summit the view is worth it and the hike from both false summits to the true summit is very easy.

Le brouillard et la pluie nous ont privé de la vue au sommet....

A bit of everything! A mix of steady climb and Tough uphills, stunning panoramic views (if it weren't for the smoke, this would have been my favorite hike ever), and an interesting loop trail with views of Maligne lake on the descent. Some expert navigation on the way down but overall, can be tackled by people of all fitness levels.

Follow the skyline trail for some time for better views of the surrounding peaks and valleys, if time permits. Spotted some mammoths at the top!

Beautiful hike. Lots of uphill but well worth it. The alpine meadow was quite unique. Unfortunately, smoke from forest fires obscured much of the views but we stilk enjoyed being at the summit

fairly busy up hill hike. it was quite smoky from the wildfires so the views were not great. definetly recommend going to the top for a more satisfying view. go right at where the loop begins for a more gradual incline and better views coming down. w
Would love to do this hike again when the smoke clears!
