Taking a rest on the ridge of Pyramid Mountain


Great hiking only a step away.

Walk­ing is one of the best ways to get a real feel for the moun­tain region, enjoy great views and hope­ful­ly you see some wildlife in its nat­ur­al habi­tat. There is a vari­ety of hikes avail­able but be sure to check the dis­tance and degree of dif­fi­cul­ty before you set out.  And always car­ry the appro­pri­ate gear.

We rec­om­mend reg­is­ter­ing with Parks Cana­da. “A lot of peo­ple are afraid to reg­is­ter, but even a twist­ed ankle can have you out overnight.”  Check­ing with the Parks Cana­da trail infor­ma­tion office at the vis­i­tor infor­ma­tion cen­tre for up to date trail con­di­tions and maps is also a good idea.  Hik­ers can choose from day hikes (some take only a hour or so) or overnight trips.

Good footwear is most impor­tant and you have to dress for the con­di­tions” says Jasper Nature Expe­ri­ence guide Cleone Todgham.  “Lay­ered cloth­ing is a good idea because it can be a lot cool­er at high­er ele­va­tions.”   You should also make sure your day pack con­tains sun­glass­es, sun screen, a hat, a first aid kit and water before you set out.
