This simple day hike minutes from Jasper townsite will  bring you to this wonderful vista of the valley. This hike is for all ages and there is even a stair case to help you ascend the steep rocky terrain.  Some times Park Canada has some interpretive hikes that will guide you to this area and show you all the flora, fauna and geology or you can hire a day hiking guide locally.
