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.
