Hike into the backcountry of Jasper National Park on these lodge-based adventures along the Skyline Trail. The spectacular backcountry of Jasper National Park is yours to explore on foot from a rustic lodge on this hiking adventure. Wildlife sightings are common and may include mountain goats, bighorn sheep, black bears, elk and marmots. Relax back at the lodge and enjoy fine cooking and comfortable surroundings.
This lodge is Jasper Park's oldest backcountry horse camp. While maintaining this traditional atmosphere the cabins have all been renovated, providing a comfortable base camp for an exciting hiking experience. Horses will carry all of your gear into the camp, allowing you to hike at a leisurely pace, enjoying the scenery and wildlife along the way. Once at the cabins, you are free to enjoy day hikes and photography safaris, setting your own itinerary and exploring the area at your own pace.
The lodge is located 20.3 Km (12.6 miles) from the Maligne Lake trailhead on the Skyline Trail, just below Big Shovel Pass, near Curator Lake campground. Most hikers complete the Skyline hiking route departing the camp for the Maligne Canyon trailhead, 25.4 Km (15.8 miles) distant. The entire Skyline Trail route crosses 3 passes (7000-8000 ft elevation). This well-maintained and signed route is one of Jasper’s most magnificent since two-thirds of the trail is at or above tree line.
