Atomic number 16

This hike near starts at Miette Hot Springs (about an hour from Jasper) so there is the option to take a soak in the hot water when you are done.

Hike
This hike is a steady climb all the way to the top. The last portion once you clear the treeline is the steepest and trekking poles can be handy for the climb down. It's also very windy up top, so much so on the cloudy, rainy day we went that even my trekking poles were being blown around.


The views from the top on a clear day must be incredible but clouds limited the views we got. However, we did spot a large group of bighorn sheep in the area where the treeline ends so that helped ease the pain of lack of views.
    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.
