Regarding trail Skyline Trail near Jasper, AB

I've booked the following dates for my third adventure on the Skyline (June 26 - July 1 2016) with stops at Little Shovel, Watchtower, Curator, Tekkara and Signal. The option of swapping out Curator for Shovel Pass Lodge on the 28th also exists.

Trekking solo for now but open to sharing the trail with easy going first timers or repeaters alike!

I'll be leaving Vancouver by car on either June 24 or 25 2016.

< BR>Skyline in June sounds interesting. I have not done this trail, but have read about it. The trail is 45km and I was thinking of doing it in three days (15km/day) ... your thoughts?

< BR>Three days is a good split - as a lot of the comments and reviews have noted, be prepared for any and all weather between June and October! I've experienced blazing sun one day, torrential rain the next and snow/hail the day after only to finish up on a fairly sunny day at the bottom.

Enjoy!
