Indian Ridge is some people's favourite day hike in Jasper NP.

Start at the top of the Jasper SkyTram at Wistlers Summit, thus missing 1000m or more of climb (yippee!). The walk climbs to the summit, then heads out into the wilderness, descending to a col, then climbing back up to the Indian Ridge.

Explore this area, and revel in huge views out over unsullied wilderness, including to Mt Robson, Canada’s highest mountains.
