The 700m climb from the Miette Hot Springs to the ridge called the Sulphur Skyline and on to Sulphur Lookout is the best day walk in the north of the national park and a magnificent walk by any standards.

You will meet vast and wonderful views from the high ridge at 2,000m +.

Beware unpredictable weather.

This is demanding walking in remote mountains with uncertain weather, where bears are a risk. Come fully prepared.
