The third day of my 4-day-Jasper-peak-begging trip. Park at Signal / Skyline Parking lot or Maligne Canyon Parking lot, take the Jasper Skyline Trail. This is a very long hike / snowshoe trip. Soloing all the way is extremely boring, especially for the 9km-one-way trail in the woods. You don't have any view in the woods, and you just simply work your way up a very gentle grade on the mountain. For skiers, Signal Lookout is probably the most popular destination in this area in winter. For for me, a peak bagger, I wouldn't satisfy if only make to the Lookout. To get to the mountain, you don't need to go all the way to the lookout, instead at the treeline, go straight towards the summit. The ground usually gets wind-blown once completely above the treeline. It's merely a easy scramble, or just an off-trail hiking to the summit. There's a big cairn, but I still can see higher points further down the ridge, and according to Gem Trek's map, the summit lies further south. So I just traversed the entire thing to make sure I summitted the mountain.
The weather was not cooperating at all. It was cloudy most of the day, so despite the relatively isolated location, I could only see the very nearby summits like Mt. Tekarra. I would like to scramble up that thing in the following summer. For the reference see Vern Dewit's report on Tekarra. Mt. Edith Cavell never showed up, nor did Mt. Robson. But I did get great view towards Morro Peak and Hawk Mountain, which I ascended the day before and after, respectively.
The round trip distance is somewhere about 21-23km, and I'm not quite sure the exact. Elevation gain is about 1100m or so, so the grade is very gentle. I didn't even use my shoesnoes’ heal lift system. Round Trip Time is 6.5 hours.
