These packing lists run through the items you need to bring on Canada's post popular trails.
Use this gear checklist when filling your pack, so you don't forget essential items, useful items, and any little extras you may want to bring.
Being prepared and bringing the right gear will enhance your experience on the west coast. Keep in mind this trail can be wet, muddy and rough, and that tides can affect access to trails and beaches.
While gear can add to your wilderness adventure, it is possible (and some say preferable) to take as little as possible. Add or subtract items to match the trail.
The Skyline Trail in Jasper National Park is one of the premier backpacking trails in the Canadian Rockies and with 25kms of the trail at or above treeline it is easy to understand why. Can be hiked as a point to point backpack of 2-6 days or as a there and back again for a quick overnighter.
