This is a great singletrack trail following the Athabasca river.
Mostly singletrack with some steep but short climbs and several stream crossings. One cliff section requires caution. Beginners should proceed slowly or walk. Expect to encounter bears and elk, depending on season. You have the option of taking the same trail back or completing a loop by taking Highway 16 back to Jasper.
How to get there:
from Jasper, head east towards Hinton and take the first bridge on the right, just off Highway 16. Turn left pass the bridge on Maligne Lake Road and look for the 6th bridge picnic area. There bike across another small bridge and turn left; the trail starts by the river.
Old remains of a wooden building about halfway on the trail are great for a picnic.
