Overview/Getting There

Whistlers Peak is located in Jasper National Park just west of the town of Jasper.

This peak is a cake walk with a view, take the Jasper Tramway to the almost the top!

For you overachievers, the Indian Ridge page describes actually hiking from the bottom up the mountain. 

I would write more, but not sure this peak deserves it. Great view though! All the way to Mount Robson on a clear day.

Whistlers Peak Summit - Note the tourists



Route

From the upper tram terminal, hike up the well used trail to the well marked summit with all the tourists. 

It is a little less than a mile hike to the summit. I ran to the top in August 2009 wearing flip flops.

Catch a bite to eat at the Tram Upper Terminal restaurant. Again, can't beat the view!

Red Tape

Pay for the Tramway ($35 for adults).

When to Climb

April - October when the tram is running, unless of course you are an overachiever and want to hike up the mountain. 

Camping

Nice hotels in Jasper. 

Hostels for cheaper. 

Campgrounds also nearby including the Whistlers Campground on the way to the Tram.
