(44 km/27 mi; moderate; no bikes) This spectacular two+ day backpacking trip follows meadows, ridges and slopes mostly above treeline. You can ditch the tent and stay at Shovel Pass Lodge (1-877-852-7787) midway—they offer meals plus horse riding and gear freighting options. Park across the road from Maligne Canyon (Map 5, 6N) and take the Maligne Lake shuttle (p 148) to the trailhead. Your car will be waiting at journey’s end.
