Jasper’s North Boundary Trail Backpacking

by Starry Summit Mountain Adventures

(DIFFICULT) The North Boundary Trail is one of the longest trails in the Canadian Rockies, and home to some of the most remote and spectacular scenery in Jasper National Park. Starting on the Celestine Lake Road near the Jasper Townsite, this trail follows the course of the Snake Indian River, passing by the roaring torrent of Snake Indian Falls, before crossing into the Smoky River drainage and ending within sight of Mount Robson. This is a strenuous trail with numerous unbridged river crossings, more-rustic campsites, and is replete with the feel of wilderness. For Summer 2023 exit via the Berg Lake Trail (in Mount Robson Provincial Park) is not possible due to a trail closure, this route will finish just outside the Jasper National Park boundary at Bess Pass, where guests will be whisked away by helicopter back to civilization.
