Tonquin Valley Questions
A group of seven of us are planning a trip to the Tonquin Valley in Jasper this summer (third week in July). We're trying to gauge how long we should allow for the hike from point to point (Maccarib to Astoria). We are in good shape and decent back country hikers.
Also, we're wondering if we should start from Maccarib or Astoria?
Are there any day hikes once on the trail?
Is the Hostel at the Astoria trailhead decent?
Is water easily attainable along the trail? What type of weather should we expect in mid-July?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
