Wow! that is some amazing scenery up the Cataract Pass I'm definitely not going to miss it. I will be coming from Banff and plan to start at Nigel Pass. How far up from boulder creek is Cataract Pass? I would definitely be interested in doing the horseshoe trip you mentioned but I can't find a good trail map for the White Goat wilderness area. Do you have any resources you can link me to?
Another option I've been thinking about is doing the Brazeau trail up to Jonas Cutoff then head through Maligne trail to Skyline and finishing up at jasper for a 10-day trip. How difficult would it be to hitch a ride from Jasper back to Nigel Pass? I really appreciate the suggestions. Thank you
