Skoki or Brazeau?
I know these Banff and Jasper trails are not hiking *BC*, but after a glorious week last year hiking the Heather Trail and the Punch Bowl we are looking for something different that comes close to being that rewarding.
We have a week off in mid July. Skoki (40K)is half the distance of Brazeau but has many side trips. Brazeau has more physical challenge but maybe not the variety of scenery?
Can anyone offer advice on either of these trails? How difficult, crowed, horse-trodden, etc.
Or should we just do Manning again? We did the Heather trail and then drove back down the highway to the Dewdney trailhead and did the Punch Bowl. But I think you can do one big trip from the Heather Trail trailhead, through the Cascade recreation area, over the Punchbowl and down to the highway.(just a long way back to get the second car!)
Or, can anyone recommend another 5 night, 6 day trail?
Any comments much appreciated.
