Polinge Creek trail to Malinge Pass

I just did the trail on July 19th (2016). JNP didn't have a lot of info on the condition of the bridges at the time. I can say that as of the date that I hiked it 7 of the 8 bridge/log crossings...

Looks like my trip to Skoki was two months too early. I had forest fire haze and a heat wave.

Great photos!

Whenever I hear about bear attacks, I want to find out the circumstances under which they occurred. Often, they involve someone jogging or cycling, so they are moving quickly and quietly.

Nice to see this area being visited. It's on my list. I don't see a lot of photos of the area, so thanks for them on Zenfolio. They've bumped up this trip on my list of priorities.

Pics From Parker Ridge

This isn't so much a trip report as an excuse to show some photos of one of the best hikes - regardless of the crowds - in the Rockies. After a few aborted intended stops (too many cars in the...

No safe access to a water source between Whitehorn CG and Emperor Falls. Other than that, there's water a plenty.

Water within 25 metres of Robson Pass campsite - cooking area to be specific.

Horse outfitters bring in more cash than backcountry hikers, so that will never happen. It's just a matter of time until JNP has zip lining. They're looking to sell out - just look at the Maligne...

Can't say for sure if it's completely new. It does have new base pillars, which would be an indication that it is new from the ground up. The stone is gone from the front porch. Maybe they'll put...

I hike as far as possible into the alpine zone and load up the water bottles. Better chance of clean water there.

For the record I use the MSR miniworks. Still reliable after ten years of use. ...

Phew! I had heard that it was a forgone conclusion that it would be approved. JNP seems hell bent on bringing in the tourists in droves. They need to cool it.

My favorite spot is at the upper of the two lower lakes. There is a level spot that is easily noticeable for pitching a tent. It's also a great spot for photography. Any where in Clearwater Pass...

I use the Ursack. It comes with a OPSak to seal in food smells, which might mean that you'd never have to find out if the sack is actually effective.
