Trail etiquette

Jasper National Park

Thanks for respecting our trails and keeping them safe so that they can be enjoyed by all.

  • Please respect dog restrictions and closures
  • Do not walk or snowshoe on ski tracks
  • Leave no trace. Pack out all your garbage

Not all signed destinations are safe for winter travel
  • You don't need to venture far to be in avalanche terrain. Choose your winter trail from a list of designated safe destinations.
  • If you plan to travel beyond designated winter destinations, ensure you have appropriate knowledge, skills and carry a transceiver, probe and shovel. Avalanche Forecast.
Pets are welcome on most trails but must be leashed at all times
  • To a wild animal, your dog is a canine – a predator. An animal may behave aggressively or flee, endangering itself or your pet.
  • Walking or snowshoeing on the track set portion of cross country ski trails endangers skiers who later use the track.
Never feed or follow wildlife
  • If you see tracks, do not follow them toward the animal.
  • If you see an animal, give it lots of space and observe from a distance with binoculars or a telephoto lens.
Check the weather and trail report before departing
  • Cell phones are not always reliable throughout the park.
  • Trail reports are updated regularly as conditions change. Trails are rated for their overall condition and difficulty.
  • Review the weather, trail conditions, and current closures before your trip and enjoy!
