Description and Tips

This is a moderate hike with big rewards! It starts slowly up a fire road, but climbs gradually through the valley and up and over over Nigel Pass. There is a river crossing after the pass at Brazeau River (the bridge can be washed out). Views are outstanding. If you like, there are backcountry campsites at Boundary Creek or Four Points that can be booked with Jasper National Park. This hike is a part of the larger multi-day Brazeau Loop but can be done in and back as a day trip.
