As part of our Elk Lakes backpacking trip, we took a day trip to Petain Falls. This is a pleasant and very easy hike, about 10km return. We also included the Elk Lakes viewpoint hike on the same day which made for a longer day and much more effort.
I decided early on in 2008 that it was time I bagged a few of the Kane peaks in Jasper National Park. In the span of two weeks I've now completed over half of them! Indian Ridge and The Whistlers were my latest Jasper peaks. I shared the pleasure with two nephews and two brother-in-laws on June 30 2008.
Signal Mountain is easily done off the Skyline Trail backpacking route in Jasper National Park. I would never do it as a stand-alone peak but it could be combined with an ascent of nearby Mount Tekarra via the Signal Mountain fire road from the Maligne Canyon parking lot.
After summiting Robertson Peak I turned my attention to Tallon. I decided that since I wanted some exercise anyway I might as well bag the middle bump between Robertson and Tallon while I was in the area. It was only around 50-75 extra meters of height gain and was easier than side-hill grunting anyway.
