This Alternate Route bypasses about half of the 14 mile road run at the beginning of Great Divide Trail - Section F (Jasper to North Boundary Trail). It is mostly over well maintained trails. However, there is a short (2-3km/1-2 mi) stretch of tough bushwacking from Saturday Night Lake Loop to Dorothy, Christine and Virl Lakes Trail #60.
Please see the resources listed above under Need to Know for up to date detailed descriptions and valuable hiker information.
