Scrambling Routes
Mostly an off-trail hike to summit; easy scrambling if traversed. Close to the Jasper townsite, Indian Ridge is an easy, scenic jaunt that benefits from the popular Whistlers tram. From the upper tram station, the entire trip rambles above tree line granting an expansive view of peaks and lakes. Whether you traverse it or simply hike to the highest point, it's worth buying a lift ticket. For purists considering hiking up to the Whistlers rather than riding the tram, there are NO free rides back down. Try this trip from mid-June on. Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 316
