Experience the tradition of a horseback trip to the historic Shovel Pass Lodge.The world famous Skyline Trail is serviced exclusively by Skyline Trail Rides.

On the first day, we depart from the trail head at 10 am. We will be riding by Wabasso Lake and then reach a spectacular lunch area where you will be able to take a short break, stretch your legs and give a good rest to your horses.
After lunch, we get back in the saddle and start climbing for the next 2 hours. The horses make light work out of the 3000 ft climb letting you enjoy the wonderful scenery of Jasper National Park. You will reach our backcountry lodge, Shovel Pass Lodge , late afternoon.
