A short trail located in Jasper, Alberta. This trail is more a viewpoint than hike but it is well worth the view. The hardest part about this trail is actually locating it. Something of a well-kept secret, this trail is located on the road up to Marmot Basin. To locate the trail use the AllTrails app as a guide and park just before where the trailhead starts (there is a pullout). The trail is located just before you turn left to enter Marmot Basin ski area; you'll see "no parking" signs where the trailhead is located. As stated before, park just before this section where there is no signage to avoid a fine.





The trail is located just behind the barrier on your right at the apex of the corner. Follow a rough trail that is flat until you reach the edge of the cliff - mind your step, and welcome to the "Edge of the World".





Be sure to bring Bear Spray, there is often sightings in the area. Hiking poles are not necessary.
