The trail offers a moderate-high degree of physical strengh needed. Although not for everyone, the trail is gorgeous, and the view from above (if you manage to get there) is simply amazing. Worth visit.

This was the least interesting and scenic hike we took in Jasper. There was a giant climb to get up the viewpoint and the view just wasn't that great.
