Ride the Divide new Jasper addition?
« on: September 14, 2018, 11:59:41 am »
Hi all

i apologize in advance if I missed  any comments.  I was just wondering if there was feedback on the new Jasper section of the Divide Trail yet.  Is the scenery as spectacular as the Icefields Parkway?

I have not biked both (only the Icefields Parkway), but I have ridden stretches of the new ACA route closer to my home in Calgary and driven the rest many times - the GD extension to Jasper does not have the spectacular scenery on the Icefields Parkway, unfortunately.

If you had the time, I would consider starting in Banff or Lake Louise and cycling the Icefields Parkway before starting the GDMBR. You would not be disappointed.

Thanks for the info.  I have seen the Parkway from the front seat of a car a few years ago and remember it very spectacular.  I would love to see it from my bike.  I like your suggestion, thanks.
