Trail Directions
take the parkway east from jasper to the snaring campground turnoff. then proceed up an extremely narrow, and death defying road, that will scare you to death, because if you drive off the edge of this one, you will get to see heaven or get to see hell.

Summary:
From the parking lot to the Willow Creek trail the road is wide but very rocky. After 1 km the marked Willow Creek trailhead appears but becomes a single track and tree roots add to the rocks. Ups and downs add to the fun (difficulty). After 9 km and a long downhill stretch, the Willow Creek valley is reached.
Unfortunately, horses had chewed up the trail badly and the swampy conditions turned us back. Another 7 km lay before us to Willow Creek and a further 5 km or so to Snake Indian Falls.
I'm not sure that this is meant to be a bikable route, unlike the easy fire road access from the south thru Jasper National Park. However, the trail is supposed to improve greatly once Willow Creek camp is reached.

Recommended Route:
From Wilmore Wilderness entrance point at Rock Lake via Willow Creek ("West gateway").

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The rocky road into Wilmore Wilderness follows the Wildhay River but is sometimes lost at river crossings.

Summary:
There's a few camp gound on this trail, to my knowledge, and to get to snake indian falls I would recommend anyone to get a mountain bike. Don't forget your fishing permit and bugspray. The path is not amazing, it's a fire road. But when you get to that fall it is pretty impresive. You can continue on this Fire Road and eventually hit mount Robson. Write me and I will send you a picture

Recommended Route:
You need a permit, so go to the park office and register. Beware, the route to get the trail head is 1 way at certain hour.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Brazeau lake, Meadows trail, Skyline trail...
