The Epic Icefield Parkway : Wilcox Pass

The seeker embarks on a journey to find what he wants and discovers, along the way, what he needs. 

If you want to see wildlife during your visit to the Canadian Rockies then this hike offers you a pretty good chance to see some bighorn sheep. You don’t even have to look that hard to see them as they will be just roaming around the meadows you’ll be traversing.

The hike starts at the Wilcox Pass Campground a little bit south of the Athabasca Glacier. Turn right off the highway and park at the parking lot.

The first part of the hike is through a forest. Once you reach the meadows you’ll soon encounter the bighorn sheep. They just stare at you, not giving a damn what you are doing there.

After you took some snaps of the bighorn sheep you soon will have a great view of the Athabasca Glacier. Take your time here as there are so many great viewpoints to admire the majestic Athabasca Glacier.

If you like to continue your trail to Wilcox Pass please be advised that there is an infinite meadow awaiting you. The whole hike is a one way hike so if you have a car be prepared to turn around at one point.
