I can only offer that if you want to go 13.x direct to 17.x:
- you ought to do a lab test as this is not officially endorsed.
- I know downgrading from 17.x to 15.1 has been problematic in our lab, requiring USB stick recovery.
- I know that upgrading from 15.1 to 17.4 is fine.
Avoiding lab time/risk, what Ola suggests is the simplest most pragmatic approach if you have a small number of boxes.
If you have many, 13.x direct to 17.x is a more attractive option if you can prove in the lab, to your satisfaction, that it works for you.

Not that I am in any way authoritative... And I think Juniper has official guidelines, but these might be a bit conservative. Depending on your config and feature sets.
But I would at least suggest doing a few steps.
13.2 to 15.1 should be ok - skipping 14.
15.1 to 17.1 (and probably even 17.4) should also be ok, skipping 16.
But do a backup, and verify in each step. The biggest changes are from <
15 to 15+
