Jasper lakes and beaches

List of lakes and beach­es in Jasper Nation­al Park. Lots to list here, so it will take awhile to post them here. Some of these lakes are not going to be car acces­si­ble. Stay tuned.


Some beach­es are pet friend­ly, so ask at the Parks infor­ma­tion cen­tre where you can­not bring your pet. Try “My Jasper Nan­ny” if you want to leave your pet some where to be tak­en care of.

Tangle Creek

If you are head­ing to Banff or com­ing from, this rest area is a must see in the sum­mer when the water is cas­cad­ing over the cliff. In the win­ter, you might catch some ice climbers on this route. Just along the high­way 93, near the Ice­field park­way and the new Sky­walk,…

Miette Hot Springs

Soak in the Rockie’s hottest pool at Miette Hot Springs. The steam, the warmth, the sooth­ing min­er­al-rich waters hid­den with­in the beau­ti­ful Fid­dle Val­ley lured bathers at the turn of the cen­tu­ry. They made the stren­u­ous 17 kilo­me­tre trip by foot or horse­back for the…

Trail 4–7–13

The beau­ty about Jasper is that we have so many out­door options, no snow? Well, bik­ing is still an option. The labyrinth of trails makes it easy to pick one trail and switch your route at mul­ti­ple inter­sec­tion accord­ing to your whim. We want­ed to check out the new…

Geraldine Lakes Fire Lookout

Aban­don site of a fire look­out What do locals do when there is a day off from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the sum­mer traf­fic? They go hik­ing and explore the few trails that parks has still left open for the hik­ers and pets. This rel­a­tive­ly short hike but a rough road to…

Wilcox Lake

Explor­ing the Wilcox area Won­der­ful hike off the Wilcox trail, a lake hid­den behind some ridges. It was nice to see hid­den gems like these. I don’t think we saw this in a hike book when we decid­ed to do this trek. Word of mouth in around town amongst the like mind­ed…

Cinqfoil Mountain

False sum­mits after false sum­mits Cinq­foil moun­tain is  a inter­est­ing hike, it does not seem long, but it pret­ty well takes a whole day to sum­mit when you final­ly hit the peak. The hike starts off low and some what wet if the marsh is high. The year we did this hike…
