Red Squirrel Trail

This trail has been around for a while, but Parks decid­ed it need­ed a name and has upgrad­ed the trail nice­ly. Main­ly, it con­nects the town and Jasper Park Lodge with min­i­mal auto traf­fic.

Access from Hazel ave in Jasper, you head toward the High­way 16 (Yel­low­head) then to Old Fort Point and can fur­ther access to Jasper Park Lodge.


This is one of my “go to” dog walk­ing path rou­tine. I get to pass by lake and riv­er. If the dogs get too hot they can cool off and re hydrate.

Discovery Trail

Take a stroll around town

The Dis­cov­ery Trail is a looped trail that sur­rounds the town. The trails are just foot­steps right from your accom­mo­da­tions and lodg­ings. Jasper is quite envi­ron­men­tal­ly sound when it comes to dri­ving. you real­ly don’t need a vehi­cle when in Jasper. Walk­ing from one end of Jasper only takes 15 min­utes or so. If rid­ing a bike, there are ample bike racks around town. The Dis­cov­ery Trail is also a great way to trans­port your­self to the oth­er side of town and get a lit­tle work­out to boot.

You can hire bicy­cles in sev­er­al out­door stores. I high­ly rec­om­mend just walk­ing around and explore this won­der­ful town.
