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 paved path along lake annette and from Old Fort Point to Jasper Park Lodge and we were not disappointed, nice work Parks Canada! The path made for everyone even wheelchair accessible, this section starts or ends at the beach of lake Annette on the Quicksand side of the lake.

The few trails we took on this trek afforded us with some spectacular views and some wildlife too. This route is also rated easy, not, too much up hills, mostly rolling terrain.

So get out and explore these trails while they are still in great condition. We had ran into a small section of mud between Lake Annette to Fifth Bridge, so avoid if you can, but the weather this week is quite dry so the trail might be dry by then. Have fun.
