"More hikes from Jasper townsite" Hikes /Trails Tip by sunnywong

Hikes /Trails, Jasper National Park: 6 reviews and 6 photos

Favorite thing: Best of the bunch, the Old Fort Point Loop (6.5km round trip), is highly recommended. Despite being just thirty minutes out of town, it's remarkably scenic, with 360 views and lots of quiet corners. To reach the trailhead (1.6km from town) use the Old Fort Exit, following Hwy-93A across the railway and Hwy-16 until you come to the Old Fort Point-Lac Beauvert turn-off: then turn left and follow the road to the parking lot beyond the bridge.

Fondest memory: The Valley of the Five Lakes Trail (4.6km) is also good, but the path starts 10km south of town off the Icefields Parkway. For full details of all park walks ask at the information center for the free Day Hiker's Guide to Jasper.
