      PYRAMID LAKE
       PYRAMID LAKE 2

Patricia and Pyramid Lakes - An easy 10 minute drive above Jasper townsite on Pyramid Lake Road brings you to this great recreational spot. Enjoy the two delightful lakes on the "Pyramid Bench".

A 5 kilometer trail loops along Cottonwood slough, a lovely marsh-like area and a small creek before swinging back around. You will pass through a montane forest and, if traveling in July or August, no shortage of flowers.  There are lovely views of Athabasca River far below and bighorn sheep, moose, elk, waterfowl (including loons) and beavers are often seen.  Birdwatchers be on the lookout for hummingbirds, warblers, yellowthroats and thrushers. From the shores of Patricia Lake admire the colors of red quartzed sandstone in Pyramid Mountain (9,000 ft). Stroll over to the island on Pyramid Lake.  Allow 2 hours for the hike that has an elevation gain of 900 feet to about 4,200 feet above sea level.  You can start the trip in Jasper (10 mile hike round-trip), Pyramid Lake Road, Cottonwood slough parking lot or Pyramid Lake riding stables. Or maybe take a taxi up the long hill and do an easy downhill walk.

A great view of Pyramid Mountain and Lake is available from OLD FORT POINT.

Downhill Riding
For a lovely and easy bike riding experience, rent a bike at one of the bike shops in Jasper. Hire a taxi to drive you and your bikes up to Pyramid Lake. It is a lovely downhill ride back to Jasper or you may want to explore the many trails that will also lead you back to the townsite.
