      VALLEY OF THE LAKES - ALBERTA

   Five little gems, within 10 minute drive of Jasper and each unique and beautiful.  (Not to be confused with the Valley of the Five Lakes near Wabasso Creek)

SPRING FED LAKES
Lakes Edith and Annette is v
ery easy to find and these glacial lakes offer easy and scenic walks. Beautiful blue-green spring fed waters are a joy to see and the are very close to Jasper Park Lodge. Lake Annette features a fully accessible interpretive trail, 1 hour in length. A walk around Lake Edith will afford views of some of the fine homes of those lucky enough to live here. The trail is paved and you may see scuba divers duck-walking into the warmer mountain waters. There are even sandy beaches in front of torquoise waters that will make you think you
are in Hawaii or Mexico!

VALLEY OF THE LAKES

 Lakes Beauvert, Mildred and Trefoil - Jasper Park Lodge is built on spring-fed lakes, Lac Beauvert and nearby Mildred Lake. Easy walks on Lac Beauvert (trail 4A) will take you through cool forests, around the green lake (Beauvert in French is beautiful green) across a wooden bridge and past the Rocky Mountains best golf course. The 4.2 kilometer trail here is also suitable for jogging. The Whistlers and Mount Edith Cavell can be seen from several vantage points. The walk brings you back to the trimmed lawns and fabulous cuisine of the Jasper Park Lodge

You may see scuba divers in the Five Lakes who come from the prairies to train in the relatively warm and clear mountain lakes. Lake Edith is known to be the warmest.


VALLEY OF LAKES
Does this sandy beach look like Grand Cayman or Hawaii? Nope, this is the Canadian Rockies ! This lake is a very short drive or walk from the Jasper Park Lodge and only 10 minutes from the town of Jasper.

KETTLE LAKES
Most of Alberta's lakes were formed during the last glaciation, about 12,000 years ago. There are many different types of lakes in Alberta, from glacial (Kettle) lakes in the Canadian Rockies to small shallow lakes in the prairies, and you will even see large clear lakes with sandy beaches and clear water in the central plains. Examples of Kettle lakes are Annette Lake, Edith Lake and Beauvert lake, very near to Jasper.
