     BIKING IN JASPER


Take some advice. Talk to the Jasper Adventure Center for ideas at 604 Connaught Drive. They can make suggestions and help with arranging a bike rental and equipment. Advice and bikes are also available at Freewheel Cycle, 618 Patricia Street.

We recommend the 13 kilometer "Overlander trail" which twins the Athabasca River from Maligne Canyons' 6th bridge to the Yellowhead Highway (Highway 16 between Edmonton and Jasper). Not for the absolute beginner.

Novices and families (and those of us not in the best of shape) can still enjoy riding "trail 7" from Old Fort Point to Maligne Canyon or the easy rides along the Valley of the Five Lakes.

The trails above Jasper townsite and near Pyramid lake are great medium-low difficulty rides with spectacular lake views and lots of alpine scenery.

For those seeking a very easy ride rent a bike in town then hire a taxi to take you uphill to Pyramid Lake resort. Spend time there (canoeing perhaps) then ride your bikes downhill to Jasper townsite. This is a great way to spend a day without expending your energy.

Please note. Horses have the right-of-way on shared trails. Bike only on designated trails and bring water/snacks both in and out with you. Some trails are off-limits to bikers so be courteous and be aware!

**You don't need to rent the most expensive bikes unless you are a serious rider. Bike rental shops have different prices for different types of bikes. Get the bike and price that suits you best

Banff Park


Humans have lived here for about 12,000 years. The first settlers moved into the area as the last great ice-age came to an end. At the same time several local species of animal became extinct including wooly mammoth, camels, cats with sabre-like teeth and other species.
