In and around these two lakes are a handful of great trails. I've live in town for 3 years and the beauty never gets old. Bring water and snacks as anything you will need to buy up here will be expensive. Worth wile is the trail to the base of pyramid mountain.. Leave early enough in the morning and scramble... More

Did you know Jasper has one of the largest dark night preserves in North America?!? Well get out to Pyramid lake (15 min drive down a dark windy road), and head right to the island. It is a small cute island, that will afford you some spectacular views of the sky. It is an alright day trip too, but honestly... More

My husband and i were in Jasper for a long weekend. We drove here, a ten minute drive from the Jasper townsite. It was a gorgeous day, started out cool in the am and warmed up. We parked close to the small island in the lake and walked around the lake for an hour. It was very slippery on the... More

Pyramid lake is a very nice place to see the sunrise,at morning. In winter time the whole lake is frozen,nice time for pictures. Patricia lake is near by. They are almost like twin lakes. The mountains near by shine golden with sun rise. This is due to some metal in the mountain - was called fools gold. :-) There is... More

At the end of Pyramid Lake is a small island that you can access by a small footbridge. It makes a nice little hike, even in cold weather. There are benches to sit and absorb the scenery, which is awesome.

There are many hiking trails around Pyramid & Patricia Lake. You can enjoy other winter and ice activities such as skating or snowshoeing...even a simple walk on a frozen lake is stunning! Nice place to spend a day.

We've read that Jasper National Park was designated as a Dark Sky Preserve so we decided to head out to Pyramid Lake to stargaze and we were not disappointed. Pyramid Lake is only 10-15 minutes drive out from town. On a clear night, the whole sky is lit up with so many stars. Only downside was there were cougar warnings... More
