“Surrounded by Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We always take the time to drive to Pyramid Lake every time we are in Jasper. One of the main reasons is to see Elk that usually line the road there. Once at Pyramid Lake you can take the steps to the trail that leads to the bridge to get to the small island that brings you face to face with Pyramid Mountain. Great landscapes and mountain ranges to photograph. This area is also known wolf territory and it is advised to stay away during dawn and dusk when they are hunting for food. Obey all signs with regards to wolves for your own safety.

“Quiet in the winter - worth the drive on the back road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful & quiet the morning we went. No one was around. I loved the bridge to the mini island - and the benches would be a nice place to sit in the summer. The road is not ideal - tons of turns - but worth the drive.

“safer to visit in summer, will return”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Snowy, windy roads, little scary in the springtime. Drive all the way to the end of the road at the 2nd lake and you find a little island, which you can cross over a wooden bridge to get to. Looks great for a picnic spot in the summer/during warmer weather.

Breathtaking scenery! Lovely nature walk from parking lot to small island on shore of Pyramid Lake via foot bridge. Stopped at Restaurant/pub there for diner and drinks and took in the scenery.
