“Great for Sunrise/Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Both lakes offer vantage points for sunset and sunrise. Pyramid is also wonderful for canoeing (you can rent canoes and platform-kayaks). Nice hikes around Pyramid Lake, but be sure to have bear spray with you at all times.

“Jasper's Hidden Gems”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Pyramid lake is one of Jasper's hidden gems. Most tourists don't ever come here, and most organized tours don't even hear about it!
Pyramid lake is a fantastic place. Bring some picnic food, maybe some blankets, and spend a late afternoon on the Pyramid Lake Island. There are picnic tables here too. The backdrop of Pyramid Mountain over the still waters of the lake at sunset is just spectacular. Looking the other way, Mt Edith Cavell reflecting in the lake will take your breath away. Stay until the stars come out, listen for the call of the loon. You won't regret it! If you dare and want to go for a dip, use the right shore of the island to wade in - anywhere else you'll brake your legs on the slippery rocks! I almost did! Mornings can be majestic too, with fog rolling in and out, but the best time to admire the red colors of Pyramid Mountain is sundown. Just don't tell everyone else about this place!

“Restful, calm, beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Very peaceful area with beautiful views. Others reported wildlife on the road, but we didn't see any. Close to town but with a woodsy, country feel.

“Winter at It's Best - Out and About Around Jasper, Alberta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Drove up the Pyramid/Patricia Lake road to take a couple of short walks in brisk winter weather. Alberta's winter sunshine is at it's best when you get to be in the crisp, clean mountain air. From the Pyramid Lake parking lot, we walked the short distance to Pyramid Lake Island. It is a magical place at anytime of year, but during the winter, you will miss all the crowds.

“Beautiful Scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We enjoyed a evening trip out to Pyramid Island. It was busy when we first got there but the people cleared out and we were able to enjoy our time out on the island. We got some great pictures. Parking is limited and the road tends to be crowded by the resort. Scenery is beautiful and we saw some Elk along the road on our way back to town.
