Trail around town-8.3 km loop

Beautiful nature encounter; started with the Discovery trail around Jasper and ended doing Mina Lakes. Right in bear land (did not encounter any!), but saw dear and just enjoyed this beauty around town trails

Meh

A big part of this trail is on the side of a hill that backs onto the parking lots of hotels and the backyards of townhouses - not very scenic. A lot of the interpretive panels are missing, so I didn’t “discover” that much. I wish I would have used my limited time in Jasper to do a real hike outside of town.

Scenic walk close to town
Dec 2019 • Couples
The Jasper Trails were a great way to hike in and around forests without venturing to far away from town. We particularly enjoyed the trail that took you towards pyramid mountain. The paths were relatively flat and we had no trouble walking on them without crampons in winter.

Great walk around town
Oct 2019
Easy walk circumnavigates the small town of Jasper, taking in the natural woodlands, meadows and railway as you go. Evidence of wildlife is more obvious than the animals themselves - 'droppings' of deer and elk all around; ground flora of creeping dogwood and bearberry very pretty. information boards excellent, though several had been defaced, sadly.

THE BEST WAY TO SEE THE TOWN OF JASPER AND ENVIRONS
Jun 2019 • Friends
This a walk of about six miles or so which starts with a sidewalk pathway through the main street and then crosses to follow a meandering pathway past teh backs of houses and then into forest. While it has so quite steep slopes in the forests section it is worth the effort for the 'helicopter' views of the town and the landscape beyond.

Local trail ideal for those staying in the town with only limited time available.

Although there are parts of this trail that are fairly urban, in its approximately 5 miles it does meander through woodland above the town, offering good views over the town to the Rockies.
I experienced plenty of elk, squirrels, and a variety of birds (but fortunately no bears!).
The trail is clearly marked and definitely worth using a spare 2-3 hours for anyone who may be hesitant, or not have time for, trekking further afield.

Brillant Trail around Jasper
Sep 2018 • Friends
We strolled around the on the Jasper Discovery, a very gentle trail around the entire the town about 8km with lots of information points, great views and always the chance of seeing some wildlife.
Simply follow the Bear signs. You can do as much or as little as you want, there are always options to shorten the trail by dropping down into the town, so a trail that is suitable for all abilities and ages.

Easy walk

Very peaceful easy walk that takes you around the lovely fast flowing abathasca river. We saw an elk and lots of squirrels. Walked for approximately 2 hours. Nice way to end the day.

Elk !
Aug 2018 • Couples
In the rain, we set off from the railway station, clockwise round the 'Discovery Trail'. A few information boards gave us reason to pause. Under the railway and across the road we trudged. Turning back along the north side of the town we found ourselves 10metres from two female elk. WOW ! This made the walk worthwhile. A chat with a local guy walking his dog made us wary that the bull elk might still be around so, soaked, we dropped down into Bonhomme Street and returned to our accommodation to dry out.
