I'm not afrait to say, that it's the most beautiful area near Jasper (>20miles). Lots of hike trails with view at pyramid mountain and Rocky mountains.

We went up in the hope of seeing some wildlife. While we didn't see any the view of the mountains and their reflection on the lake was worth the short drive

This is an all season attraction, and thankfully, it's gorgeous there in every season. Not so well known is that the lakes have a small beaches, and in the summer you can swim in them. Pyramid Lake is the more accessible, with several parking areas and access points. Plus, the island on Pyramid lake has a mystique and beauty that... More

The walk across the bridge to the island is breathtaking. A family of deer walked the island with us. It was a highlight. The Lakes can be so still that the reflections are unbelievable.

Just a short drive out of Jasper townsite to Pyramid Lake and well worth it as you get away from the crowds. The lakes are incredible and the scenery is amazing! There is a nice easy hike around the lake which takes you away from most people and there are boats you can rent in the summer time.

This area is one of our favourites in the world. These lakes offer lots of summer time activities, such as canoeing, paddle boats, and swimming. There is year round dock. Our most recent visit was in November, so it was very quiet and we had the beach to ourselves so our dog could swim. There are lots of hiking and... More

Needing to do our laundry before continuing on our travels we found that Jasper had a laundry on their main street. Much to my delight in the laundry there was also a cafe where I could sip a cafe latte and do my internet work while I cleaned our clothes!

The wife and I went for a nice drive to both of the lakes. The scenery was beautiful and we also saw some wildlife in the wooded areas. It was definitely worth the drive.

Unfortunately it was very overcast the day we visited but we enjoyed our drive and walk. The road out to the lakes is easily found just north of the centre of Jasper and is called Pyramid Lake Road. You just drive this road which takes you past both lakes. You first reach the top end of Patricia Lake before reaching... More
