Jasper Lake Region
Jasper National Park
More of a broad floodplain for the confluence of the Athabasca, Maligne and Snaring Rivers than an actual lake, this region of Jasper National Park provides roadside access to a number of great scrambling opportunities. Lying in a precipitation shadow, this area remains dryer throughout the year which not only makes it a great early season destination, but can also provide you with a nice sunny day out while it storms in the distance. Cinquefoil, Hawk and Morro are the main peaks accessible from Highway 16 (the Yellowhead), while the likes of Esplanade, Gargoyle, Greenock and Roche De Smet can be accessed from the Celestine Lake Road on the north side of the lake.
