Access Info

Access from end of Jasper. Going in from Heritage Park Secondary School accesses a network of paths and trails, so it can be trickier to get to the climbing trails. Best access is to go in from Prentis Ave., cross the small creek on the road between the school and church, and enter the trail on the south side of the road, across from the church.
