Starts at Parking Lot 1 - Old Fort Point
A mix of single track and short technical climbs/descents makes this a classic Jasper ride. The crystal clear lakes and vistas are stunning. In the early spring crocuses abound on south facing slopes and garter snakes are often seen by those with sharp eyes as they emerge from their winter burrows near 3rd lake. It is preferable to ride this trail in a more or less clockwise path around the lakes.
To make a longer ride start in town or add Trail 9 to Wabasso lake at the far end of the loop.
