Route starts at Parking Lot 15 - Valley of the Five Lakes
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 consider adding Trail 9 out to Wabasso Lake as part of your outing or take the longer loop around the lakes by using Trail 9 and Trail 9a unstead of 9b.
