Several steep pitches and some loose gravel sections along with a couple of tight switchbacks connect Cabin Lake and Jasper. As a climb this is a quick punchy way to get up to the Pyramid bench, Descending this trail is quick with some fun side hill. Several great view points and its connection with the Saturday Night Lake loop make this a popular trail.
