Located just a short 7 kilometer hike from downtown Jasper is Pyramid Lake. For those that don’t want to hike, there is a winding road that will also get you to the lake. Pyramid Lake is a popular spot in Jasper National Park for picnicking, horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, windsurfing and boating in the summer. In the winter you can try cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating on the lake. There is a footbridge that leads to a small island in the middle of the lake from which you can enjoy a spectacular view of Pyramid Mountain. On a sunny day the mountain shines an exquisite orange-red because of its iron-rich rock. Even on a cloudy day you can still see the beautiful color of the mountain.
