Old Fort Point is a favourite short hike that will challenge your small-summit abilities with a few steep grades and great panoramic lookouts over the town of Jasper and Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.
Directions: Begin at The Boathouse (facing the lake) and follow the trail to the left. At the Lac Beauvert parking area, follow the road a short distance to trail 7c (on the right hand side), connecting to trail 7. Turn left onto trail 7 and follow it to the base of Old Fort Point where the ascent begins at a set of stairs. Come back down the same way, or go down the backside of the mountain to complete a loop. There is also a parking lot at the base of Old Fort Point that can be accessed from Highway 16.
