Move with the Mountains

We’re sure if you’re a Jasper veteran you have seen all the go-to sights including Athabasca Falls, Sunwapta Falls and Malgine Canyon. However, we recommend checking them out again. This time of year presents the opportunity to as watch these majestic falls start to melt you get to see the beginning of the winter wonderland start to give way to new life and springtime.
If you’re feeling up for a hike, we recommend staying lower in the valley as the higher you get the more snow you will encounter. A couple to get you started are:
Easy | old fort point circuit | 3.8 km | dog friendly
A local’s favourite, Old Fort Point, is a quick jaunt to the summit (30 minutes) or you can take the long road and do the full loop. There are trail signs located at the base, make sure to check them before trekking out.
Moderate | overlander trail | 15.5 km one-way | dog friendly
Overlander Trail is a get way to explore the valley, either by foot or bike. You can park a vehicle at either the north or south trailhead, and drive the other around to the opposite end for a hike to your vehicle. This trail can be accessed easily from the Lodge as it is a short drive up Maligne Lake Road. Choose your level of activity from a short hike taking in the open views and meadows to a full day of hiking (31 KM).
Hard | whistlers trail | 15.4 km | dog friendly
Best used between March until October, this trail a travelers favourite. We would suggest going one way and riding the tram the other way (opens March 26, 2021). This mountain peak can be viewed from almost anywhere in town or at the Lodge and showcases views of the entire valley. Ask our concierge team about the best time of day to head up to this hike.
Days spent in the mountain, feed the soul and empty the belly. End your day with an intimate dinner fireside in the Emerald Lounge or handmade pasta at Orso Trattoria*.
