We would have liked to have a Trail Map but the dispenser at the Car Park was empty. The signage is not the best and we saw next to nothing of the former coal mining town. All in all it was a nice enough walk...More

Expecting lots to see, we stopped the car and walkes the lower trail. Really not so much to see, although the path is beautiful. Only a few remaining things of the old mine, so....walk there and don't expect too much.

Easy beautiful walk to the very small water fall. Very close to the cabins and hot springs. No remnants of the mine are recognizable. View is amazing, no wild life

There is an " amusement" offering at the beginning of the trail. It's one of those large boarders with 3 people painted on it and the idea is to go behind the board and stick your face into one of the 3 spaces to replace...More

One of Jasper's best kept secrets, stopping here for a walk before heading up to Miette Hot Springs was a perfect way to round out our day!

This trail is found just after the Jasper entrance from edmonton side. There are multiple trail options, the one we did was the longest and hardest to do but the payoff was worth it ( amazing view). There are very simple trails for families and...More
