Well worth the bike ride or car ride to Pyramid and Patricia Lakes! Just a short car ride(about 7 minutes) bike ride (about 15-20 minutes) depends on how much cycling you do normally. There are small beaches around the lake. But I think the water may be somewhat chilly. Haha ( there was still some ice around the edges) There... More

Beautiful, gorgeous lakes surrounded by spectacular mountains. The view is a million dollar view. Just so serene, peaceful, relaxing, and gorgeous. Great place to have a picnic and enjoy the wildlife and the beauty of the lakes. Great beautiful colors of the lakes are amazing. Glacier lakes.

These lakes are only a 5-10 minute drive from Jasper, but unless you are going to swim or enjoy the mosquitoes lakeside, there is little else here.

Nice places to go for a few hours. Pyramid Lake has a gorgeous view of Pyramid Mountain, which is one of my favourite of the big 5 surrounding Jasper. Take out a canoe or kayak, go for a hike or just sit down and drink in the views. Either way, you can't go wrong stopping by either of these 2... More

Just a short <15 minute drive from Jasper center, these lakes and the surrounding mountains are definitely worth a visit. I only had time for a quick drive up-and-back but even that short trip was memorable. The narrow road is cut through a dense forest that is almost magical to drive through. Once you get to the lakes the views... More

This is one of the beautiful places round Jasper. The little island is a lovely place and you can go over a little bridge to access this small island. The water is clear, but pretty could. It's hard for swimming.

We always visit these lakes when we come to Jasper! This was different visiting in the spring with the lakes still frozen the views are amazing. The little island in pyramid lake is a nice little walk good for the whole family and wheelchair accessible. Our 2 toddlers had fun. Definitely a must see and it's free!

No reason to not check these two lakes out, they make beautiful pictures. Road is on the back side of town, will take you up the mountain, maybe a 15 min drive up. Keep driving on the road til it ends, the last stop will be the one that has the trail out to the highly photographed Pyramid Lake Island.... More

Worth a visit, although lakes were frozen still very impressive. Car park and outhouses available. Great views back towards the mountains, worth a walk to a small island with a bridge across.
