Today the mountain mavens are meant to talk about our favourite hikes. But, I'm finding it too gosh darn hard to just pick one. I know that's what everyone else is going to do, but for me, it really just depends.
I mean, if I want to see the town and the mountains from above without having to drive too far out of town, I go up behind Pyramid Lake:
If I want to see lots of gorgeous turquoise water and at times feel like I'm in an enchanted forest, I go to the Valley of the Five Lakes:
And if I want to go somewhere close to home, that requires no driving and provides me with plenty of options and routes, I go up on the bench:
Anyway, you get the idea. Jasper is full of trails. In fact, there are 250 kilometres of multi-use trails in the park. So, basically, there are always new places to go and things to see. I guess, if I had to pick a favourite trail, I'd say it's the trail I haven't yet hiked. What I mean is, every time I hike a new trail, it becomes my favourite. There is always something new and beautiful to discover and it's always so much fun to be somewhere I haven't yet been.
What's your favourite hike? And what makes it your fave?
