This Route was Made for Walking

Walk circles around Jasper on the 8 km (5 mi) Discovery Trail that rings the town. Shod your tootsies in appropriate footwear, as the trail isn’t cleared of snow (except the short paved portion). Along its south side, the gentle path parallels Connaught Dr. The north part presents moderate ups and downs following contours of Pyramid Bench, and offers nice views of town and three valleys. Interpretive plaques and directional maps guide and give insights on the area. — Lisa Stephens
