After seeing the rustic 1914 Jasper Information Centre (Map 5, 15N), cross Miette Ave to visit Den Wildlife Museum animal specimens (Whistler’s Inn’s lower level). Cross Connaught Dr to the Jasper Heritage Railway Station, a working station since 1925 and designated historic site for its arts and crafts architecture. Two Brothers totem pole and 1923 CNR steam locomotive 6015 are out front. After coffee at The Other Paw, follow Discovery Trail that circles town. Walk as much of the 8.3-km (5.1-mi) loop as you like—the trail’s three sections have signs that interpret railway history (go southwest), peaks and people (go northwest), and nature (other side of town). Back downtown, find the Old Firehall across Patricia St. North on Patricia St and left on Pyramid Lake Rd is the charming wood, red brick and stone Jasper Lutheran Church, the town’s oldest. Continue past the Jasper Activity Centre and turn left onto Bonhomme St. Across from the Jasper Aquatic Centre is the Jasper-Yellowhead Museum with fur trade, mountaineering and park history exhibits. Return to Patricia St and Connaught Dr for downtown shopping, dining and pubs.
