  • Make sure to go right at the first junction to go to the peninsula. The left has some great views but there's a good bit of scrambling. If you do go left, don't go further along the trail once it star...  more »
  • This lake is literally hiden before tourists. No signs visible from the road. I assume this is on purpose since I heard there were some injuries in the past. But that is the reason we enjoyed even mor...  more »
  • Just beautiful!! The color of the water, the cliffs. Peacefulness of the place. The water is a little chilly. Lol

  • Usually pretty quiet and has great scenery, even on cloudy days. I go up by the cliff jumping and explore the rocks with my dog! Obviously it's extremely cold water. Only swimming on those +30 days.
  • Beautiful Lake with some steep rocky banks. This is where to go if you like cliff diving. There's varying heights to jump from from fun for 6 year olds all the way up to heights only a 20-something invincible person would do. A fun place to visit, but be careful as apparently the Jasper Emergency gets frequent visitors from here.
  • A little easy hike in through trees over rocks and roots. You pass by the smaller end of the horseshoe and a bit more of a walk and you find yourself on the edge of steep cliffs with the bluest lake deeper than you expect to see.
  • This lake is beautiful and quiet. Perfect shoreline and glassy water.
  • A lake, it was wet and scenic. A little crowded.
