Pyramid Mountain Lake Hike Map

Pyramid Lake is the name for the larger lake near Jasper, at the very bottom of Pyramid Mountain. The lake reached on this hike is different. It's a tarn tucked into a narrow basin on the mountain's north side. You can get there by a long hike from Pyramid Lake, or by biking the fire road then hiking up the drainage. Views from this lake are sublime and the place is never crowded.



Hiking along trails with some uneven terrain and small hills. Small rocks and roots may be present.
