Description

From Four Point campground, which is a lovely spot beside the Brazeau River, the Brazeau Loop route continues down the valley.

It more or less follows the river all the way to Brazeau Lake, which is one of the largest backcountry lakes in Jasper National Park.

Downhill hiking makes for an easier day, though rather long.

The route mapped here goes to Brazeau Lake campground, which has comfortable sites in a stunning location, near a gravel beach at the lake’s outlet.

If permits aren’t available there, or if you wish to make your day 2 km shorter, you could stay at Brazeau River campground instead.
