Description

Added by Matt Clark

This is a scenic 2.5km to 14km ride in Jasper National Park. The road is closed from the end of summer up until during the late winter early spring months.

Maligne Lake Rd can be explored after February 28. The late start to the season is due to avalanches and Caribou migrations during the early stages of winter. There is an abundance of trail, both short and long that start from Maligne Lake carpark ranging from 2.5km to 14km and vary from moderate to difficult in ability.

Getting There:
Take the 5km drive East of the town of Jasper before turning right onto Maligne Lake Rd. Follow this road for 43km before you reach Maligne Lake.

Reviews

I live in Jasper year round so just a side note; Maligne Lake Road is open all winter long-just closures for heavy snowfall and avalanches. The right hand side of the road is closed for Caribou habitat :)
