One of my favourite spots to come to when I'm in Jasper. The path that circles around the lake is maintained, lots of birds to listen to and a very peaceful area to get away from the hussle and bussle. Grab a hot beverage, walk...More

Pleasant lake with great trails for walking. Loads of birds and critters in the forest surrounding it. Stacks of parking available. Lots of picnics and family fun happening on the large grassy areas beside the lake.

Lake Annette and Edith were the two prettiest of the five lakes in my opinion. The water is so beautiful you just want to stick your face in and drink it. 😝. They are also a ve short trip from Jasper.

After seeing so many fantastic glacial lakes, this one was distinctly average. We didn't walk around it just drove around in the car.

Given the condition from the BC wildfires, we were still amazed with the beauty this lake has to offer. Would rather stay here where it is not crowded. Not much spaces for a picnic table but can easily put up a table or something where...More

We visited Maligne Lake and canyon in the day and headed to Annette Lake around 5pm to end the day with a swim before heading back to our accommodation in Jasper. We missed the sign from the road down from Maligne and had to u-turn...More

As it is not one of the major attractions in the region, tourism agencies do not take buses and many tourists to it. Take advantage of this situartion and enjoy with no rush the area. It is also a very nice place to take beautiful...More

Yup. Water is cold, but a lot of people kayak or canoe in the lake.

No, I wouldn’t do that with potential wild animal encounter. As well, it’s probably an hour walk, however biking would be very nice.
