“Emerald Lakes”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Don't bypass these two lakes that are just a bit above Jasper. They were two of the prettiest lakes we saw our whole time there. There is a small island in Pyramid Lake and our host in Jasper worked at the National Park and had built the bridge to this island. We met people from Holland there touring and then ran into them 2 more times that day. So fun to travel!!

“Beautiful reflections”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Photographers will love these lakes for the atmosphere and reflections in the early morning (6.30am). The mist is just rising from the lakes and the reflections of the surrounding mountains is spectacular. Remember to wear warm clothing and get out there early.

“Probably a favorite”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We meandered over to these two lakes on a fluke towards the end of our trip. Mistake to not have gone sooner, glad we did go! It is beautiful. Some older structures on the lake, beautiful scenery and a very easy, pleasant stroll rather than Hike. There are trails all around, so if you wanted to really hike, you can. We just took a relaxed pace and loved it.

Great location for sunsets or night shooting/enjoyment. There's a dock and a little store located there.
