We must've stopped at every lake on the Icefields, and I'll always remember Herbert Lake for its beauty, serenity, and sheer natural pleasure.

This is one of the best lakes for a short stop along the way to Jasper. Good for taking really beautiful photos and reflections on the lake. A definite must visit.

Lake Herbert has one of the most beautiful mirror views in Banff. The best time to take a picture is in early morning.

Just follow the sign posts all places of interest are marked along the road. From Banff just set your GPS to Jasper.
