If these lakes were in another location they would be considered stunning but they do not really compare to other scenery in the Rockies. Nice enough for a drive up from Jasper in a summer evening for an hour. There appear to be several walking...More

We visited by car and took a short walk. The lakes and their setting is spectacular. What was nice was that in the spring there were not hundreds of tourists (as at Lake Louise). Just a few noisy Japanese who seemed to want to break...More

We didn't go into the cabins or the shops/stores. I use the primitive facilities. We did enjoy sitting on the public benches and looking over the lakes at the scenic views. The length of this stop varies by the time you take to medicate.

These lakes are such a unique color. The views were stunning. Make sure you get out of the car and walk along the lakes.

There is nothing quite as spectacular as an early morning in the Rockies on a pristine lake with the mountains in the background. This is a spot well worth visting.

Patricia Lake is ok, however Pyramid Lake is the best one, you can get some amazing pictures depending on the time of the day and where the sun is

While most visit these very attractive lakes by road, there is much to be said for getting there on foot using the excellent trail network around Jasper. For example, from Car Pak P3 on Bonhomme Street in Jasper, follow trail 2 northwards, crossing the Pyramid...More

There are places to park along the Patricia Lake road. If you go further on to Pyramid Lake there is also parking close to the resort there. Lots of trails everywhere.

Sorry I was there in Winter and the lake was frozen, but I do remember our tour guide pointing out that canoeing was available and there were bike shops in jasper for bike rental during the summer.
