Looking for things to do near Edson

I'm staying with friends in Edson for 10 days and wonder if anyone has any ideas on what to do.

I'll be having a good visit with my friends and I'm sure they will have great ideas on what to do.

But I wonder if anyone knows any hidden treasures to do.

I won't be going for overnight trips.. but staying in Edson at their place. and enjoying being there ... but lookinf for any ideas...

I don't want to make any assumptions, so I'll point out the obvious. Edson is near Jasper National Park. (You mention no overnight trips, so I guess Via rail to there is out; trains don't run daily). Here's a site with some ideas: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g154917-c16200/Jasper…

Besides day trip drives for all the mountain scenery, there's Miette Hot Springs in that area.


Calgary, Alberta...

There's also William Switzer Provincial Park, which is located north of Hinton, on Hwy #40.

Abtraveller, Hmmm, maybe I could make it in one overnight on VIA!!!

Thanks for the ideas. Yes, Jasper is on our list for sure. We did that in a day trip a couple of years ago. We were staying in Edson for a couple of days. This time I'm visiting for longer.

Thanks Judy for the name of the park. I'm not familiar with it. I'll check it out.
