Valley of Five Lakes and Wabasso Lake is a 7.4 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Jasper, Alberta, Canada that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from May until October.
One of my favorite hikes in Jasper. Most is a relatively easy hike, but has some steep sections.
Casual loop with crystal clear lakes. Very relaxing, easy up and down as you cross the valley and the ability to connect to other trails and detour the main trail is nice.
Easy and beautiful
Beautiful lakes! Seriously breathtaking. Lots of good spots to stop and eat lunch. We were able to do the full 5 lakes in under 2 hrs. Kept a pretty good pace tho.
Did it with a 3 year old and a 4 year old today. They did great and everyone had a good time!
As a beginner hiker I was a little surprised to see this classified as easy. Very beautiful and calming walk.
I did this on MTB many many years ago.
It was raining and gloomy but we still had fun.
This is a fairly busy trail, even in the shoulder seasons, so be aware. Some tough sections that can test your skills, depending on which of the trail options you choose.
As others have indicated, this hike is very busy! I went later in the afternoon (after 4pm) and it wasn't too crowded. There are beautiful views available; not only of the lakes, but also of the mountain ranges in the distance. Lots of bikes, would have loved to taken my bike on this trail - next time!
This was my first experience in the Rocky Mountains. Myself and two other friends did the valley of the five lakes trail.. Had an awesome time lots of great views. Nice easy hike.
This hike is super commercial, as it is located so close to the town of Jasper and is a short well groomed trail.
If you are looking for a quick loop that gets you into nature, take this hike as anyone of any fitness level can complete it in a short period of time. The five lakes are beautiful, and I highly suggest working your way from left to right. It can get busy during the weekends, so your best time to go is a week day.
This is a great hike, with 5 different lakes. Best time to go is early morning as after 11 am the parking lot is full, and the highway will have a hundred vehicles on the roadside. The trail itself in some areas only holds 1 person at a time to it is best to go early
This trail is very busy due to the proximity to Jasper.
