Pyramid Lake Outlet - Search Nearby - Added by Jonathan Sinclair

Capture a stunning sunrise at Pyramid Lake in Jasper National Park. You'll see the beautiful reflection of Pyramid Mountain in the water. Be sure to arrive early to capture the first light of the day

A visit to Jasper National Park is not complete without a stop at Pyramid Lake to witness the spectacular sunrise.

From the Town of Jasper, take the Pyramid Lake Road all the way until you reach the end of the road, where you'll find the parking lot and the trailhead. The gravel trail is 1.2 kilometers to the Pyramid Lake outlet, where you will reach a small bridge. From here, head down towards the lake, set up your shot and wait for the sunrise to leave you speechless!

After you are finished taking photos, you can continue on the trail to the Pallisades Lookout if interested, or head on back to Jasper.

Walking on a frozen Pyramid Lake in the winter

My friends and I went here in January of 2016 and it was pretty neat!

Make sure and take the trail over the bridge to pyramid island. It's a great quick little hike!

Close to town and beautiful reflections at sunrise. This is a great spot to catch a meteor shower too.
