NOTE: Bow Summit and the Peyto Lake trails and viewpoint will be closed for rehabilitation for part of 2019. We invite you to explore some of the many other breathtaking places on the Icefields Parkway.

Looking for a view from the edge? Check out these roadside attractions:

Herbert Lake A photographer’s favourite. The still waters of Herbert Lake provide a perfect panoramic reflection of the stunning Main Range peaks, including Mount Temple. The picnic area provides an ideal place for a picnic stop. Google Street View
 
Crowfoot Glacier When this glacier was named a century ago, it looked like a three-toed crowsfoot. Since then, one toe has melted, and the middle toe is slowly disappearing. Google Street View
 
Athabasca Glacier A magical area that can be seen from the road, explored with a commercial guide or visited on a special bus tour. Do not walk on the glacier; crevasses and other hazards can be deadly. Google Street View
 
Need to stretch your legs? Try one of these short strolls:

Bow Lake and Bow Glacier The source of the Bow River, Bow Lake is one of the more scenic and accessible lakes for fishing. Google Street View
 
Bow Summit and Peyto Lake (Closed for part of 2019.) A short uphill walk from the parking area leads to a view of the glacial-fed, brilliantly turquoise Peyto Lake. Google Street View
 
Sunwapta Falls A torrent of plunging water not far from the highway, Sunwapta Falls are just one of the many waterfalls in Jasper created by hanging valleys. Google Street View
 
Athabasca Falls Feel the spray of the Athabasca River as it thunders into the canyon below. Stay behind railings and on designated trails. The rock beyond is slippery and dangerous. Google Street View
Looking for adventure? Step into the wild with one of these classic day hikes:

Helen Lake 6.0 km one way; 455 m elevation gain; 4 to 5 hr round trip Trailhead: across from Crowfoot Glacier Viewpoint. A breathtaking lake in a valley abounding with alpine wildlife and grand vistas.
 
Parker Ridge5.4 km return; 250 m elevation gain/loss; 3 hr round trip Trailhead: 9 km south of the Icefield Centre. After a series of switchbacks you’ll be rewarded with dramatic views of the Saskatchewan Glacier.
 
Wilcox Pass 2.4 km (1 hr) return to first viewpoint, 8 km (2-3 hrs) return to the pass. Trailhead: 3 km south of Icefield Centre at Wilcox Campground. Rise quickly above treeline to the expansive meadows of this glacier-carved landscape.
 
Valley of the Five Lakes 4.5 km loop; 66 m elevation gain/loss; 2 hours Trailhead: 9 km south from Jasper on Highway 93. Five small, brilliantly blue-green lakes are the highlights of this outing, considered a local family favourite.
Looking for backcountry information? Refer to Jasper National Park Backountry camping or Banff National Park Backcountry camping

Time for lunch? Visit a scenic picnic site:

Bow Lake Enjoy your lunch at one of the most breathtaking lakes in the Rockies. A vibrant blue colour set against a magnificent mountain backdrop.
 
Coleman Creek Sit next to the edge of the water and listen to the relaxing gurgle of the river. Look for mountain goats on the cliffs.
