The extremely short Punchbowl Falls trail is well marked and suitable for all abilities. It is a great lookout point near the Pocahontas campground and Miette Hot Springs areas. This route is connected to other trails in the area and can be easily extended. It’s a quick and easy place to stretch the legs if you are passing through.

Punchbowl Falls Trail Description

This short 0.1mi hike is more of a lookout or viewpoint trail than a hike. You likely won’t get your heart rate going here, but it sure is worth the stop. Take some time to stretch your legs part way between Jasper and Miette Hot Springs.

From the parking pullout, follow the clear trail into the forest. You will cross a short wooden bridge before reaching the falls. Enjoy the peaceful lookout and return to the car. This trail can be joined with the 1.9mi Pocahontas Trail or the 2.0mi Pocahontas Upper Loop.
