Route Description for Punchbowl Falls Hike
This short 0.2 km 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 3.1 km Pocahontas Trail or the 3.2 km Pocahontas Upper Loop.
