    Directions to Trailhead
    Wabasso Lake

    The trail to Wabasso Lake is a popular hike south of the town of Jasper. The popular campground across the highway is a great jumping off point for this hike. The trail is easy to moderate and manageable for kids due to its minimal elevation gain. Enjoy the marchy lake, and lookout for wildlife!
