Best of Jasper Map
Gem Trek’s BEST OF JASPER MAP is primarily designed for visitors who are going to be in Jasper National Park for a short period of time and want to make the most of their stay by exploring the immediate area around the town of Jasper. We work with the town of Jasper and Parks Canada to ensure that this map is up to date and accurate. This waterproof and tear-resistant map includes all hiking trails around the town in a distinctive and detailed relief-shaded format.
On the back of the Best of Jasper Map are descriptions of recommended sights, museums and scenic drives. Hours of operation are included to make it easier to plan your day. We’ve also included a hand-picked list of the best six easy walks and day hikes in the area. We note the highlights of each trail, as well as distance, elevation gain and directions to the trailhead. Six colour photos and three inset maps, including a town map of Jasper, accompany the descriptions on the back of the map.
Like all Gem Trek maps, the Best of Jasper Map features detailed cartography and accurate hiking trails with distances, elevation gain, and directions to the trailhead noted. On the back of the map are descriptions of the sights, museums and scenic drives near the town of Jasper.
