Best of Jasper Map
Gem Trek’s waterproof and tear-resistant Best of Jasper map is primarily designed for visitors who are going to be in Jasper for a short period of time and want to make the most of their stay. The main map is a detailed relief-shaded topographic map of the Jasper area.
On the back of the Best of Jasper map are descriptions of recommended sights, museums and scenic drives, with hours of operation and admission fees noted 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, noting 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 of sights and hikes on the back of the map.
