It takes a special landform to pull focus next to the dramatic beauty of a mountain. After all, the Rockies are kind of attention hogs. But a tumbling waterfall always seems to grab attention, even when surrounded by the pointiest of geological wonders.
It thus seems almost greedy that Jasper National Park has plenty of both. And although there’s many gems waiting to be discovered in the backcountry, most of the waterfalls on this list are only a short walk from a parking lot, making them accessible sightseeing spots for young and old alike.
7 Geraldine Waterfalls
The Geraldine Lakes Trail is a family-friendly path that passes through fir forest to a beautiful blue-green lake. Follow the trail along the west shore to the other side of the lake, where a waterfall can be seen in the distance. There’s more waterfalls on the way to the second Geraldine Lake but the path gets more technical, steep and bouldery. Take care on the way!
