Written Directions

Take Trans-Canada Hwy/BC-1 west out of Banff. Continue on AB-93 north to Jasper National Park.

Scenery

This ride takes you through the heart of the Canadian Rockies past teal glacial lakes. Some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in North America!

Road Quality

Good quality pavement all the way through, fair amount of twists and turns. There might be a fair amount of RV traffic during peak season.

Roadside Amenities

Not much along the way, so standard Canadian travel rules apply (i.e. fill up every time you get a chance). Longest stretch without gas stations is about 150 klicks between Sasketchewan River Crossing and Jasper.

This is a great stretch of blacktop that runs along, through, and over the Canadian Rockies. Plenty of wildlife, from Mountain Sheep to Bears can be seen/spotted during virtually every trip. Mid week in July/August is the best time to travel (less tourists/RV's on the road. Fuel & food is expensive in places like Saskatchewan Crossing and Lake Louise, so take that into consideration. Also, remember that even in the summer, once the sun goes down in the mountains, it cools off considerably, so pack your gear with that expectation in mind. I have plenty of pics from this area and have ridden hi way 93 quite often. Sometimes solo, and sometimes leading a group of up to 20 bikes.
