Motorcycle Route Author
Written DirectionsTake Trans-Canada Hwy/BC-1 west out of Banff. Continue on AB-93 north to Jasper National Park.
"Arguably the nicest road in Canada. Spectacular vistas cutting through beautiful mountain passes, with more than 100 ancient glaciers. Stop at Lake Louise for a fabulous view behind the hotel. Very crowded parking lot, but ask for the motorcycle parking. Amazing ride."
SceneryThis ride takes you through the heart of the Canadian Rockies past teal glacial lakes. Some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in North America!
Drive EnjoymentGood quality pavement all the way through, fair amount of twists and turns. There might be a fair amount of RV traffic during peak season.
Tourism OpportunitiesNot 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.
