Mountain Biking 20-mile loop / Saturday Night Lake Loop

*****   Add a review
#10 of 219 mountain bike trails in Alberta
#1,298 in the world

a climb either way, preferred direction is counter clockwise, There are sections of this trail that are challenging due to rocks, roots and short muddy sections, all at once. It is a ride for the a intermediate rider and up just due to the climbing and variety of trail conditions. It is well worth it. There are also some other trails that spur off of the 20-Mile Loop.

Getting there
When on the main road that goes in and out of Jasper turn off of it onto Pine. Where Pine naturally turns to the right into Bonhomme, you actually want to turn left. There are nice looking row houses along the hill side and at the west end of them, there is a gravel road to the right. The parking lot is just up the hill. There are the two trail heads here. On the right, up the hill, is the counter clockwise one and on the left down a slope and over a bridge is the clockwise direction.

Rider questions

Q: How long to hike
A: To hike, well it is 20 miles and it is uphill almost the whole way to the lake. I guess if you are a hiker you know how fast it would take you. Most hikers go in over night. There is a campground up there. You may have to book in though in town,

    if you want a good solid day of challenge, go for it. There is a lot of climbing but there is a lot of coming down too. If you get out on this trail before the trail crew does, have a saw and add a few hours to your trip. Or just lift your bike over the fallen stuff. We did do a pretty thorough clean up in May or June 2015, at least 22 trees. I believe the trail crew were out the next week... lol

    I haven't been on this trail in it's entirety this season, however the Jasper Trail Alliance (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jasper-Trail-Alliance/168509399845259) cleaned up this trail on August 14, 2014

    I did this in it's entirety in 2012, I thought I would have to camp out as I wasn't in good enough shape. I have done both sides on different days and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The scenery is, once again, stunning. The trail has it's challenges but it is worth it. Afterwards you can go purchase a cool t-shirt at Freewheel Cycle that has it on it.
