Trail 1a Jasper National Park

This project will be assessed with a basic impact assessment. 2019 saw higher than normal rainfall in the valley. Relatively small creeks became larger or diverted to form new water courses. Currently, there is a stream flowing down Trail 1a. This project intends to reconstruct trail tread and divert the water along a 300 m section of the trail, encouraging trail users to stay on the official route. Construction activities include some minor machine-assisted excavation, vegetation clearing, construction with hand tools and material placement.


This map is for illustrative purposes. The markers represent the approximate locations based on available data. More than one marker may be identified for a given assessment.
