Whether it’s a family-friendly outing or you’re connecting to another cruisy trail, the Lac Beauvert Road between Old Fort Point and Lac Beauvert remains closed to vehicles from early November to the end of June. This flat stretch of paved road links Old Fort Point to pristine Lac Beauvert, with privies on either end of the road.

Challenging cycling

Looking for an opportunity to test your physical fitness on this steep and winding road? Park at the bottom of the Cavell Road, and from bottom to top, cyclists gain 550 m of elevation in 14 kilometres – certainly not for the faint of heart, but it’s a local favourite for Jasper’s avid cyclists. Mark your calendar and enjoy this spectacular location on two wheels.
