May 25, 2014: Horseshoe Lake Curvy Tree


Horseshoe Lake is located about 3km north of Athabasca Falls or 27km south of Jasper townsite on Icefields Parkway Highway 93. On a windless day, the lake is well known for its crystal clear reflection of mineral-rich colorful cliff onto its turquoise emerald water surface. In a shape of a horseshoe, the lake is a popular hiking destination in Jasper National Park. The hiking trail is relatively short and flat. It can be a great outdoor venue for wedding photography, engagement photo shoot, selfie portrait, and family group picture.

You may see adventure seekers do cliff jumping or diving in Horseshoe Lake, but it’s very dangerous because the depth of water varies with seasons and weather. A few people had paralyzed or even died in the past.

On the other hand, since it’s a short distance from trailhead to the lake, it may be possible for kayaking and canoeing if you can carry the boat there.
