Day 5 — Bald Hills & Opal Hills - Lookout Point
Bald Hills View

I was getting into the swing of things. Another two hike day planned in another area of Jasper National Park. The Bald Hills and Opal Hills hikes are basically are on opposite sides of a valley and off I went.

Day 5 — Bald Hills & Opal Hills

  • Grazing

    Jasper National Park The next day, I pass by some deer grazing on my way to the Bald Hills and Opal Hills trails.

  • Wispy Clouds from Bald Hills

    Bald Hills, Jasper National Park Looking over the tree tops on the Bald Hills hike, overlooking another valley to some partially snowy peaks. The wispy clouds add a nice touch too.

  • Baldness

    Bald Hills, Jasper National Park Bald Hills - I can see where the name for this hike came from. The tops look quite devoid of anything but dirt and rock.

  • Bald Hills View

    Bald Hills, Jasper National Park Another angle on the Bald Hills hike. This time the peaks are not as "bald", but the trees are clearly thinning out up here. They're quite stunted even if they manage to grow.

  • Maligne Lake Among the Mountains

    Bald Hills, Jasper National Park A bit over-exposed, but can see part of Maligne Lake. It's a rather long lake and it keeps going for bit.

  • Maligne Lake Overlook

    Opal Hills, Jasper National Park On the other side on the Opal Hills trail, another look at the long Maligne Lake.

  • Across the Valley

    Opal Hills, Jasper National Park Shifting back from the view of Maligne Lake, this view shows the Bald Hills on the other side of the valley.

  • Distant Mountain Ranges

    Opal Hills, Jasper National Park Returning via the Opal Hills trail gives views into some more distant ranges, with a distinctively different formation. These mountains have much sharper ridges and are more defined than the other ones in the area.

  • Maligne Lake

    Maligne Lake, Jasper National Park Having completed both Bald Hills and Opal Hills trail, I take a little tour along Maligne Lake where boats and canoes launch.
