From Jasper townsite, a 35km (22 mile) drive east will take you to the commemorative plaque and viewpoint overlooking Jasper House National Historic Site. Follow the short, beautiful trail to a wooden platform with interpretive panels and look out across the Athabasca River to a clearing where only the footprint of log buildings from Jasper House remain. Jasper National Park is a four hour drive west of Edmonton, and five hour drive northwest of Calgary.
