Parks Canada placed seven sets of red Adirondack chairs in quiet and scenic locations throughout Jasper National Park for visitors to enjoy the exquisite mountain and lakeside vistas. Each location shares a great story about the landscape and history.

Where are the Red Chairs in Jasper National Park?

The Red Chairs are for you to discover. While some chairs are easy to find, others require more of an adventure.

There are two ways to find them:

 

1. Print a map - and try to find the chairs in these seven locations around the park:

  • Lake Edith Day Use Area
  • Pyramid Overlook Trail (2b)
  • Lower Maligne Day Use Area
  • Old Fort Point Trail on the “second summit”
  • Whistlers Summit Trail 
  • Wilcox Pass Trail
  • Valley of the Five Lakes between Third and Fourth Lakes.

Follow some of these direction pointers when you are out on the trail to help you find them.

2. Have a GPS? The UTM Coordinates are:

  • Lake Edith Day Use Area UTM: 11U E 429628.4; N 5862555.1
  • Pyramid Overlook Trail (Trail 2b) UTM: 11U E 426442.2; N 5864364.2
  • Lower Maligne River Day Use area UTM: 11U E 440631.4; N 5860893.1
  • Old Fort Point Trail UTM: 11U E 429638.9; N 5858135.6
  • Whistlers Summit Trail UTM: 11U E 424036.047; N 5853584.000 
  • Wilcox Pass Trail UTM: 11U E 486433; N 5785835.2
  • Valley of the Five UTM: 11U E 432213.1; N 5852319.7

Where did the Red Chair idea come from?

Our friends at Gros Morne National Park installed 18 sets of chairs around their park almost two years ago. Visitors have been seeking them out and sharing their chair adventures ever since. The program is now growing to include a number of other national parks, and Jasper is one of them.
