The Devona Lookout is a great place to view the lower Athabasca Valley in
Most of the trail has already been described in Celestine Lake and need not be repeated here. Beyond the campground junction the old road continues to climb another 2.5 km to the old lookout site. The ride back down on a bike is fast, so make lots of noise to alert the bears to your presence.

Government topo 83 E/1 Snaring River @ 1:50,000 or Gemtrek's 'Jasper and Maligne Lake' @ 1:100,000 are good maps for the area can be purchased from the The Friends of Jasper.

Directions:

Drive east of Jasper on Hwy16 for 13km and turn left on the Snaring Road. Follow the Snaring Road for 6km to the end of pavement. Follow the non-gated fire road another 8km to the stop sign where it turns into the Celestine Lake Road, an alternating one way road. When the time is right follow the road another 14km to the parking lot at road's end.


Celestine Lake Road


Open May through September


Hours in: 8-9, 11-12, 14-15 & 17-18hrs


Hours out: 9:30-10:30, 12:30-13:30, 15:30-16:30 & 19:30-20:30hrs


Please Note: The Celestine lake road is a narrow, winding and very rough track, leave the sports car at home. At one point, as the road wraps around the base of Mt Greenock, you are driving along the edge of a cliff with no guard rail. The person in the passenger seat will no doubt be very nervous, use caution.
