Moab Lake

Set high in the Canadian Rockies, within the Jasper National Park, the road to the popular fishing spot is totally unpaved, meandering along the Whirlpool River. It’s called Range Road 280B (Moab Lake Road). The road is rough in parts, so it is slow going.

The drive is very scenic and there are a few pretty spots to stop at. Starting at the paved AB-93A, the drive is 6.8km (4.22 miles) long. It’s navigable by passenger vehicles but high clearance is recommended. It’s usually closed during the winter (mid-October to mid-April/May).
