Disaster Point Animal Lick

Disaster Point Animal Lick Review

Disaster Point Animal Lick, less than 5 km (3 miles) before Highway 16 from Jasper reaches the turn for Miette Hot Springs, is the most easily accessible spot in the park for encountering bighorn sheep. It's a rare summer moment when the sheep haven't descended from the adjacent steep slopes to lick up the mineral-rich mud, wandering back and forth across the road. You're likely to see numerous cars stopped by the side of the road.
