A place of awe and wonder. These are the western slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Towering rockwalls, spectacular waterfalls and soaring peaks earn the park its name; Yoho is a Cree expression of awe and wonder. Here in the shadow of the Great Divide are the secrets of ancient ocean life, the power of ice and water, and the stories of plants and animals that continue to evolve today. Yoho, named for a Cree word expressing awe, is a park of rock walls, waterfalls and glacial lakes. It's a park with snow-topped mountain peaks, roaring rivers and silent forests. It's a park whose history is bound up with a railroad: spiral tunnels inside mountains and stories of runaway trains. Established in 1886, the park currently spans 1,310 square kilometres (507 square miles) on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia, and borders Banff National Park to the east and Kootenay National Park to the south.

Emerald Lake is a very scenic and beautiful place. We recommend the 5.6km loop trail (easy trail although uneven at times) as there are some really nice spots for viewing the lake at different angles. We also did the Emerald Basin trail which we would rate as moderate but we were slightly disappointed with it. On a positive note, the amphitheatre at the end of the trail offers some nice photo opportunities.

This hike starts off on the same trail as Sherbooke Lake, but splits to the right towards Paget Lookout & Peak. Some long switchbacks till we get to the lookout, and then a scramble to the peak.

A pleasant walk to the Wapta falls, if it's a super hot day, you want to get close to the falls to cool off in the mist.

This was our 1st hike of the 2 week Yoho National Park trip. The trailhead was right behind the lodge we were staying at, right next to Wapta Lake.

Fabulous Hike. I was able to take epic pictures all throughout the trail. We did the trail around the lake and would recommend it to all skill levels.

A small and easy hike but well worth it ! Bring rain gear if your planning to get close !

The size of these falls are, in my opinion, a must see! You can also hike up quite a ways to the falls, climbing over good sized rocks.
