A day hike past Rockies glaciers and their creations - Canada's third highest waterfall and hidden lakes. Yoho National Park is an incredibly stunning part of the Canadian Rockies. However, many of the area's best natural features are either just a few minutes stroll from a car park (and get the crowds to match) or are reached via strenuous hikes requiring car pick-ups at the end or longer ones requiring overnight camping. This trail hits the middle ground - a good half-day walk that loops back to where you started. Along the way you'll get amongst the mist of the Takakkaw Falls, pass by glacial lakes, and enjoy views of Emerald Glacier and the surrounding mountains and valleys.
