In the fall of 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway construction workers stumbled across a cave containing hot springs on the eastern slopes of Alberta's Rocky Mountains. From that humble beginning was born Banff National Park, Canada's first national park and the world's third. Spanning 6,641 square kilometres (2,564 square miles) of valleys, mountains, glaciers, forests, meadows and rivers, Banff National Park is one of the world's premier destination spots.

Get out there early, and you'll miss most of the crowds, especially if you keep heading up to Little Beehive.

Great hike! Easy past the 10 switchbacks of the first mile.

Difficult but well worth it.

Interesting history. Easy hike.

Great trail for a group...nice and wide and fairly easy incline and terrain. Wear good shoes because once at the lake you'll want to explore the boulders and it's far enough from Moraine that it would suck to walk back with a sprained or broken ankle.
