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.

A moderately challenging hike with persistent elevation gain. Take your time and drink in the scenery! The trail leads through gorgeous forest and is well maintained, but vegetation becomes quite sparse as you ascend: remember to bring sunscreen.

Visitors arriving to the viewing area will be met with jaw-dropping panoramic vistas across the valley floor, as well as the dramatic mountain peaks surrounding.

If you have the energy and agility, scramble up the rocks beyond the lookout hut and journey upwards to the edge of the tree line.

Highly enjoyable, a "must-do" if you are in the area!
