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.

The lake is beautiful, but was a little disappointed on how commercialized the lake was. didn't do my research and was a bit shocked to find out about the hotel being there.

beautiful! wouldn't say it's a hike though, more like a nice walk.

WOW! Absolutely amazing hike. Best we’ve done in the Canadian Rockies. It was definitely worth the 11 km walk from the bus station. We did not have a reservation, although I called one day before and they said there was no place left, we saw the bus driving past us which was half empty....

This trail will be hard to beat, it has it all! The first few kms up the Wiwaxy pass does kick your butt, but in the best way possible as the view is incredible the whole way up. Well worth it. We didn’t complete the full circuit as we were concerned about catching the bus back. We took a turn trough Opabin instead, do check it out, the view of the three lakes surrounded by mountains is very impressive. Would also recommend going to the Mc Arthur lake on the way back, we did it the night before, very beautiful as well. The elevation looks off from my recording, more like 2300 feet.

Done this trail multiple times in all season of the year, worth it every time

This trail offers some amazing view at the lake but also on the lakes from the lookout plateau. Took the west trail up - quite steep climb early on and then it flattens. Definitely worth the effort of getting up.

Did the 2 hours walk from the parking lot or the trailhead. Not many people on trail - but watch out for the shuttles that fly by way too fast. Quite boring walk but not too exhausting. Managed to get on the bus in the way down - $10.

Great trail. Flat and easy in and out. Some more hills further in to complete the loop. Saw a mama bear and her 2 cubs 300m before tea house. They wandered off after we gave them some space.

We arrived pretty early in the morning and could catch a few minutes of calm before the tour buses and crowds arrives. Mostly middle ages tourists walking around with ipads.... The hike isn’t really a hike, rather a long stroll around the lake. The stroll is rather uneventful, but it does bring you a bit further from the crowds an offer a nice view of the lake. We also took the trail up the bassin. The water level being quite low at this time of year the view is not quite as spectacular as it might be in the beginning of the summer, but still quite nice and brings you closer to the glacier. Would not call this an intermediate hike by any means, perhaps if you are a very occasional hiker or tourist. The lakes does look gorgeous but unfortunately the crowds really ruins it for me :-(

I was a bit worried when I drove up to an overflowing parking lot but you quickly leave most people behind. The trail up to the basin is lovely and quiet for the most part. It took me about 45 minutes to the top. The loop around the lake is lovely but lots of people...suited me fine as I was hiking solo and didn’t want to worry about bears.

Stunning waterfall! Must see if you are in the Yoho area.

The trail and drive is definitely worth it! Great hike with great views

For me, The best route of the Canadian rockies. Few people, beautiful trail, incredible views. A ten. As we did not reserve it in time we had to walk 11km to Lake Ohara and from there start the route. But it is done very well in case you don't have a reservation. The most recommended without a doubt.

Would have easily given this trail a 5 had the last ascent through Saddleback highlighted route on the app actually existed. (Note: did the trail in reverse from Moraine Lake) Pros: starting from Moraine leads the walk with a challenging, but energizing climb. Beautiful lake views as you ascend until entering beautiful valley foliage. Sentinel Pass offers dramatic views between two peaks before descending down through a rocky scramble. Paradise Valley is stunning. Cons: as stated above, the last bit of the trail highlighted in red on the app that leads to Saddleback and ultimately Lake Louise simply does not exist. We were directly on top of the red line which was not a trail at all. Anyone who says otherwise has likely taken a different trail at that point. Very disappointing being led into a muddy horse trail when you’re expecting a lovely ascent with views of the lake.

Definitely one of (f not THE) premier hike in the Canadian Rockies.

The switch backs at the beginning will kill you. But once you make it to the top everything is worth it.

The lower section of the trail to the Paget Lookout is moderately steep with lots of exposed roots and rocks. The route to the Peak is a steeper grind up loose scree slopes and for the most part is fairly obvious with lots of cairns to mark the way. Look out for marmots. It took us old guys 1¾ hours from the old fire lookout to get to the top. We actually made it only to the false summit just short of the actual peak. We decided it wasn't worth the effort to scramble back down to the west and up the actual Paget Peak, another 100 m along the ridge. The view nonetheless was spectacular. The trail starts from the Sherbrooke Lake day use area, just west of the Great Divide Lodge (you can start from the lodge which would add 400 m to the hike). The trailhead isn't that obvious; access is over a metal stile and through a gate in the wildlife fencing by the outhouse. Note that since the highway has been twinned, if you're returning east toward Lake Louise, you now have to turn west on Highway 1 toward Field. The first safe turnaround point to is the Spiral Tunnels lookout.

Beautiful way. But who is not there early in the morning, must expect massive crowds. The path is absolutely comfortable and has a part with many roots and stones. When it rains, it is the purest marshland! Partly hard to get around. As surely no "normal" shoes wear. The restaurant by the bridge is just cheeky expensive! A small pizza Margerita 22.-, two sandwich also 20.-. So take something with you.

Worth the traffic to see the spectacular colours of this lake. Turquoise water makes you want to strip down and jump in but it’s packed with tourists. Easy leisurely walk around. Gets a little more off road on the east side as you cross through what feels like a rainforest.

August 30 did this hike the weather was the only drawback, rain as we started off slightly ease off near the amphitheater then started again as we descend the saddle back to trailhead. This hike provides views of Sherbrooke lake , lovely waterfalls, stream crossings, meadow with view of the mountain range, and rocky/bouldering climb to the saddle with nice view of the glaciers .
