Bow Glacier Falls Trail runs along the shores of Bow Lake. Featuring the ice-blue glacial Bow Lake and stunning panoramic views of its headwaters. The trail starts at the Num-Ti-Jah Lodge just off HWY 93 (Icefields parkway). It wraps along the shore to the southwest corner of the lake, meeting a long rustic staircase that will take you up the hill into a valley where you can venture over to Bow Glacier Falls.

Great views of the lake from the side and rear. We did not make it to the falls due to a snowstorm blowing in. Would definitely do it again. Some parts of the trail were snow covered and slick, so proper shoes/boots and/or poles recommended.

Beautiful area! Easy hike with one steep section (has stairs). Beginning by the lake can be quite busy but the trails become quieter the further you go.

Fairly easy trail with only one steep section. Very tranquil walking along the lake shore. The basin featuring the waterfall is pretty awesome and caps off a nice walk. Saw a decent sized black bear on the way back.

The ice fields are so beautiful. This is an easy few hour hike to be around water.
