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.

Easy to moderate hike. A very nice view from start to finish. Took the dog with me with no trouble. Just under 3 hours.

Short hike, mainly flat until the last bit until you reach the "steps" up to the old glacier moraine. Bring bug spray!

Beautiful scenery the entire way and not too crowded. I'd rate this hike as easy - just need to have careful footing in areas where the trail is a little washed out. Word of caution - make sure you wear plenty of bug spray and are well covered. There were swarms of mosquitoes and despite wearing bug spray, we both got a lot of bites.
