Ran 2 miles out 2 miles back on this trail. Very nice, great views. Would love to do much more.

Did the first half of the trail in April to the base of the Aylmer Pass trail. Loved the scenery - saw lots of deer and goats (and no bears!). Will definitely be coming back to do it again in September!

A beautiful lake with many activities including a lake cruise and kayaking. A great picnic spot. You can hike around the entire lake, but it would probably take you a long time. There is also a trailhead to Stewart Canyon on the Lake Minnewanka trail.

Easy to medium hike but had to turn back because of bear tracks on the snow. Not expert to know when the bear past the area. Met only hand full of hikers.
