A quick, easy, and highly rewarding view. I go back to Moraine Lake every time I'm in Canada and next year I'll be bringing my hammock to enjoy the view away from all of the tourists. You can also climb up on the giant rock and get some views above the tourists taking photos on this path.

An easy trail to the most beautiful view of the valley of the ten peaks and Moraine Lake. In my opinion it's even better than Lake Louise. There are lots of places to move around, take pictures, and enjoy the view. In the morning there is a great reflection of the mountains on the lake too!

In the summer the parking lot fills up quickly and rarely opens throughout the day. We arrived at 7:40am and it was already packed. Try and arrive before 8am before the parking attendants get there so you can snag a spot or wait for someone to leave. There is no Park shuttle to Moraine lake in the summer but there are private tour buses.

Very easy. Takes a maximum of 15min round trip. Too crowded but the views were amazing. I wouldn't exactly come back just for it tho, unless I'm touring someone around.
