An easy and scenic walk along the lake shore of Moraine Lake, one of the most photographed spots in the world!

More of a walk than a hike, but this is arguably the prettiest lake I've ever seen.

Great, easy hike to the other side of the lake and back. The view from the back side of the lake is worth the peaceful hike. Go before 9am to beat the crowds. Once there is too much traffic the park will shut down access to get to the lake.

The Valley of Ten Peaks is the most scenic hike I've accomplished to date. Ice covered mountain peaks and a glacier to boot. Did not have GPS when I went, but the trail is well marked. Most awesome views in Canada. Stayed in Canmore by Banff.

Nice little stroll around the lake.

The view is beautiful and this short walk around the edge of the lake was magical in pouring October rain. This is an easy walk although the unpaved trail cuts through the trees so you need to watch your step.
