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.

One of the two most beautiful lakes I've ever seen, with the other being Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park. Get here early because parking can become virtually impossible if you don't. If you're in Banff National Park, I think this is the #1 destination to see for yourself. it's absolutely stunning! Also, hiking up the glacial creek that feeds Moraine Lake is beautiful, although a pretty rugged hike getting through the thick pines and brush, but it is well worth it! It leads up to the base of the peaks, and there are beautiful meadows with colorful wildflowers all over. It also has some marshland, which is perfect habitat to find moose.

At least 8h hiking to wenkchemna pass. 9,9Km to go up there. It worth!

The most beautiful place in North America; a lifetime memory when my children were still "kids."

The trail around the lake is actually 4.2 km. it is quite the drive to the lake. I imagine this trail that is posted is inclusive of the whole trail to the lake and back.
In the summer months; parking is very limited. If you don't arrive before 9:30 am; you may need to park on the road sometimes many kilometers away from the lake. So arrive early.
lovely little stroll with the most amazing view of the lake. So calm, you will get lost in the peaceful environment.
