Features Lake · Views

Family Friendly The trail is short and offers just enough of a climb to be entertaining. The views from the top will delight everyone.

Description

The trail starts near the northern end of the parking area. The trail will head south and away from the parking lot before turning east to wrap around and up the small hill at the northern end of Moraine Lake. From the top you'll have exceptional views of Moraine Lake - one of the most beautiful locations in Banff.
