“A classic Banff hike leading through larch meadows to a high mountain pass with sweeping views.”— Tony Redford
Features Birding · Fall Colors · Lake · River/Creek · Spring · Views · Wildflowers · Wildlife · Commonly Backpacked
Family Friendly Gentle trail. Good for beginner to moderate backpackers.
Eventually you break into the larch meadows where the larches are stunning in the fall and the views begin to open up. From the first bit of the meadows, you the continue west for approximately 1.5 km and gain another few hundred meters of elevation before you reach Healy Pass with truly breath-taking views of the Rocky Mountains. Continuing past the pass will lead you to Egypt Lake, with the basin and valley around it providing endless backpacking/hiking opportunities.
