“Great views”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Better than actual Lake Louise for views. I was told that road was narrow and not to go with my camper trailer. Road is fine and even buses used it.

“Go after 5 p.m.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Often as overrun as Lake Louise, go after 5 to avoid the crowd and to take some good pictures. Worth visiting.

Just a quick update, the lake is still frozen but scenery is nice, you can reach the shore and take good picture. Trails are snowy.

“Another over Crowded Lake”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Another Lake View point that see buses left right and center. Best time to visit is later in the afternoon when they are less buses.

Also know as the Valley of the Ten peaks. So very good short hikes in the area and further back down the road is some much larger hikes that are well worth completing.

This is also the starting point of the scramble up Temple Mtn on the right hand side.

“Sheer beauty”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

I visited here many years ago while visiting family in Alberta. It is indeed awe-inspiring and not commercialised. Pure peace and tranquility. Take a boat trip and sit back and lose yourself in the scenery.
