Emerald Lake is in Yoho National Park in British Columbia. It is 10-20 minutes away from Takakkaw Falls, Spiral Mountains, and Natural Bridge. It is 30 minutes from Lake Louise and Lake Moraine in Banff National Park in Alberta.
It was well worth the drive to come to this lake. It is just gorgeous. There is also a small gift shop and rental paddle boats.
Keep in mind that the weather in the mountains can be terrible at different elevations and angles. You are already 5000 feet in the air, so you are in the clouds. When a storm comes in, there is no getting away from it. We did not have good weather, so I felt we were cheated because we could not walk around.
