We did not go to the Burgess shale to see the fossils, we did the triangle hike which is Burgess Pass, Yoho Pass, Emerald Lake. This is rather demanding 20km, 880m elevation gain (and loss) hike. A parks Canada officer suggested that we start with the most difficult part from Emerald Lake to Burgess Pass and go from there, which makes it easier on the knees (this is the opposite of what Hikes in the Canadian Rockies book says).
Everywhere you look you are for amazing views treat along the way. Must see!
