This hike will take you some of Banff National Park’s most scenic lakes and incredible mountain views.
Initially, the trail steadily climbs through the forest with long drawn out switchbacks. Eventually, the trail opens with a scenic waterfall formed by the creek. The trail significantly steepens just past the waterfall.
Continue your climb until you reach Bourgeau Lake. The lake is approximately 7 km miles and 2375 ft of elevation gain from the trailhead. With its emerald water and mountain backdrop, Bourgeau Lake is a perfect picnic lunch/snack spot.
