Trailhead Directions

Take TransCanada Hiway to Lake Louise. Take off-ramp into L.L. Go South through the 4way stop, under the train tracks and up the road to the Chateau Fairmont Lake Louise. Approximately 2km from the highway you will see a road turning to the left (SouthEast) signed Moraine Lake Road, turn down here. In the winter, park at the road closed area which is only 100m or so.

Hike Directions

Climbing steadily, this trail includes both gently rolling and hilly stretches. Tracksetting ends at a viewpoint of Consolation Valley and the Ten Peaks. Beyond the viewpoint, the road crosses large avalanche paths. Travel beyond this point requires avalanche training and equipment.

This was a great cross country trail that wasn’t too difficult. It would be nice to continue all the way to the lake but unfortunately, there is avalanche risk after the viewpoint.

    Beautiful photos! Looks like a trail I might be able to do, if I were out there in the winter. Sorry I lost track of your blog for so long.
