Larch Valley -- Sentinel Pass -- Paradise Valley
Distance: 16.7 km (total)
Elevation gain: 724 m
Start at Moraine Lake and hike up to Larch Valley and then to Sentinel Pass. This is a very scenic hike and there are great views from Sentinel Pass of Wenkchemna Peaks and Mount Fay. Descend down Sentinel Pass into Paradise Valley and hike out Paradise Creek to the Moraine Lake Road. A car shuttle will be required. We will need a group of at least four, preferably six or 10, because of grizzly bear concerns. Bring the usual hiking gear: sturdy boots, extra layers, lunch, and water. This is in a national park so you'll need a park pass. Meet at the FRONT DOORS OF THE PETRO CANADA SERVICE STATION.
