Lake Louise weekend

  • Needs a date

  • HI Lake Louise

    111 Lake Louise Drive, Lake Louise, AB (map)

    51.417515 -116.215935

  • * This event is still being planned. Still trying to settle on the exact date, accomodations, etc.


    When? Late Spring/early summer, at the height of wildflower season. May want to do this over a long weekend.

    Hikes to do:

    [Moraine and Consolation Lake]

    Easy half day hike 
    6 km (4 mi) return trip 
    90 m (300 ft) elevation gain
    Current park regulations may require a group size of 4 or more people on this trail due to grizzly bear activity.

    We do sunrise at Moraine Lake and then head out to Consolation Lake.

    This pretty and short Consolation Lake trail seems to capture imaginations. It begins at one exquisite mountain lake — Moraine — and ends at another — Consolation.  The forest in between is filled with a magical miniature world of lichens, mushrooms, moss-covered logs, grouseberry and maybe even... grouse!


    [Paget Lookout]

    Moderate full day hike
    7 km (4.5 mi) return trip
    518 m (1700 ft) elevation gain

    Located right on the Great Divide, the old Paget fire lookout boasts impressive views of the surrounding peaks, including one of the biggest drops in the Canadian Rockies - the north face of Mt. Stephen. The trail winds its way up through a varied sub-alpine forest and across avalanche paths, ending high above the valley. This is a quiet, beautiful trail.

    [Stanley Glacier]

    moderate full day hike
    8.4 km (5.5 mi) return trip
    365 m (1200 ft) elevation gain

    As of 2003, the Stanley Glacier trail has become one of the most interesting day hikes in the Rockies. A wildfire set the ecological clock back in time. The result is surprisingly beautiful! Flowers bloom prolifically in the newly fertilized soil, their brilliant colours standing out against a black background. Unusual plants like liverworts thrive and each trip yields new surprises. The trail leads from fire to ice, ending in a dramatic setting with the Stanley Glacier hanging above.

    Dr. Imran you should start deciding on the date for this (and other events too). I think the places fill up fast.

      On the serious note, I think early in August the group has no schedule, so maybe it - a suggestion
