Yoho National Park and Emerald Lake

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • * This event is still being finalised. Still trying to determine the exact date and accomodations etc.

    When? Late summer.


    Let's go to the place where my picture-taking ways got me kicked out of the other hiking club a couple of years ago. :)

    Hikes to try:

    [Sherbrooke Lake]
    Easy half day hike
    6 km return trip
    190 m (630 ft) elevation gain

    Despite its short length, Sherbrooke Lake is a quiet trail with a wilderness feel. The lake's aquamarine waters are fed by the Wapta Icefield and the forest has many stories to tell - of past fires, powerful winds and grizzly bear life. Because of the wide variety of habitats along the way, the trail boasts an amazing diversity of wildflowers in mid-summer. A must-do trail for flower lovers.
    So let's do an early morning hike to the lake. And do sunrise there. Then we photograph the wildflowers on the way back. And we should have a group of six or more here.


    [Emerald Lake]
    Easy half day walk
    5 km (3 mi) return trip
    No elevation gain

    Emerald Lake is another jewel of the Canadian Rockies, and is one of the few lakes with a trail all the way around it. Thanks to its position on the west side of the Great Divide in Yoho National Park, a 360 degree tour of Emerald yields up four very different environments: a huge avalanche path, the normal forest, a dry and dramatic alluvial fan and the towering trees of the coastal rainforest.

    Perfect as a Sunday morning hike. We can do this and get on the road back home after.

      As the crow flies, between Lake Louise & Golden BC. Yoho is very close to the AB/BC border, on the BC side. Yoho borders Banff. This is the area your in.

    Hey, I'd love to go, but can't make it the long weekend Aug 31 - Sep 2. What do you guys think about Aug 17/18? Maybe it's less people on the trails that weekend, too?

      I just found out that I probably can't make it the weekend Aug 17/18... sorry about that! The only weekend that would probably work for me is Aug 10/11. I'd love to go, but you guys better decide what suits the majority best, and I have to go from there to figure out if I can make it!

      Yes, it's work for me too. I'm also wait from the organizer (Imran) to decide on a date, is better to reserve early to get a spot especially the accomodations (hostel or campground).
