Colourful Autumn Hike

Hiking Larch Valley from Moraine Lake is a popular trail, especially in the autumn when the alpine larch trees turn a radiant golden hue. There’s a 350 m (1150 ft) elevation gain in the relatively short 2.4 km (1.5 mi) one-way hike. And with a meadow near the top, you are rewarded with unobstructed mountain vistas and panoramic view of the Valley of the Ten Peaks. Group Access: Hiking Larch Valley may require hikers to travel in a tight group of four or more if grizzly bears are in the area (check with Parks Canada 403-522-3833).
