  • Going here was my son's favorite part of the trip, after spending $1000 on various horseback rides, fishing trips, whitewater rafting, etc. Just go here and have a great time jumping in the water. we....  more »
  • This is a gem of a lake just off the Icefields Parkway. Pull off, go for a 5 minute stroll and there it is. You can spend an hour walking the trails. Amazing sights.  more »
  • Beautiful lake. Known for its clear waters and good jumping spots. Indeed, there are cliffs along the side of the lake perfect for jumping. All range of heights from 1m to 10+ meters. Clear signs tell you not to jump - but many families accepted the risk and were having a great time.
  • This has to be one of the prettiest little lakes off the icefields parkway,personally one of my favorites.When you get to the parking lot there is a trail that will take you to the lake,a short trail no more than 5 minutes tops and once you see the lake there is some great spots on your left to take some shots but the trail only leads into forest and edge of cliff,if you go just to your right and cross the usually mucky area you will hit the trail on the other side and it is a short loop inside the horseshoe shape of lake with stunning water color and giant mountains peaking behind the forest line.There's a patch of rocks you will see great to tan rest picnic and have a swim.Best thing is it's never busy here,a true hidden gem.
