Crowfoot Glacier: 34 km (25 min) from Lake Louise A century ago, there were three "toes" of ice here. Since then the glacier has melted back and the lower toe has been lost. These days the middle toe is disappearing, too.

Bow Pass ("Bow Summit") and Peyto Lake Viewpoint: 40 km (30 minutes) from Lake Louise. This is the highest road pass in the four mountain parks at 2 088 m (6 849 ft.) above sea level. A short uphill walk from the parking area leads to a view of Peyto Lake, glacially fed and brilliantly turquoise.

Johnston Canyon
This trail is probably the most popular in Banff. There are a series of catwalks anchored to walls of the Canyon and viewpoints above the river and falls. At this point, the trail leaves the creek and widens on route to the Ink Pots. It narrows again for a final descent to the Johnston Valley bottom and the Ink Pots (six clear greenish pools filled with spring water that remains at a constant 1-degree Celsius year-round). The distance to the Upper Falls is 2.7 km. The Inkpots are 3.1 km further.

Yoho National Park
Within five minutes drive from the village of Lake Louise, you can cross the provincial boarder to BC and enter the beautiful Yoho National Park. Home to one of Canada's highest waterfalls, Yoho National Park features more than 400 kilometers of hiking trails and beautiful turquoise lakes. It is also home to Burgess Shale, a World Heritage Site that contains the fossilized remains for more than 120 marine animal species. Educational tours are available for all ages.
