“Moraine Lake is the Lake Louise quite equal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

If you feel the Lake Louise is too crowded, you will love the Moraine Lake with its beautiful view of the Valley of the Ten Peaks. A look that is also pictured on the old 20 dollar bill. The best view you have from the Rockpile, a short climb, but worth it.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This lake is absolutely beautiful in the summer or winter. There are nice hikes to on (watch out for bear warnings in the spring and summer) and canoes that you can rent. There is also a concession with food and drinks as well as a gift shop.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I was here in the summer and the fall, amazing any time of year! It's too bad the road is closed over the winter though. :(
Great hike along the lake in the summer. LOVE this place!

“a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

this is a must see! once there you will recognized it from all the photographs you see...definately put this on your places to visit while in the Canadian Rockies and do the short hike to the top of the rocks and take lots of photos maybe even a video and no one will believe they are real photos!
