“Mountain Solitude”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Made a quick stop here and so glad we did! A quiet that seeps into your soul. As far as I could tell, we were the only people here. The lake was serene and the reflections were beautiful! It might not be a popular tourist destination but it worth stopping for....

“Underrated-- Yet beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Many people pass this early stop on the parkway in favor of some of the more "popular" attractions later on.. Definitely stop here, in the early morning, if possible! The reflections on the lake are incredible!

“Worth a stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Stopped at Herbert lake whilst travelling the Icefields Parkway. Good views and photo oppotunities. Well worth stopping if only for a few minutes. Elswhere this lake would be rated much higher but the area along the entire Icefields Parkway is so amazing that it just blends in.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

You could sit in this beautiful, peaceful place all day if you were so inclined. We were there on a perfect late summer day. The photo ops are tremendous. Not crowds of bus people when we were there.

“Beautiful Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is a beautiful lake that is just north of Lake Louise on the way to Jasper. It's worth it to stop and get a picture while on your way. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!
