Back to Map 

Visited: Late Aug

Probably the Canadian Rockies at their best. This day walk leads from the pretty Morraine Lake, through Paradise Valley with a panorama of impressive peaks. Sentinel Pass provides a dramatic link into the beautiful Larch Valley. No permits are required but you must check the regulations regarding party size to reduce the risk of bear encounters.
