Water Body Nature / Park
Take a scenic hike to Grassi Lakes, nestled in the cliffs of the southern Canadian Rockies. The two lakes are named after an Italian immigrant, Lawrence Grassi, a notable climbing guide in the area who built the trail that leads to the lakes. Choose between two trails, a gentler one with a gravel road to the lake or a more difficult trek that passes a picturesque waterfull before ascending to the lake. When you reach the lakes, you can take in the panoramic view of the city below, try rock climbing on the surrounding cliffs, or have a picnic by the water. Using our world travel planner, Canmore attractions like Grassi Lakes can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
