  • The hike starts at Moraine lake. Start your hike as early as possible as the parking lot by this lake fills up quickly. Parks Canada require you go in groups of 8 as there are grizzly and black bears ...  more »

  • Beautiful hike. We did the loop hike, by descending into the paradise valley. A beautiful steep hike offering wonderful views of Mt. Temple. One can do a quick scramble up Mt Temple from the Sentinel pass if one starts early and has a good weather window.
  • Well spent time. Great hiking tour and breathtaking view on the top. No people, just nature and fresh air. The best therapy after hard week.
  • Excellent hike beginning at Moraine Lake and ending at the start of the Mt. Temple scramble. Plan to be at the parking lot of Moraine Lake very early if you don't want to end up parking on the road or not being able to access Moraine Lake at all. I'd recommend being there by 8:30am at the latest on weekends. The hike takes you up many switchbacks until you reach the valley, from there the trail is more flat until the final assent up the last few switchbacks to the top of Sentinel Pass. From here, experienced scramblers can go up to the summit of Mt. Temple. In September you'll have amazing views of the Larches changing colour.
  • Always love this hike during the autumn season. The switch back is a bit strenuous but the golden larch view was well worth it. Parking is a perpetual problem it seems so arrive early.
  • One of my favourite hikes on the planet! A relatively short day hike with big views at the top. Not to be missed.
