  • My friend and I visited Lake Morraine in July and once we made through the barrage of tourists and parked, we got on the sentinel pass hike. About .5 miles deep, we had the trail to ourselves since mo...  more »

  • Moraine Lake parking lot from the lakeside road and larch Ballet & Sentinel pass trail head. To groups of four or more because this is grizzly bear Habitat. At the time, four or more people to enter for one who went to started. I went on the second week of September, but just larch began the out views of the ten and larch. Slippery so Kitui gradient until minestimalake to Sentinel pass in adult women (down for half the time) is 3 and a half hours but be on the sandy road from there to Sentinel pass is also crossed paths with people scared me are afraid of heights because the road is narrow. This route is so helpful.

  • 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.
  • Go late in the season. Larches are amazing. Pickup your garbage and stay on the trail
  • Spectacular. Amazing views in a beautiful place. A must visit if you are in this area.
  • Make the trek up here. It's worth the effort!
  • Best views in Alberta!
