We stopped here to and from Lake Maligne - while it doesn't warrant any particular contemplation, the still water gives a mirror-like effect when viewed at ground level. We also saw our first pika here!

The day we were here was overcast with the sun only breaking through from time to time but the lake with its’ mountain backdrop was still spectacular. There is a pull out and view point area off the main road which was pretty busy but...More

One of our favorite stops on our Canadian Rockies tour - (I’ve used that statement a lot!) Beautiful colored water, mountains - and reflected in the water - had had fires and even the “starkness” of the burned trees added to the beauty of the...More

En route to the much larger Maligne Lake and with only a small pull over point rather than a big car park. I actually preferred this to its larger cousin further along the road. The first time we drove to it was at dusk and...More

Roadside stop on our day trip from Jasper as part of Rocky Mountaineer package. Very pretty with the mountain reflections on the water. A pity that some of the lakeside pine trees have been destroyed by either fire or the pine beetle ( not sure...More

Unfortunately it was rainy, so the view wasn’t quite what we hoped it would be, but it was a great stop on the way to Maligne Lake. We saw lots of wildlife around this area including black bears!

Really a quite lovely morning stop for us. Reflections on the water were still clear. It was a cloudy morning, but still nice! It's more about the views. Wildlife chose to stay hidden for us, but you could tell the potential is there! Pretty drive...More
