We had this trekking in aug. 2018. Amazing trekking - stunning. We started to trek at 5.30pm and finished in 2hr (return) at a pace of 4km/h quite tough considering the elevation gain (700m) but we didn't have enough time to slow down the pace....More

We enjoyed this hike. My only advice is instead of doing the loop,take the left and head up to the summit. The views are so much better and it’s faster! Nice steady climb views are amazing!

The bald hills provide a beautiful back drop to the blue Maligne Lake. We went for a walk around the Moose loop trail which was a 2.8K walk which was a lovely easy walk, but no Moose.
