Bow Falls Hike, Lake Louise at Banff, Canada


Bow Falls hike is a very nice, about 3 hours in length. It starts with a lovely walk around Bow Lake towards the head of the lake, where you follow rushing water the entire way. You go over two small hills, then a bigger hill where can see canyon. There it forks - you can go left (over boulder suspending over canyon) to the Bow Hut, or right (what we did) to the Falls. The trail is a bit difficult to follow to the falls, so be sure follow cairns.

Tip – start this hike early in the in day since the water levels rise on sunny days and it makes getting back somewhat potentially difficult (unless you don’t mind taking off your shoes and wading through glacially-cold water…..).
