Parker Ridge Trail, Banff National Park, Canada

Parker Ridge (trailhead 4 km south of the Icefields Centre) Trail is a very steep hike, but more than well worth the effort – it has some fabulous views! You hike behind the Columbia Icefields to spectacular Saskachawan glacier (not seen form the road) with its small lake (unfortunately, it was a cloudy day and our pictures do not do it justice). Be sure to walk to the left as well for more views. It’s about 3 hours with lots of time at top, which can be cool & breezy.
