Easy walk of 5.3 km in length to Emerald Lake with beautiful vantage points to avalanche slopes and glaciers.
Emerald Lake is one of the most beautiful and varied hiking destinations in Yoho National Park. 1882 Emerald Lake was accidentally discovered by the mountain guide Tom Wilson when he caught a few torn horses and came across the lake coincidently. The one-hour hike around the lake is one of the simplest but also the most rewarding of Yoho National Park at the same time. Michael Glacier or the world famous Burgess Shale deposits are located here and are only a few of the many geological features in the region. At the same time the lake is also the most important water source for a variety of wild animals, which we often encounter along the trails.
