Moraine Lake offers by far the best drive in lake scenery in the national park. Try and hit it on a slightly cloudy day for the best photo ops, and climb up the hill to the left of the lodge for an elevated photo!

We loved the lake and the surrounding hikes. We would highly recommend this to our friends and we will, without a doubt, be back!

It was worth fighting the traffic to get there. The "20 dollar view" is one of the best images in the entire parks system...comparable if not superior to the classic shot you will see of lake Louise.

DO IT!

Looks like Tidy Bowl, given the blue color, but this is a spot to be walked around, kayaked on, and viewed from all possible angles.

Moraine Lake is very beautiful. The mountains and the lake make a magic landscape.
