Lake Minnewanka Trail Hike
We are so blessed to have Banff National Park at our doorsteps. This is just one of the many areas we often visit for a quiet, peaceful, scenic get-away.
The trails at Lake Minnewanka is both a hiking and mountain biking trail. The hiking opportunities along Lake Minnewanka area are numerous. The scenery is so beautiful that it takes your breath away. This is also prime bear country, specially right up to the trails of Alymer Lookout. For most of the part, the trail skirts along the side of the mountain and at times can be a little bit scary particularly if you slip while riding a bike. IMHO, you will need an MTB with a suspension to be biking here.
We went all the way past Stewart Canyon right where the elevation started climbing but decided to head back not because of the elevation gain but because we didn't see any hikers anymore. Instead, we spent most of the time along the Canyon side trails.
