TRAILS AND CLIMBS AT LAKE LOUISE
TRAIL RIDING—Well-maintained trails radiate from Lake
Louise. Many trips may be made astride sure-footed mountain
ponies to points of special scenic interest in the surrounding
region. Within easy range are the Lakes in the Clouds, The
Saddleback, Paradise Valley, Lake Annette and the Giant Steps,
Plain of the Six Glaciers and the Great Divide. Longer trips
can be arranged to Lake O'Hara Lodge, Lake Wapta Lodge,
the Ptarmigan Lakes, Pipestone Valley, etc. The service of
guides, where required, can be obtained and riding kit, with
the exception of boots, rented at Chateau Lake Louise.
HIKING—The Information Bureau at the Chateau Lake Louise
will be pleased to suggest the best hikes available and most
suitable for you. An organized hiking trip conducted by a
Swiss guide can be arranged at the Information Bureau. Short
and long hikes are numerous. Many of them may be undertaken without guides. The trails from the Chateau to Saddleback and Mount Fairview, I1/* miles in length; to the Lakes in
the Clouds (Mirror Lake and Lake Agnes) 3 miles; to the Plain
of Six Glaciers, 4 miles; to the Beehive, about 4 miles; are popular. Other attractive hikes are to Paradise Valley and Giant
Steps, and along the Lake O'Hara Trail towards Lake Wapta.
The trails are kept in good condition and are well marked.
MOUNTAIN CLIMBING—Lake Louise is an unsurpassed
centre for mountain climbing. An array of mountains including
Fairview, Aberdeen, Temple, Lefroy, Victoria, Pope's Peak,
Whyte, Devil's Thumb, St. Piran, The Needles, Beehive, Niblock
forms a gigantic circle around Lake Louise. These offer a
wide range of climbs, representing practically every form of
rock, ice and snow work, suitable for novices and experienced
climbers.
One of the main enjoyments of a holiday at Lake Louise is the
opportunity for mountain climbing. Climbs ranging from the
duration of two days down to six hours may be arranged under
the guidance of competent Swiss mountaineers. The guides'
fees include such equipment as ropes, picks, pitons, etc. and the
guides' food on a trip of one day or less. Where the climb
requires a stop-over, accommodation and food for guide and
climber are extra at tariff rates. Parties of at least two and
not exceeding four climbers can be escorted by one guide according to the climb to be made. Full information may be
obtained at the information desk.
MOTORING AT LAKE LOUISE
Excellent highways and splendid mountain scenery near
Lake Louise make it attractive to the motorist. Several automobile mechanics are located at Lake Louise, and gasoline and
oil may be purchased there. Drives in private cars or busses
may be arranged at the Brewster Transport Company desk, at
the front entrance to the Chateau Lake Louise.
#
• An attractive route is the road to Banff, passing Mount Temple
and following the Bow River practically all the way. Mount
Eisenhower and Johnston Canyon are on this route.
# At Mount Eisenhower the Banff-Windermere Highway turns
south to cross Vermilion Pass between Storm and Boom mountains   into   British   Columbia.
Another scenic road extends to Field and Emerald Lake.
Westward to the Great Divide this road passes Wapta Lodge,
and follows the spectacular course of the Kicking Horse River.
Near Field is the junction of the road up the Yoho Valley.
The Kicking Horse Trail runs from a point on the Field-
Emerald Lake road to Golden, whence the Columbia River
Highway leads south to Lake Windermere and Cranbrook. The
trip through the Kicking Horse Canyon is one of striking grandeur. Return to Lake Louise or Banff can be made by way of the
spectacular Banff-Windermere Highway.
Motor trips remarkable for their rugged beauty can now be
made over the new Columbia Icefield Highway stretching north
from Lake Louise to the spectacular Columbia Icefield. The
route through this dramatic mountain country is fringed by
forests and flanked by peaks and vast glaciers.
