WORLD'S GKEATEST TRAVEL SYSTEM o
TRAILS 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. The trails from the Chateau to Saddleback and Mount Fairview, 2}^ 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. Remember to pack proper walking or climbing shoes!
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 Transport 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.

3 SUGGESTIONS FOR DAILY RECREATION
Putting Green - Near the main entrance. Get putters and balls at the Information Desk.
Swimming - Pool open daily. Glacial water heated to 72° F. Swimming and diving instruction by appointment.
Boating - Trips on the Lake in row-boats and canoes.
Fishing - Enquire at Information Bureau or visit the Corral, for further information.
Camping and Trail Riding - May be arranged through the Corral, adjacent to Boathouse.
Photography- Photograph films, developing and advice on photography can be had through the Camera Shop.
Dancing - Every night (except Sunday) in the Ballroom to the rhythmic tunes of the Chateau Lake Louise
orchestra.
Concerts - Dinner music daily. Song recital every evening (except Sunday) in the Rotunda.
Cards - Tables and cards placed in Upper and Lower Lounge, on request of guests wishing to play.
LAKE LOUISE
Lake Louise was discovered in 1882 by the late Tom Wilson, and named after Princess Louise, wife of the
Marquis of Lome, then Governor-General of Canada.
Dimensions - One and a half miles in length, three-quarters of a mile wide.
Coloring - Is due to the depth of the Lake and the minute mineral particles of glacial silt and rock dust carried
down from the Victoria Glacier.
Glacier - Upper Victoria, 200 to 300 feet thick, Lower Victoria 400 to 500 feet in depth.
Chateau - The charming Chateau Lake Louise - a Canadian Pacific hotel - has 386 rooms, all with outside
exposure. Altitude 5,680 feet above sea level. Average temperature during July and August, 62° F.
Shy Wild Life
Thanks to the ban on fire-arms in Canada's National Parks wild animals, though shy, are not afraid of
human beings. From the trails not far from the Chateau you may see Elk and Deer feeding; the Canada
Jay, known as the "Whiskey Jack"; and, more inquisitive than many other denizens of the mountains, the
hoary Marmot will sit on a rock to watch you and whistle to his friends to come out and have a look.
Camera Country
Whether you equip yourself with as many lenses as a Hollywood cameraman, filters, exposure-meters, and
other photographic gadgets that mark the enthusiast or just carry a simple snap shot camera - the beauties
of Lake Louise will tax your supply of film.
When you shoot in colour or black and white remember that the light values of the clear mountain air call
for other exposures than level ground. The camera shop will be glad to help you.
Additional information will be supplied at the Information Bureau
