Cirque Peak Banff National Park

The Best Hike in Banff National Park – Cirque Peak

Cirque Peak is an easy scramble in Banff National Park. Enjoy a spectacular approach through alpine meadows on a well-maintained trail. After reaching Helen Lake the peak is ascended off trail on a scree ridge with a short rock scramble to the summit. From the ridge, the views are spectacular. With each step upward the panorama continues to expand as more glaciers, alpine lakes and rugged mountain peaks come into view.

Tangle Ridge Hike in Jasper National Park

The first stop in our Canadian hiking journey was Tangle Ridge in Jasper National Park. This hike is an excellent opportunity to reach ~10,000 feet in the Icefields Parkway region without navigating any technical sections. You just need some good ole physical fitness and prudence about mountain weather and you’re set!
