Our#: AM0397, ISBN: 0-929140-39-7, Scale: 1:20,000. Waterproof.
An exceptionally picturesque area within British Columbia's Yoho National Park, and just over the continental divide from Lake Louise.
As W.D. Wilcox put it "In all the mountain wilderness the most complete picture of natural beauty is realized at O'Hara Lake".
This detailed 1:20,000 scale map is your close-up guide to over 80 km of hiking trails, alpine meadows, pristine mountain lakes, massive glaciers, and awesome vistas in a compact area well away from the hustle and bustle of the popular Lake Louise tourist region.
Access is restricted to two reserved bus rides per day, or you can hike in either over the pass from Lake Louise or more easily from the highway near Field B.C. Restricted access means you'll enjoy greater solitude than busier tourist centres like Banff and Lake Louise. We consider this area to be one of the best alpine hiking destinations in the Rockies.
Our guide provides detailed information and colour photos describing local geology, human history, wildlife including a special section on bears (since they do roam this area), trail descriptions, trail etiquette & procedures, access & services, safety precautions and contact information.
Also consider our map of nearby Kootenay National Park-The Rockwall, which overlaps this map to the south. Over 100 km of hiking trails await your journey along The Rockwall, the towering 900-metre high face of rock overlooking some of the most spectacular scenes in the Rockies.
