Hiking Yoho National Park – Lake Oesa

This is an easy, interesting and scenic hike that starts along the Lake O’Hara shoreline, turns uphill via a short series of switchbacks and then enters an otherworldly plateau of loose talus and scree before ascending alongside Victoria Falls on stone steps constructed by Lawrence Grassi. After skirting the shorelines of two lovely little lakes, a short slope up through a break in the cliffs leads to the rocky slabs above scenic Lake Oesa.

Hiking Yoho National Park – Opabin Plateau

Opabin West and East trails anchor an easy loop to Opabin Plateau – a beautiful, rocky hanging valley above Lake O’Hara. The plateau is dotted with multiple alpine lakes, offers spectacular views of Lake O’Hara valley and is criss-crossed by a network of trails that pass multiple waterfalls, larch trees and more.
