The Epic Icefield Parkway : Cirque Peak

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out in the world and find such a thing for yourself. 

Had a good rest last night near Hector Lake ?

Time to move further north.

Next stop : Cirque Peak

This is a day hike usually done between June and October. The view from Cirque Peak is truly spectacular and another must do to add to your list.

You can park your car on both sides of the highway for this one. On your left side you will see the Crowfoot Glacier Viewpoint and on your right side you can enter the Helen Lake Trailhead parking lot. The parking lot was pretty busy when we went so this place is pretty popular.

You start your hike with a light elevation through the woods. Once you are out of the woods it mostly is going through meadows until you start your scramble of Cirque Peak which is quite intense.

The view from Cirque Peak won’t disappoint you.
