Larch Valley Hike in the Canadian Rockies


Live commentary in English. Beginning from the Valley of the Ten Peaks at Moraine Lake, the trail climbs, really climbs, up to Larch Valley on a well groomed trail. After reaching the Valley, the trail ambles through a larch forest and then begins to gain elevation again towards Sentinal Pass. Ascending towards the Pass, views of the Ten Peaks, Moraine Lake and gigantic Mt. Temple will complete your experience. Trail restrictions due to bear activity make this a definite feather in one's cap.
