Description 

A "Rim" of Mountains surrounding Moraine Lake. These ten peaks are just south of Lake Louise with the great Mount Temple guarding the gate into this magnificent area.


Getting There 

Drive up the hill west of the trans-Canadian highway towards the Chateau, turn south to gain the seasonal road towards Moraine lake. There is a large parking lot, a hotel and of course, a gift shop.
