This National Park in Alberta’s Rockies is home to some of the world's most beautiful mountain landscape.
The Bald Hills are bare, rocky, summits high above the Maligne Valley in the north-east of the NP, which command astonishing views.
From the foot of Maligne Lake, climb 500m to make a couple of loops on rock and alpine meadow well above the tree line on the Bald Hills to the south-west of the lake-head.
Huge and stunning views of the mountainous, glacier-speckled wilderness and lake.
Up to 650m total height gain.
This is demanding walking in remote mountains with uncertain weather, and where bears are a risk. Come fully prepared.
