Whaleback trail from Twin Falls

Whaleback trail from Twin Falls

The Whaleback trail is a fantastic hike that will take you up above the amazing Twin Falls in Yoho National Park. You can then walk up high along a ridge with views of the surrounding Rocky Mountains.

I am thinking of things like when you meet a bear on the trail and need to turn back, or when it’s way too misty to head up into the alpine, or when a huge rockslide blocks the path, so you need to find a new place to explore, or when your legs run out of batteries while your brain wants…
