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. This starts from the Twin Falls Campground, but you could hike in from Takakkaw Falls and do this as a long day hike too (you’d just need to turn back to the car park at Laughing Falls.) We hiked this on a cloudy…

We planned to have a quick stop here on our long drive back to Vancouver, but once we started wandering along the Emerald Lake Loop, we couldn’t help but keep going and see entire walk. The Emerald Lake Loop is the perfect place for…
