This is an absolutely awesome hike up to Sentinel Pass with amazing views on the surrounding mountain range! Last piece requires some experience in hiking, scrambles ahead! However worth the effort!

This was a stunning hike, though steep through the switch backs to the valley, with the fall colors showing in the Larch trees...breathtaking and wonderful. It was well worth the effort to get there! Another Must See!

The only way up to Sentinel Pass is to hike there -- typically either from Moraine Lake (the more popular route) or Lake Louise (the more challenging, less traveled route). Once there, the views are spectacular, especially back toward Larch Valley. The climb from Moraine...More

The first part of the hike, through lake morraine and larch valley is not too tough, until you reach the lakes at the end. Breathtaking scenery. After that it is a steep Z climb up to get to the pass. At places, the trail feels...More

This is well signposted from Moraine Lake and the trail is well kept. It is a challenging walk but has amazing views at the end and is well worth the climb. Not for beginners.

We went in mid-summer, so no snow on the trail at all! Although it was in July, when we got to the top there was a strong wind and some light hail/snow, although there were few clouds above us. Definitely check with locals.
