Yoho National Park


Lake O’Hara

When veteran hikers get together to reminisce, the name Lake O’Hara comes up early and fondly. It is easy to understand why it is considered such a special place. Within a five-kilometre radius of Lake O’Hara there are 25 named lakes, numerous high, rugged mountains, and one of the most extensive and well-maintained trail systems in the mountain parks. The trails, built over a period of nearly 50 summers by Dr. George Link, Carson Simpson and Lawrence Grassi, radiate from Lake O’Hara like spokes from a hub.
