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.
Due to its popularity and various access options, we have created the Lake O’Hara Travel Guide.
