Stunning alpine views of the famous Valley of the Ten PeaksA much more unique photo opportunity of Moraine LakeViews of several prominent glaciers and the gorgeous Paradise ValleyThe Eiffel Tower rock formation viewable from the summit11km roundtrip1300m of Elevation gain

Starting from the parking lot at Moraine Lake follow the trail as it switchbacks up away from the lake. At a spot with two benches the trail will split, the majority continue on to Sentinel Pass and Mt. Temple, take the left fork, it will dip down to a rocky stream, cross that and ascend the skyline ridge.

At the end of the ridge there is an obvious trail that works its way up the scree slope, If you're going in shoulder season there may be a snowfield covering the upper portion of the trail changing this hike to a scramble where you'll have to be comfortable with simple route finding and some minor exposure.

I'm a teacher in Victoria, B.C., Canada. The dream would be to eventually teach a combination of Physical Education, Outdoor Education, Social Studies and Physics. I have a passion for the outdoors, including it's protection, and a desire to ignite that feeling in others! Explore, adventure, and pursue your passions, no matter if they're big or small!
