Gain an elevated perspective and escape the crowds of Lake Louise. Enjoy amazing views of surrounding peaks Mount Temple, Mount Lefroy, Mount Victoria, as well as other mountains in Banff National Park.

Fairview Mountain is a non-technical objective alpine summit located on the south side of Lake Louise. It's trailhead is accessed from the Lake Louise parking lot. The trail is well established and well marked throughout. You can expect a distance of about 11km return and elevation gain of 1000m, which are well worth it. 

To consider: you will need a national park pass if you want to park at the Lake Louise parking lot. Also, the parking gets very busy passed 8am therefore plan to arrive early.
