Two Falls in Yoho National Park for the price of one!
An 18 km hike with approx 300 m elevation gain, with good variety, several waterfalls, Twin Falls themselves, Twin Falls Tea House (especially if it's open), a walk through a rock field with great views, a dried up lake bed.
Start at the Takakkaw Falls parking lot and follow the well marked trail towards Twin Falls. Along the way you will see several falls, and a few lookouts showcasing other falls in the distance. At 8km you get to twin falls where there are benches to sit at and enjoy the view. You can also take a different path back through a rock garden that meets back up with the main trail for a change of scenery.

This is a well-traveled hike, so if you stay on the path, you'll likely need only a good pair of boots.
Snowshoe Mount Tyrwhitt
Canada / Mount Tyrwhitt Parking
Describing snowshoeing trails is always a bit difficult, but luckily the way up Mount Tyrwhitt gets used heavily by people going to Pocaterra Cirque - first thing to remember is to take the first for.
