Make sure check the sunrise time and to try to arrive 30 minutes to an hour before. If you're driving north or south along the Icefields Parkway, you'll see a sign for Bow Lake, it's about 38km north of Lake Louise. There are two pull-offs for the lake, if you're heading north take the second road, if you're heading south take the first. The short gravel road takes you down to the Simpson's Num-Ti-Jah Lodge where there is public parking for those looking to walk along the shore of the lake.
The best time of the day to see this lake is definitely in the morning when the water is calm! The reflection of Crowfoot Mountain is amazing.
