The hiking trail for Mt. Temple starts at Lake Moraine which is approximately 20 minutes from Lake Louise which is located inside of the Banf National Park on Canada Trans Highway.
Mt. Temple is considered by many to be one of premier scrambles in North America. Although the final ascent to the summit is only 8K, the altitude gain is 5,000+ feet via Class 3 & 4 climbing. Fewer than 40% of hikers successfully reach the summit. The scenery is amazing.
