Tower of Babel

The Tower of Babel is a gorgeous half-day scramble that starts from Moraine Lake in Banff National Park.

*Helmets should be worn on this hike!


From the Moraine Lake parking lot head past the washrooms and towards the large rock pile. Turn off on the path towards Consolation Lakes. Follow this path for about 5 minutes and to your right you will see a large boulder field with multiple paths and carins. Follow your chosen path up and aim for the gully between the two mountains. Scramble up the scree gully (1 step forward, 2 steps back kind of terrain). Eventually you will reach the top and be granted with gorgeous views of Moraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks.
