A hike along Minnewanka Lake on Oct 2, 2015, which is located in the Banff National Park. Lake Minnewanka trail is best described as a narrow rolling trail with some amazing views along the shoreline of the lake. A great walk in the fall to see the autumn colors of the trees and the brilliant yellow needles of the larch tree.
