The Aylmer Pass and Lookout trail features views of the largest body of water, Lake Minnewanka, in Banff National Park, and the trail takes you from shoreline to timberline.

The first 7.8 kilometers of the journey follows the north shore of Lake Minnewanka over gentle, undemanding trail to Aylmer Pass junction.
