A breathtaking run up to a ridge that once had ice but now just offers views of the mountains and Takakkaw Falls.

Description

This trail begins at the youth hostel - but you are not supposed to park there unless you are a guest. There is parking available further along the road at the Takakkaw Falls parking area. Find the trail at the west side of the parking area.

The trail is well built and starts climbing the east slope of The President on some great switchbacks. Most of the work is right here at the beginning. As you gain some ground, look for the excellent views of Takakkaw Falls behind you to the east.

When you emerge from the forest at treeline, the views in every direction get better. You'll have plenty of time to enjoy the views as you'll be above the treeline for nearly the rest of the trail. Keep checking out the Cathedral Crags to the south, Takakkaw Falls to the east, and Yoho Glacier to the north.

If it is clear enough, The President will be towering over you as well. When you curve around The President, you'll descend a little into the forest of Little Yoho Valley. Finally, cross the river on a bridge to the Alpine Club of Canada, Stanley Mitchell Hut.
