Iceline Trail

Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada

The Iceline Trail

The Iceline is a fascinating hike on one of Yoho National Parks premiere trails. You will travel from thick forest on to rocky glacial moraines, up along the edge of the Emerald Glacier and the Vice President Mountain, and eventually down into sprawling alpine plateaus. The Iceline trail climbs high above the valley, yielding an outstanding view of the Daly Glacier branching off of the Waputik Icefield feeding Takakkaw Falls. The Iceline trail gives visitors to Yoho a chance to witness glacial processes up close, as the Emerald Glacier retreats and leaves boulders, rock moraines, and scars across the mountainside.
