Canmore Quad Day - July 20th


Darling Lake

Description: Darling Lake is a beautiful alpine tarn below Mamquam Mountain. The lush alpine meadows, Old Growth forest, and lack of people make this an appealing outing. The trail is very technical and steep. It is also often quite hard to follow, good route finding skills will come in handy. The route also includes a slippery log crossing across Paranoid Creek. Look for trail markers and signs of traffic.
