About Peyto Lake Hike
Peyto Lake lookout is more of a walk than a hike but for those who want to explore further and escape the crowds you can hike to a higher viewpoint. You can also hike down to the lake itself and then towards the Peyto Glacier, more on that here. From the Peyto Lake lookout continue on a few meters and locate the trail leading downwards to the lake or keep going until you see another trail on your right that leads to an old fire road. The fire road leads to nearby old Bow Lake lookout. Follow the dirt road a short distance until Peyto Lake comes into view. At this point you can scramble up the mountain behind you for better views of the lake. This peak is where all the calendar pictures are taken from. Views of Peyto Lake get better the higher up you go.
