This colourful lake and its backcountry campground are incredibly popular, in part because the access trail is so short. The Rae Glacier below Mount Rae (the source of the Elbow River) is a popular hike from the campground.
Start: Hwy. 40 (Kananaskis Trail) at Elbow Pass day-use area.
Difficulty: Easy on wide, but sometimes steep, trail

Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
