Lake Minnewanka Loop

Lake Minnewanka Loop Review

It's easy to spend the day along this 25-km (15-mile) loop. Traveling clockwise, you can explore Lower Bankhead and Upper Bankhead, an abandoned coal mine and mining community. Just 3 km (2 miles) farther you come to Lake Minnewanka, the largest lake in the park. Boat and fishing rentals are available. Farther along are more lakes and picnic areas.
