The hike to the Ink Pots vis Johnston Canyon is one of the most popular day trips in Banff Park. The first 1.1 kilometers follows a lavishly constructed nature trail to the canyon‘s Lower Falls. The hike ends in an open meadow alongside Johnston Creek where the seven cold water springs of the Ink Pots bubble to the surface.
Above the upper falls the trail climbs to join the old access road from the moose Meadows Trail Head. Two kilometers further along the road reverts to footpaths and descends to the Johnston Creek meadow where the Ink Pots are encountered on the right hand side of the trail.
The Ink Pots are karst features that mark the outlets of seven old mineral springs. Fed by rainwater and snowmelt that has percolated into the surrounding bedrock, the spring water emerges at a constant temperature of 4.8 degrees C.

This has to be the most delectable valley on the east side of the highway, containing within its boundaries all the finest components of mountain scenery: blue lakes, waterfalls, meadows, talus slope and a karst pavement.
The prerequisite to heaven is a jaunt through Smith-Dorrien‘s network of skiing and mountain-biking trails. Colour-coded logging roads make access to the valley easy. After this you follow an occasionally steep and well-used trail to the upper lake, which is also the scrambler‘s access to The Fortress.

This jade-coloured lake is a year round popular destination and you are unlikely to be alone. In addition to the hiking crowd, scramblers use the trail to access Mount Chester, Galatea and Gusty Peak and boulders to access Elephant Rocks.
The start up steeply inclined logging roads is less than aesthetic, but after that it‘s a pleasant and mostly easy walk though alternating forest and flowery meadows.
The picturesue valley to the north of Chester Creek holds three small lakes. From the lakeshore trail, we will take the well-used trail that climbs over the intervening ridge of larches and jumbo-sized boulders to the valley of Chester Creek. The trail continues upstream to the first tarn, whose damp shores are beautified by clouds of silky white cotton grass. The finger valley between Mt. Galatea and Gusty Peak is a goat hot spot and if we‘re lucky, you can spot them feeding on deelicacies in damp, slanting guillies high up to the right.

Height Gain: 305 Meters / 1000 Feet + 244 Meters / 800 Feet
