Best Alberta Larch Hikes with Kids

Author: Celine Brewer

Last Updated:

We’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy a multitude of the best larch hikes in Alberta. We are always so awestruck by the beauty of fall in Banff, Canmore and Kananaskis that we make it a priority to take the kids out hiking as much as we can in the fall. It’s true, not all hikes are a win with the kids, but here are what we would consider the best Alberta larch hikes with kids.

Since finding the best golden larch trees requires you to get up to higher elevations, it’s no surprise that a lot of the best larch hikes in Banff are beyond what most kids will want to do. With the Highwood Pass area being already at 2,206 m (7,273 ft), that’s where you’ll find the easy larch hikes.

Hidden Lake is one of the Best Alberta Larch Hikes with Kids

Don’t despair, Ptarmigan Cirque and Arethusa Cirque aren’t the only two larch hikes for kids. Plenty of the best Kananaskis larch hikes also fall in this list.

Rest assured that this list is a tried and tested list of kids larch hikes. We have done all these hikes with our kids with the exception of two. Since we’ve been hiking with our kids since they were babies, we have a pretty good idea of what they are capable of and what they enjoy on a hike.

Best Alberta Larch Hikes with Kids

Ptarmigan Cirque Larch Hike with Kids

Ptarmigan Cirque Larch Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance: 3.6km
  • Elevation gain: 267m
  • Difficulty: Easy

Ptarmigan Cirque is an easy, kid-friendly larch hike in Kananaskis Country near the Highwood Pass. The Ptarmigan Cirque hike is one of the most popular larch hikes, so you’ll want to do this hike on a weekday (not always easy with kids) or start early on a weekend.

This easy Kananaskis larch hike begins at 2,184m above sea level, the perfect altitude for Subalpine larch trees to grow. It doesn’t take much effort to start seeing larch trees, adding to the popularity of this easy Kananaskis hike.

After carefully crossing Highway 40, the Ptarmigan Cirque larch hike begins with 1.3km through an evergreen forest. A large forest of larch trees hugs the line where the forest meets the alpine layer of the mountain. The Ptarmigan Cirque hiking trail leads you through these golden larches, allowing an up-close experience. As a bonus, you’ll be able to see large stands of larch trees across the highway on Highwood Ridge.

The rocky amphitheater is where your kids will have the most fun. If your kids are anything like mine, they can spend ages climbing on the rocks. Take your time here and enjoy the scenery! Don’t forget to keep an eye out for those adorable pikas!

Arethusa Cirque Larch Hike

Arethusa Cirque Larch Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance: 4.6km
  • Elevation gain: 337m
  • Difficulty: Easy

One minute down the road from Ptarmigan Cirque, Arethusa Cirque is another kid-friendly larch hike in Kananaskis Country near Highwood Pass. Arethusa Cirque is less popular than Ptarmigan Cirque, but it seems to be growing in popularity every year. There are a few short, but very steep sections so only attempt this hike if you are all capable.

Again, because of the elevation that you are starting at, it doesn’t take long to start seeing larch trees. It will only take about .5 km before you encounter the first ones.

Going counterclockwise, you’ll follow the babbling brook through the larch forest onto the lower slopes of Storm Mountain. A sharp left turn onto a short scree field takes you above the tree line, where you’ll marvel at the golden larches in the forest below.

The Arethusa Cirque hike is a popular kid-friendly hike in Kananaskis Country

If you are hiking Arethusa Cirque trail with kids, they’ll especially love this section. Many kids are natural little mountain goats and will take to exploring the rocky terrain all around. If they have a keen eye, they may even find some fossils (keep in mind that this is an Alberta Provincial Park and fossils cannot be removed). Our kids loved this part.

The rock piles are one reason the Arethusa Cirque Trail is a great activity for kids in Kananaskis Country
Our kids loved the climb through the rocks and looking for fossils along Arethusa Cirque hike.

The aerial views of the large larch forest continue as you leave the scree and transition to a beautiful grass meadow on the slopes of Mount Arethusa. This is a great spot to break for lunch and enjoy the views of the Kananaskis larch trees. The descent back to the beginning of the loop is short, but very steep – bring trekking poles if you need help with your knees or balance.

The parking lot here is not large, make sure you arrive early.

Pocaterra Cirque Larch Hike with Kids

We recommend Pocaterra Cirque if you are hiking with kids

Pocaterra Cirque Larch Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance: 6.9 km
  • Elevation gain: 434 m
  • Difficulty: Moderate for kids

We have not done this hike with our kids yet. While I wouldn’t subject my kids to the South Pocaterra Ridge trail, the Pocaterra Cirque trail is full within their capabilities. Another option would be to hike just to the end of the larch forest on the Pocaterra Ridge trail (around 3.3km mark) and skip the final ridge section.

Be cautious at the cirque as many recent reviews commenting on the the rockfall hazard from Mt. Tyrwhitt. Recommendations are to stay left or perhaps don’t enter the cirque. In fact, you could just make the Pocaterra Tarn or the end of the larch forest your end point.

These trails all start at the same parking lot at Ptarmigan Cirque at the Highwood Meadows Day Use parking lot, so expect to get there early especially on a weekend. The trail can be confusing at first, so it’s best to have a map downloaded.

It takes less than a kilometer of hiking to see the first stand of larch trees on Mount Pocaterra. While the kids aren’t quite as impressed at the larch trees as we are, they would enjoy the muddy sections, crossing the creeks and looking for pikas!

The many rock piles along the Kananaskis Pocaterra Ridge hike offers an excellent chance to see a Rocky Mountain pika - one of the cutest animals on earth

Chester Lake Hike with Kids

Kids can still enjoy moderate Kananaskis hikes like the Chester Lake Trail
Our son hiking to Chester Lake in Kananaskis.

Chester Lake Larch Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance: 9.0 km
  • Elevation gain: 433m
  • Difficulty: Moderate

Chester Lake is one of the best hikes in Kananaskis. In fact, it’s our favorite all-season hiking / snowshoeing trail in Kananaskis Country. Just 3km of ascending pays off with an easy 2km walk through a grassy alpine meadow, complete with a beautiful stream and jagged mountain peaks all around.

Chester Lake is one of the most popular hikes in Kananaskis and for good reason. The initial trail is wide, making it an ideal hiking trail for families. The lake is beautiful and in the fall, the shores of Chester Lake are adorned with larches.

What make it’s a big win for our kids is to continue past Chester Lake to the Elephant Rocks. Not only will you find a bigger patch of larch trees, but good luck getting your kids to leave that spot!

Rummel Lake Larch Hike with Kids

Rummel Lake Larch Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance: 11.7km
  • Elevation gain: 449m
  • Difficulty: Moderate

Rummel Lake has been one of our family’s favorite all-season hikes for years. Located just north of the Burstall Pass larch hike in the Spray Valley Provincial Park, Rummel Lake starts with a well-groomed hiking trail. In the fall, the bushes and shrubs will show off with a variety of fall colours.

At the end of this section, you’ll enter an open meadow with excellent views of the Spray Lakes. You’ll see patches of larch trees on the upper slopes of the surrounding mountains. There’s a bench for a quick snack break. In fact, we used to hike to this location in the winter and the kids loved running back down.

Our kids enjoy the view on a bench on the way to Rummel Lake.

Next you’ll cross over the High Rockies Trail and will re-enter the deep evergreen forest. Once you leave the forest and arrive at Rummel Lake, you’ll be rewarded with a ring of golden larches surrounding the shores of Rummel Lake.

Our kids started singing “The forest that never ends” back along this 3.5km stretch of forest. Admittedly, there isn’t much to see besides trees. In fact, this isn’t the most exciting hike for kids, but we tried to make it fun by playing tag running down the final section! Of course, this is great for making a lot of noise too!

Two other popular hikes that often make the list for Kananaskis larch hikes are Black Prince Cirque and Rawson Lake. While we’ve done both of these hikes with our kids, we haven’t done them during larch season.

Rawson Lake Larch Hike with Kids

hiking to Rawson Lake Kananaskis

Rawson Lake Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance: 7.8 km out & back
  • Elevation gain: 320 m
  • Difficulty: Moderate

You start the hike to Rawson Lake along the shores of the Upper Kananaskis Lake. On a calm morning the reflections are stunning. We always struggle to get the kids moving because they want to play along the shores of the lake. We find that a perfect reward for the end of the hike!

Between Upper Kananaskis Lake and Rawson Lake you’ll be hiking through the forest. While this bit can be challenging, the reward at the top is worth it. Our kids always love the small boardwalk at the top. It’s the little things!

It’s also crucial to check the trail report for the Rawson Lake hike as grizzly bears frequent the area between Rawson Lake and the Sarrail Ridge trail.

The final hike in our best larch hikes for kids in Kananaskis is Tryst Lake. Again, this is on our ever growing list of hikes to do with the kids, but larch season only has so many weekends when they aren’t in school!

If you are looking for more hikes with impressive fall colours, you’ll find some easy hikes in our Kananaskis fall hikes post (coming soon) or many of our easy Kananaskis hikes will make great fall hikes.

Next we move on to the best Banff larch hikes with kids. This is a much shorter list but there are definitely still some larch hikes in Banff that can be enjoyed with kids. These are the hikes we’ve done with our kids. Based on this, we believe they could easily do Plain of Six Glaciers and Eiffel Lake as well.

If you are visiting Banff with kids and are on the search for more kid-friendly Banff hikes, we share all our favourite family-friendly Banff hikes here. These are hikes we’ve done with our kids and we share what they have enjoyed on each of the hikes.

Larch Valley with Kids

Larch Valley Sentinel Pass with Kids

Larch Valley Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance: 8.6 km out and back
  • Elevation gain: 535 m
  • Difficulty: Moderate

The Larch Valley hike may be challenging for some kids, with the consistent climb and rocky sections, but it’s well worth it to make it to the top. Even kids can appreciate a view like the one you get at Larch Valley. Take some time at the Minnestimma Lakes to see if the kids can spot a pika! You’ll hear them as you stop there for lunch.

Our kids, who were 8 and 6 years old when they first hiked to Larch Valley, really enjoyed this hike. They love that they can spot a larch tree, look for pikas and take a break on benches on the way up. They were able to push on to hike Sentinel Pass, but don’t make this a requirement. Our kids really wanted to hike the “Harry Potter scar” 🙂

Your biggest challenge will be getting to Moraine Lake. Read our full post on getting to Moraine Lake or the summary section we’ve included below.

Lake Louise Summer Gondola Hikes with Kids

Admittedly, we haven’t done these hikes in larch season with the kids, but we have done it in the summer.

The Kicking Horse Pass Viewpoint hike is a short 1.7 km out-and-back hike to a viewpoint just northwest of the viewing platform. This is the shorter and easier hike of the two Lake Louise gondola hikes.

The second hike atop the Lake Louise Summer Gondola is the Pika Trail to the Ptarmigan Valley Viewpoint. This Lake Louise hike is twice as long as the Kicking Horse Pass hike at 3.4 km out-and-back. Hiking to the Ptarmigan Valley Viewpoint can be steep in spots, but it pays off with a viewpoint much different to the one you get from the top of the sightseeing gondola trailhead.

Ptarmigan Valley Viewpoint - Lake Louise Gondola hikes
Our kids happy to make it to the Ptarmigan Valley Viewpoint at Lake Louise Ski Resort.

The best part is that the kids get to enjoy a chairlift ride to take away most of the climbing, there’s the chance of spotting wildlife and kids love the interpretive centre at the top!

It’s recommended to hike in groups of 4 outside the fence!

Taylor Lake Larch Hike with Kids

Taylor Lake Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance: 13.7 km out and back
  • Elevation gain: 907 m elevation gain
  • Difficulty: Challenging

Taylor Lake hike is a long hike for the kids. While they can appreciate the beauty of the lake with the larch trees reflecting in the calm waters, they were tired.

They are definitely capable of doing this hike, but as many people complain a large portion of the hike is in the trees. If adults complain that it’s boring, then it’s going to be harder to convince kids to get excited about it! We were glad to do this hike with friends and that we brought enough candy to go around!

Hiking to Taylor Lake with Kids

Once at the lake the kids weren’t very interested in going further to the larch tree meadow past the campground and we didn’t force them.

We’ve also done the hike to O’Brien Lake with our kids, but that was definitely pushing the limit on the distance they are interested in hiking!

Big Beehive Larch Hike with Kids

a family of four hiked to the top of the Big Beehive trail in Lake Louise to see the larch trees in fall
Reaching the top of the Big Beehive hike at Lake Louise.

Big Beehive Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance: 10 km out and back
  • Elevation gain: 520 m elevation gain
  • Difficulty: Moderate to Challenging

For kids who are frequent hikers and are able to manage this distance and elevation, hiking to Lake Agnes then continuing on to the Big Beehive is a stunning hike. Keep in mind that the switchbacks leading from the end of Lake Agnes to the top of the Big Beehive are narrow and there won’t be a lot of opportunities to them to stop for a break.

That being said, Lake Agnes is the perfect spot to take a nice long break. Kids will also love the section along Lake Agnes towards the back of the lake where they can spot pikas!

Our kids really enjoyed this hike, but it may have had something to do with the amount of praise they got from fellow hikers and the giant brownies they got as a reward! Oh and if you forget your lunch at home (like we did), you can always pick something up at the Lake Louise Ski Resort before hopping on the shuttle.

For any Lake Louise hikes, you’ll need to arrive very early or better yet take a Lake Louise shuttle! Read our full post on getting to Lake Louise or our summary of other ways to get to Lake Louise below.

Hidden Lake Hike with Kids

Learning from our guide on the Hidden Lake hike.

Hidden Lake Hike Stats:

  • Round-trip distance:
    • 16.6 km out and back (non-guided hike with 6km of access road)
    • 10.6 km (for guided conservation hikes)
  • Elevation gain:
    • 670 m elevation gain (non-guided hike)
    • 375 m elevation gain (for guided conservation hikes)
  • Difficulty: Easy for guided conservation hikes

While we’ve hiked to Hidden Lake in the Skoki Valley with our kids, we’d only recommend this longer hike if you are able to do the Parks Canada guided hike.

We took our kids (7 and 9 years old) on the Parks Canada guided conservation hike and they absolutely loved it. They had no issue with the distance or elevation gain, but perhaps that was because they were glued to our guide the entire time.

Other Tips for Larch Hikes with Kids

Before you head out on your hiking adventures to immerse yourself amongst the golden larch trees, here are some additional tips to prepare you for long hiking days in Banff:

1. Have a plan for your larch hikes with kids

It’s best to plan out your larch hikes. Once you know which ones you want to do, plan to do the most popular ones during the week and leave the lesser known ones for the weekend. Better yet, prepare your kids for getting out of the house early to ensure you get parking!

2. Check trail reports before doing any larch hikes

Trails can be closed due to bears or require groups of 4 or more. Always check trail conditions before heading out.

3. Cheat and get a hotel room

A fun and easy way to enjoy golden larches without the super-early wake-up call is to eliminate the long drive and stay at a hotel close to the larch trees. This is an especially good option for Banff and Lake Louise larch hikes. Stay in a hotel with a pool and make it a special weekend with the kiddos! Check out our family-friendly Banff Hotels or these Canmore hotels with a pool!

4. Dress appropriately

Dressing for a day of hiking in the Canadian Rockies can be tricky, even in the heart of summer. Given larch tree season is between mid-September and early October, dressing appropriately is even harder.

Chances are that you will be starting your day early enough to get a parking spot. The sun is lower in the sky this time of year and will often be hiding behind mountain peaks. You may not get direct sunshine until mid-morning (if at all). No sunshine equals significantly colder temperatures. I always have mitts and warm hat for my kid. While they warm up quickly, it helps curb some of that initial complaining if they aren’t freezing!

Also, keep in mind that the temperature drops 1C for every 150m of altitude gain. Given the high-altitude larch trees grow in, the temperature on your larch tree hike will be several degrees colder than the forecasted temperature for Calgary, Banff or Canmore.

Even if the forecast is for 20C+, bring a warm jacketgloves and a toque. Trust us – you’ll be glad you did.

5. Bring appropriate hiking gear

In addition to bringing multiple layers of warm clothing, make sure you have all the appropriate hiking gear with you. Most of these are long day hikes for the kids, so you’ll want proper footwear (hiking boots or shoes) foe everyone, a day bag (to carry water, snacks & layers), and warm layers for those passes and when the weather changes. You may also need micro spikes and trekking poles if your larch hike recently received a snowfall. You can also get micro spikes for kids! Our kids have gotten a lot of use out of theirs.

Check our our post on Banff hiking essentials for our recommended fall hiking gear in Banff.

6. Get an early start

Getting an early start will make sure you get parking and don’t need to have a backup plan (though you have have one anyways). It will also ensure you have ample time to stop for breaks, look for pikas and give the kids time to climb on rocks.

7. Be bear aware

Travel in groups the bears are busy trying to fatten up for the winter. Bear spray is a must. What’s better is if you can hike in groups of 4 or more and always make lots of noise (easy to do with kids).

8. Pack plenty of food and water

September can still get quite warm and these hikes are at higher elevations. Bring plenty of food, snacks and more water than you think you will need. Kids will be much happier if you plenty of snacks and treats for them along the way.
