The Rummel Lake hike one of our favourite year-round Kananaskis hikes. For a moderate amount of effort, you get to enjoy a beautiful walk through a mountain forest, an open meadow with incredible vistas of the Spray Lakes Valley and a beautiful mountain lake in an intimate setting, with enormous Rocky Mountains looming overhead. The incredible Kananaskis scenery can be enjoyed all year round, but Rummel Lake is perhaps most beautiful in the fall. The entire hiking trail is lined with bushes whose leaves turn brilliant yellow, pink, red and purple. And when the hike reaches the right altitude near Rummel Lake, you’ll encounter the brilliant golden needles on larch trees. Rummel Lake has many larch trees, making it one of the top larch hikes in Kananaskis in fall. It’s not as popular as Burstall Pass, Ptarmigan Cirque or Pocaterra Ridge as it lacks a large, continuous stand of larch trees. But, if you can forgive Rummel Lake for having somewhat scattered larch trees, it’s a beautiful Kananaskis hike for fall colors.
