Yamnuska – Canmore – Epic Trip Adventures


Yamnuska (Mt. Laurie) is a moderate scramble with unique elements that make it a very fun and popular hike. Highlights are an exciting walk along the ledge of a cliff assisted by a chain, a great scree slope for the descent, and a spectacular view of both the mountains and prairies. Check out the video of our adventure hiking Yamnuska here!
