Fairview Lookout At A Glance
Distance: 2 km return
Elevation Gain: 100 m
Washrooms: At the parking lot
Chariot Friendly? No. Much of the trail is chariot friendly (with ski attachments) but the latter part is too narrow for a Chariot, especially since this is quite a popular trail. Child carrier pack recommended.
Parking: Main public parking lot at Lake Louise
Trailhead: Look for the trailhead sign for Fairview Lookout / Saddleback / Mount Fairview near the Lake Louise Boat House.
Safety Note: Do NOT go past the lookout as there are dangerous avalanche slopes beyond!
This quick and fun trip can be combined with the Lake Louise Lakeshore Trail or Mirror Lake. If the lake is frozen, you can snowshoe on Lake Louise!

Enjoy a post-snowshoeing snack at the Chateau or down in the Village at Laggan’s, our favorite mountain bakery.
