Emerald Lake, British Columbia
Emerald Lake is located in Yoho National Park, British Columbia. It is the largest of Yoho's 61 lakes and ponds,
as well as one of the park's premier tourist attractions. Emerald Lake Lodge provides a local accommodation.
There is a relatively easy 5.2 km hiking trail circuits the lake. During the summer- months canoe rentals are
available; in the winter, the lake is a popular cross-country skiing destination. The lake is enclosed by mountains
of the President Range, as well as Mount Burgess and Wapta Mountain. These structural landforms cause frequent
rain in summer and heavy snowfalls in winter. This influx of moisture works with the lake's low elevation to
produce a unique selection of flora. Trees found here are more typical of that of B.C.'s wet interior forests.
