Johnson Lake in Banff National Park, is a perfect short hike if you don’t have much time for one. It’s relatively flat all the way around, and the trail hugs the shoreline of the lake.
You can go either clockwise or anticlockwise around the lake – either way you’ll end up back at the parking lot! There’s also a secret cabin in the woods if you are looking closely enough.
In all the total return distance for the hike is about 2.8 km (1.7 miles), with very little elevation gain or loss.
