From the Hamlet of Lake Louise head towards the Lake Louise Ski Resort, crossing over the TransCanada Highway. Shortly after the TransCanada overpass you will see the turn for the Bow Valley Parkway on your right hand side.
From Banff head west towards Lake Louise – if you prefer to take the slower scenic route, watch for the exit for the Bow Valley Parkway. If you prefer to travel at a faster pace, stay on the TransCanada Highway to the turn-off for Highway 93 and Castle Mountain Junction. Turn to your right at the junction and follow the road for a few kilometers where it intersects with the Bow Valley Parkway where you turn left. Be sure to have a look at the top of the bridge as you cross and see if you can spot the Osprey peeking out of its nest.
The Bow Valley Parkway is a beautiful scenic drive. In the winter it is important to have proper (winter) tires on your vehicle as it is ‘the road less traveled’. In the summer months there are several cyclists on the road as well as wildlife so it is very important that drivers concentrate on the road and be mindful of the posted speed limit of 60 km per hour.
As Baker Creek Mountain Resort is off the beaten track, there is no scheduled transportation to the resort. If you are flying we recommend booking a car rental at the airport you are arriving at. If you are travelling from the United States double check with your insurance company that your regular car insurance covers rental vehicles in Canada.
