Scenery: ★★★★★ Difficulty: ★★★★★
Mt Temple is 9th highest peak in Canadian Rockies, the highest peak in Lake Louise area. I would say that the view from the top was the most beautiful scenery that I had ever seen. I was so impressed that I bursted into tears. Although it's very strenuous hike, 99% of the trail is class 1. The trail is not difficult to follow as marked with cairns and ribbons when it is not obvious. There is a short class 3 section, 5m (15ft) rock climbing which is not that difficult.
If you are interested in hiking Mt Temple, I recommend that you start as early as possible not because it's a long hike but because there will be no parking space in Moraine lake trailhead if you arrive late in the morning. I think 7am is safe, but if you arrive 9am, you might not be allowed to drive to the trailhead, you will have to take the free shuttle instead. We stayed 2 nights before and after this hike in Lake Louise campground which is very close to the trailhead. Make a reservation as earlier as possible if you are interested in as it's very popular and really nice campground with hot shower.
