Difficulty: Moderate - but lots of tree roots
Distance to Letterbox: 3 mile round trip, but go on to one of the lakes

Located at Cirque & Chephren Lake Junction. Tough hike up through trees and roots, but great view once you get there to either lake!!

From Lake Louise, go north on Hwy 1, then soon turn right onto Hwy 93 toward Jasper. Go past Bow Lake, Peyto Lake until sign for Waterfowl Lake campground. Turn left, then stay left and go past campground entry, on down to parking on the left.

To the Letterbox:
Walk across roadway to trail and take it down to the river and trail shelter. Cross bridge to other side. On far side, go up trail until you reach a trail junction for Cirque and Chephren lakes. Box is here. At sign, turn around and go back down entry trail for 20 steps to 2 15inch rocks on left. Box is under 2nd rock next to tree.
