  • Total elevation gain: 245 m
  • Total distance: 5.5 km


From the Durrand Glacier Chalet follow the trail towards east (past the shower building) for 150 meters, to the second branch-off (immediately after a tiny stream crossing). There use the trail leading to the right. This takes you along the west shore of Christiane Lake to Marmot Lake.

Now follow the trail leading from the east side of Marmot Lake up the Ledges. A few meters below the top of the Ledges is a branch-off. Take the trail leading straight ahead (right). Now follow this trail as you hike a large circle around to the Kala Lakes. This will bring you to the southeast point of Mirror Lake. Follow along the shore of the lake towards west (clockwise) to the obvious rock-cairn, located on top of a prominent knoll. Finally walk along the trail down the Ledges back to the Durrand Glacier Chalet.
