After our Valley of the 5 Lakes hike, we still had some energy left, so opted to do another short hike. The Flower Loop is a small loop hike, adjacent to the Overlander Trail hike.
- trail head – 6th bridge on Maligne Lake Road
- distance – 2.2 km (1 1/3 miles)
- elevation gain/loss – none
We had hiked here in June and wondered what we would see in autumn.
Views of the Maligne River at 6th bridge and the trailhead.

Scenes along the trail.
The wildlife. These ravens were extremely perturbed that we had entered their basking territory. From the last slide, you will recall we are big on shadow selfies.
The Athabasca River scenes.
Back home to 6th Bridge – we could not linger here as numerous hikers made physical distancing difficult.
Satisfied we had now had enough exercise, we headed back to the cabin.
