A glacial lake, the Lake Minnewanka is famous for its scenic drive that is a 15 mile loop. Going clockwise, you can begin by exploring the abandoned coal mines and the mining community and head up to the Lake, the largest lake in the park. The natural beauty you’ll see here is par excellence. Set aside at least half a day here and carry a picnic lunch/snack to enjoy by the lake side; there are picnic benches and smaller lakes further up from Minnewanka that you could enjoy as well.
