Banff & Jasper

Banff & Jasper is the mountain in between Lindeman Lake to it's West, Flora Lake on it's East side, Greendrop Lake North of it's peak and Chilliwack Lake at it's southern end.
To get there go to Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada and then toward Cultus Lake through Sardis and turn left heading East into the Chilliwack River Valley from the Vedder Bridge.
It's about a 30 to 45 minute drive along the Chilliwack River Road almost to the end of the pavement where the Chilliwack Lake Campground is but just before getting to the Campground and end of the paved road there is a parking lot on the left or north side of the road.
This is the parking lot at Post Creek and trail heads for Lindeman, Greendrop and Flora Lakes.
Park in this parking lot and start down the trail to Lindeman Lake and soon there is a old road or very wide trail branching to the right, follow it and there is another fork and this time go left and it quickly changes to a trail.
This is the start of the Flora Lake Trail and the way to Banff.

To see this great view of Lindeman Lake go to a rock ledge on the West side of the ridge.
