Mount Louis is a mountain located in southeast Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. It is part of the Sawback Range. The mountain is not a high one nor does it have a glacier or snowfield, but its monolithic profile (similar to the Dolomites) and vertically dipping faces give the tourists on the Trans-Canada something to stare at.

The limestone of Mount Louis is Devonian. What makes Mount Louis more unique than its neighbors, are the extreme steep cliffs which surround the peak from all angles.
