Peyto Peak is located in Banff National Park in the Waputik Range. It is situated southwest of Peyto Lake at the southern end of the Mistaya River Valley. The spine of the Continental Divide is less than 2 km to the west of the peak, and the Wapta Icefield to its south. The Peyto Glacier cuts across the western footing of the mountain. The scenic Icefields Parkway passes to the east, and Peyto Peak can be seen from the highway, but is best viewed to full advantage from the Peyto Lake overlook at Bow Summit. Peyto Lake is named for Wild Bill Peyto who liked to spend private time at the lake. Ebenezer William Peyto (Wild Bill) was an early outfitter and guide in the Banff area in the late 1800's.
