Trail is enduring so don't forget water and some lunch.Take the time and go all the way to the top as the 360 view is like You've never seen before.Love Canadian rockies.

The view from the top is just spectacular. You can stand and stare for ages. Make sure you go right to the very top. Although you get an awesome view from the first summit point it does get even better. We had a stunning rainbow and we were right at the arc at the very top...just before the storm about... More

Just so you know what kind of hiker is making this review: I am a transit driver on the coast (at sea level). A serious hiker I am not. So for people of average fitness HERE are the real goods. Reading the first part of this review, this hike isn't going to seem like a good idea but read on,... More

This two day walk was one of the highlights of our trip! Having walked in many areas of the world, this is up there as one of my favourites! My girlfriend and I did the Skyline trail from Maligne Lake to Maligne Canyon (46km). Simply a beautiful stunning walk in the Rockies, with amazing views everywhere and very few people... More

Beautifully graded switchback trail that leads to a gorgeous open area just above the tree line. Beautiful panoramic views. Perfect spot for a lunch. Short 10-minute push to the summit for even nicer views, but no reason to spend a lot of time there when is so nice just below. Go early when it is cooler and nobody is there.

This hike has a considerable elevation gain (some 700 m), but it is relatively straightforward and very rewarding for the views that await at the top. It can be done in 3 hours. Best experience it early morning, when there is a better chance of clear skies and uninstructed panorama. The added bonus is that the earlier you go, the... More

this is one of my favorite hikes in the area... it doesn't take very long to complete but it can be rough. the very last part before the top is pretty steep, but the views (especially at the top) throughout are amazing! also, check out the awesome hot springs stuff near the trailhead...

The trail is long, and steep (it starts out a little steep and becomes rather steep on the final 'summit push') so be sure to bring water, something to eat and the physical condition to match the effort needed. Having said that, if you take your time and walk slowly and remember to rest - the view from the summit... More

The trail is really awesome.. you have a fantastic view from the top, an have picknick there and watch many animals.. If you are fit enough you will get it done within 1.5-2 hours in total (so you have enough time to do other things as well) When you are back in the parking slot you can go to the... More

This is a 4k hike up 700m. It's pretty steady going although the last hike to the summit is a little rougher and can be a pull if you are tired? The effort is worth it with 360degree views. Good picnic area and plan drop into the sulphur springs at the end of the walk by the car park to... More
