Nice, easy hike especially for an older woman like myself. Take the "difficult" way when you reach up to the fork. The hard way isn't as hard (I have arthritis and was able to make it up). The views are worth it as you ascend and one can enjoy a beautiful view of Canmore. there are rest stops for the... More

Wow! This hike is absolutely amazing. There are two paths, easy and difficult. The difficult path has stairs (which are quite steep), but you can see the amazing waterfall and views of the valley. I suggest difficult on the way up and easy on the way down if you can manage it. You will be treated to amazing views at... More

Lovely turquoise lakes at the top but watch the difficult route up or down if you have young kids or unsteady on your feet, stick to the easy route. Great views. Everyone friendly on the pathways .

This is a great hike to do with family and young kids. It's easy to get to and doesn't require a lot of time to complete but the views are worth while and the lakes are beautiful

There are a few different places you can park. There is a lot on the main road, or you can drive down a few km and park along the side of the road. There is a washroom and maps so you can use those before beginning your hike. Also the reservoir is close by that you can swim in. We... More

Easy to hike to. You can choose one of two paths (easy or difficult). The easy path is an old gravel roadway... wider and slight slope. The other path is a true wooded hiking trail, which has some steep parts toward the end, but nothing extreme. The more difficult path is much nicer, because it has spectacular views, plus an...
