four season day hike

Very pretty spot with good views over the town and valley east. Reasonably easy walk up to the lakes with more challenging trail options down along the falls.

Grassi Lakes is a short hike from Canmore and you can take either the hiking trail which gives you beautiful views of the Bow Valley and a waterfall or you can take the easier route up a service road.

Imagine hiking in February. We got up to the waterfall and turned around due to ice on the trail. Did not want to get anyone hurt. Lovely walk none the less. Great family him win the summer.

We hike to Grassi Lakea yesterday. It is a nice hike however right now you should be wearing spikes under your boots as the weather conditions turned the paths into "a skating ring"! Be careful! It is very nice though.

Grassi Lakes is a beautiful hike not far from the town of Canmore. The scenery is amazing. Up at the lakes you often see people rock climbing.

Great hike up to the Grassi Lakes. Has both easy and more difficult routes. The easy route has a gradual incline all the way up. The trail connects to other trails in the area. The lakes in the winter have this beautiful blue colour to them. Hike up is a bit short.

Gorgeous place in the Rockies, easy to moderate walk with a stunning lake worth spending a full day. Canadians conserved a lot of greatness
