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. It is a popular spot, and seems to get busier all the time. I often take out of town visitors there. There are only two outhouses in the parking lot and there is... More

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

We only had an hour and a half before sunset and tried this hike. It is perfect for the amount of time we had. The hike is an easy hike although you would definitely need icers to walk over the frozen icy waterfalls. Once you get to the top, there are a couple of beautiful lakes and some great rock... More

This trail is not too demanding, but takes you round some very pretty lakes. You have to follow some fairly narrow tracks in places, but it would be difficult to get lost! As in so many other cases in this area, stay in a group for this walk. The lakes make for some great views and pictures.

very pretty short trail. Pretty lakes at the top. Crowded at times. can watch rock climbers once up there. can take the easy route, or difficult route. Difficult is NOT difficult. Gives you a break from the crowd however there is one climb at the waterfall that can be tricky. I assume this is the difficult part.

The colour of the water in these lakes is amazing and beautiful. It is a fairly hard walk into the lakes but is so worthwhile. The view over Canmore is lovely as well.
