my husband phoned the tourist board and asked if it was uphill due to my asthma. We were told NO its an easy hike. Once there we could see that this is not a Hike for Chronic asthma people. We walked the road and left. There are a lot of trails in Canmore that are Easy But this is not... More

Grassi Lakes is not in the tourist radar like Lake Louise but it is truly one of the most beautiful places you can ever see in Canada! Having been there a few times, let me share some tips: 1. Check the website for notices of closure of the trail. But even if it is closed there are still a lot... More

I love this super accessible short hike to the beautifully coloured Grassi Lakes. I try to get out and do this hike a couple of times at least.

Two beautiful ways to hike up to Grassi lakes and both have a different beauty. One is thru the forest and the other has an open view. Once at the lakes you will see beautiful clear water with many spaces to take pictures, hike up more or just sit and enjoy the spectacular beauty all around. Lots of parking and... More

There are two paths you can take - easy or 'difficult'... my wife and I are both fairly athletic but were not sure of the 'difficult' path. The easy path is very broad and fairly even terrain (it does slope, but there aren't large rocks or tricky steps). The difficult path is for most of the way like any hiking... More

Easy short hike up from the car park just past the Nordic centre, parking on the left. 2 paths up to the first lake and then the second.... Make sure you go all the way to the dam head at the top.... Easy going, even for me with my asthma and wheezy chest..spring at the moment.. Slightly muddy in places...... More

These turquoise lakes are absolutely stunning! The hike is quite easy. Several other visitors on the day I was there had strollers and small children. The area is nice and quiet, great for pictures, although the view over the river (and quarry) isn't the most breathtaking that there is, the lakes provide more than enough to look at. If you're...

Enjoyed a beautiful hike with the family on Canada Day. Paths were busy so I recommend going as early as possible to avoid congestion (both on the path and the parking lot). A must do hike when in the Canmore area.

Make sure you do this walk on a sunny day. I'm sure it would be stunning in summer time but to walk into this wonderland in winter is magical. It's a steady mild incline and took us about 3 hours for the round trip which included plenty of photo time and just hanging around at the top being amazed by... More

Definitely a must see! Easy hike. Be prepared... in the 21 years I have lived in Canmore, and enjoyed this hike, it has gotten busier and busier! It's no wonder when you see the treat at the top of the hike! Make sure to pack a lunch for a beautifully scenic picnic!
