Its a nice easy stroll to the beautiful turquoise lakes. Well worth a look. Very peaceful and quiet. Doesn't take very long to get there!

This is by far one of my favorite places...the hike is fairly easy, even if you take the more "difficult" route (just wear good shoes). I would highly recommend getting there early morning, as by 11 am onward it begins to get crowded. It is a short hike, with a great view after. Well worth the time, and a great... More

I have known this spot for decades but the high density of people was uncomfortable. Not all respect nature and the wildlife. Sad.

Great for an easy first hike in the Rockies. Take the more difficult trail if you can, the views are worth it!

This is an easy hike through some awesome scenery very close to the town centre of Canmore. Perfect for a few hours. Great views of the town as well as a couple of lakes.

My wife and I did hike on a nice sunny day. We did the moderately difficult path on the way up and we're rewarded with fantastic views of the waterfalls and a panoramic view of Lake below and mountains in the background. The Grassi lakes were beautiful and we got some nice photos. We took the easy trail back. Round... More

more difficult trail is way more scenic and not much more difficult, but it is not stroller friendly, you can push a good all-terrain stroller up the easier path. When you get to the lakes (there are 2 little ones), going up the stairs to the top is great!

This was a very good hike. Got to see yellow ladyslipper flowers, petroglyphs and owls up in a cave, besides watching rock climbers practice their skills.
