Beautiful lake to go to with friends and family. Well kept trail and caves. Scrambling for those who require an additional thrill for those who choose.
This is a pretty easy hike if you stick to the wide path or you can take the more adventurous way up which we did and that was a semi good little workout. Pack some snacks and you can enjoy the lake at the top and watch the mountain climbers.
Invited by friends for Thanksgiving for the w/d. Did the climb...not too difficult even with arthritic feet. Colours were stunning and view spectacular. We loved the area so much we bought a condo so we could experience it regularly.
Actually been here both summer and winter. Beautiful in both seasons. Get ot enjoy the air, take a walk, enjoy the scenery, take pictures. It is so peaceful , so serene. Definitely check it out if you are near canmore at all (calgary, banff area)
That's the colour you see when you reach the top...it's quite pretty up there. As for the hike, there's two paths you could take, the easy way, which is through the forest, or the hard way, which has semi-steep steps up where you can catch the view by the waterfall. We come here for climbing as pretty close to Calgary... More

Nice and easy hike thru forest and some steeper rocky areas topped with some small nice ponds! (Not lakes by a long shot).
Go up via the left trail (which is a bit harder). Come back via the fire road. At the lake consider going up towards the reservior. Petrographs along the way. Can watch the climbers up close. Parking may be a problem on a weekend. Come early
This is a much used area by locals and people who want a really pretty place for a wedding. The area has a nice view of the mountains, has a dog off leash area, and the lake is use by many for swimming. The area around has many hiking and biking trails which are great. It is also close to... More
This is a great little hike for the 'non hikers'. Nice and easy trek up and a beautiful view at the top! Good for tourists who are not planning on climbing a mountain!! Usually can spot some mountain climbers or ice climbers at the top too!!
