I did this hike at the end of September and it's a beautiful hike to 2 emerald colour spring fed lakes. After about a five minute walk, the trail splits in 2. Take the " more difficult" labeled route since it takes you to an incredible view of a waterfall that is missed on the easy route. It also has... More

This is a perfect hike when you only have a few hours. We took the hard way up, which was not too difficult. Just a few steep sections but worth it for the views! We took the easy way down because it was a bit slick the day we went.

With three levels of difficulty this hike doesn't disappoint. You can access from above through the bouldering patch, or below from two separate entrances- one difficult one easy. The below difficult route has a water fall view point but can be quite challenging for some. The easy route is a quad like path through the forest. I usually take this... More

Nice park-like setting, flat walk very simple. There was a nice path through the woods that offered beautiful views. Very windy- dress warm.

A simple and easy hike to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Great for a couple or family.

Drive to Grassi Lakes is very tough. It is most challenging when there is rain. I definitely not recommend to go in snow for sure. Go when there is Sunny out there. When you reach finally to lake it is most beautiful thing you can see. Enjoyed it very much.

This is a gorgeous view, and the hike was not bad, and I'm an avid hiker. The lake was beautiful and definitely was a great view.

Beautiful short hike just minutes from downtown Canmore. Two ways up, a wide fairly flat path that is suitable for strollers and a more exciting narrow path with amazing views of the town, the valley and an awesome little waterfall. Once at the top you will be blown away by the color and clarity of the two small lakes. You... More

If you are looking for a short but worth it family trip with your pet you must go to Canmore and Kananaskis. Driving through the mountains is absolutely beautiful and there is really pretty scenic views on the road. After a nice drive you can be ready to go for a nice hike or walk to Grassi Lakes. You can... More
