Rated: Beginner! Yes...you can do this hike. Stick right at the fork for the easy wide (fire road) trail. Turn left for the virtual stone staircase that goes alongside the cascading waterfall. Both lead up to the picturesque aquamarine lakes at the top. Take a snack or lunch. You may want to hang out up there and soak it all... More

Nice hike but steep elevation gains The lakes are cool to see. And worth doing when in Canmore. It's windy up there so watch your cap.

This hike has a choice of an easy or difficult trail. Take your time on the difficult trail and enjoy the views.

Loved, loved, loved this hike. Only 1 1/2 hrs round trip and you see a beautiful waterfall, great mountain views, and 2 gorgeous mountain lakes. Take the "harder" hike which is the trail on the left, and the easy trail back down. The harder trail ascends pretty sharply up rock steps near the top but wasn't hard for our family.... More

Hiked up the moderate to easy trail with my college age kids. Flew into Canmore and this was our first hike of the trip as we headed north to Lake Louise and Jasper. Moderate elevation for this area but has some really good pay-off with the views of the lake below, a cool waterfall and the pristine lakes at the... More

My 16 year old son and I hiked the difficult trail up and the easy trail down. Some parts of the difficult trail are steep, some parts have large stone steps and there's parts where you have to hang on to a railing to help get you up. I think it would be a bit slippery if it were raining.... More
