We stayed in Canmore and looked for a scenic hike in Canmore. Would highly recommend this one! Perfect for the non-hikers, beginners. Very scenic at the top! Take mosquito spray!

Rated as "easy" but was quite a climb up at elevation. Hikers can choose two different ways and I vote for easy up and difficult down.

Nice short hike to a small nice lake and climbing wall. Easy hike for about anyone to take and a nice reward at the top.

Can't add anything new to what's been written. Beautiful lakes, nice hike! Oh, we did see a brown beer about 25 yards moving away from us. Right at beginning of the trail.

We were given the tip to take the Difficult trail up and the easy trail down, which I was grateful for. It's much easier scrambling up narrow pathways and stairs than going down them, in my opinion. There were also great views along the way...More

I noticed there was a sign saying not to swim in it. I did stick my hand in the water and it's pretty cold. Maybe they just want the lake free of people?

Sorry to catch this so late. A tour bus could only make it to the parking lot. Hiking to the lake can only be done on foot . You could push a stroller or wheelchair up to the lake on the easy route but because of the... More
