These two little lakes are pretty, but certainly not stunning; there are many more beautiful lakes in the Rockies. However, if you are in Canmore, I'd recommend a visit. They are close to town, and the hike is just long enough to give you a sense of accomplishment when you reach them. It's suitable for families with young children. Don't... More

Having just arrived in Canmore from South Texas, this was the perfect hike to begin to acclimate to the different altitude. Incredible colors in the water. "Hard" path is not so bad if you go slowly up the steep parts. Good for the lungs!

Took the mor difficult path and it is indeed difficult. Not recommended for anyone with less than average fitness or walking ability. Well worth the climb it though , views are amazing. The other path if far easier but more a woodland stroll without the views. Either way at the top the lakes are stunning!

Unmissable. An easy hike with big rewards. The views are amazing, we got there early and had the place ourselves. It takes your breath away.

Tougher than it looks but very beautiful. Lots of bears this year so access restricted. Walked it in 2014.

This is a perfect hike for everyone. There is an easy route and a more difficult path. Both lead to the two pristine lakes at the summit. Awesome views of Canmore as well as the Three Sister Mountains.

Beautiful hike up through the first took the hard route with 3 children ages 2,4 &7. It got kind of hard for the 2 year old towards the end of the uphill as was a bit steep but amazing views. Flew downhill ! Would highly recommend

We did this hike to the upper ponds and water fall. Spent 2 hours taking pictures and hiking around. Fun trail with constant sights.
