Beautiful hike April 16
Apr 2021 • Family
Beautiful hike, a bit icy this time of year so if you’re going wear appropriate footwear/spikes. I was able to complete this hike with my baby in his carrier without a problem. The lakes were melted and so stunning. Highly recommend this hike!! We used the side trail in the trees beside the “easy” path going back down to avoid some icy areas.

We were not experienced hikers and unexpectedly ended up hiking . We just came to see the lake.
However have no regrets . We visited during spring. The trail was slippery due to the melted snow..But later the strategy was to use the off trail.
The lake was amazing . Had few benches to sit.
It took approx 2 hours to complete .
However there was a trail further to the lake too

Hot spot in Canmore
Oct 2020
Went there with our one and a half.
It was a pretty hard ride for us with the baby in the carrier but it was worth it.
At the top, you have a pretty view of the surrounding area. It's not that long of a hike to get that beautiful view.
When your at the top, you can decide to continue a little further bcz there's trails there too.

There are two roads to the top. I suggest beginning with the climbing one bcz it's easier to climb the steep road than to go down. That way is narrow but you get to view waterfall as you climb.
On the way down, the road is really large and easy. You will be in the forest in that direction.
Approx 100-200 meter height, took us 1:30 to do it.

Be careful when you go, the parking lot is limited (there is one spot really nearby the trial but with feww spot and another one with at a 10 min walk from the trail).
It seems ton be a hot spot for tourist and locals from what we saw.

Breathtaking! A must hike near Canmore!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Absolutely worth the hike in good weather...take the difficult trail and enjoy the views and either return the same way or take the easy trail back but it is not as scenic. The water is Emeralds and Turquoises and beyond beautiful...I didn't want to leave. Add Moraine Lake and your heart ❤ will be so happy if you appreciate nature at its finest.

Know what time sunset is

It is all uphill we went closer to sunset so by the time we got to the top it was hard to see took us about 40 mins to go there and back. Will try again in the summer

This hike is very beautiful. However, keep in mind that it is fairly easy and more of a walk. Some areas can be quite slippery.

Good for kids
Sep 2020 • Family
This is a great trail for young kids! The easy route is very clear and a steady incline. The hard route is definitely much harder but still doable for little ones! Very exciting for a quick adventure in Canmore!

Great trail for familes
Nov 2020
Very scenic, even in the snow. Was a very popular trail and, unfortunately, the trail to the falls was shut down due to conditions. Very good for families.

The falls are out of bounds when there's snow - to experience the full beauty, you need lots of sun
Oct 2020
These lakes are extremely gorgeous, true little gems, and we were taking out of town visitors for a walk there. Thankfully, they have blocked the trail option to the falls - we had been debating on the drive there if we should risk it. But the falls themselves are under ice now anyway, and the falls trail would be a real life-and-death hazard. The easier route was in good shape, so as long as you have decent winter boots, you should be fine. One in our group had the wrong boots, however, and was slipping and sliding quite a bit. When we got to the lakes, we were surprised how breezy it was - we thought being tucked away, it would be sheltered from the wind. With the low sun and overcast condition, the water while still crystal clear but wasn't glistening or sparkling like it generally does. But it was still very lovely, and our visitors were impressed. Not stunning like it is in summer, but a good place to stretch the legs.

Nice location
Oct 2020
It snowed that day & part of the route was closed & there was no proper directions. The trek was easy & we enjoyed it.
