Wife and I drove out there at dusk hoping to see some wildlife. Nice views. Saw some deer, a beaver, and some birds. Gravel roads and a little bumpy. Nice drive to get out of town a bit.

Went here for early morning drive and stopped to have breakfast. Very peaceful and quiet- no one else around! Wouldn't go out of my way, but good spot if you're looking to experience the great outdoors of the rockies in silence.

We went up from from Canmore to try to see the elusive moose, and while we didn't see a moose, we saw a herd of very large big horn sheep running down the road, extremely cool, one of the areas was closed due to bear...More

The drive is on a gravel road without a lot of traffic but the scenery is pristine and we even had the opportunity to see a black bear walking alongside the road.

Stopped up there briefly to check out the lake. The road up/down is a bit sketchy. Drive slowly and carefully. Beautiful Lake and spot to have lunch.
