“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This lake is absolutely beautiful in the summer or winter. There are nice hikes to on (watch out for bear warnings in the spring and summer) and canoes that you can rent. There is also a concession with food and drinks as well as a gift shop.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I was here in the summer and the fall, amazing any time of year! It's too bad the road is closed over the winter though. :(
Great hike along the lake in the summer. LOVE this place!

“a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

this is a must see! once there you will recognized it from all the photographs you see...definately put this on your places to visit while in the Canadian Rockies and do the short hike to the top of the rocks and take lots of photos maybe even a video and no one will believe they are real photos!

“Favorite Lake in Canadian Rockies!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I visit this Lake on a regular basis. 5 to 10 times a year. It is one of the magical places in the Rockies. No matter the time of year it is always special. Saw that it was rated one of the worlds top 10 places to see on Trip Advisor. Thought I would share a photo taken in late May. Road is closed during Winter and this a Spring photo, before the ice melts.
