So wonderful. Followed a moose and her calf part of the way in the morning. Hiked it Canada day long weekend and the trail was really really busy so we started pretty early. Easy with a little incline right at the top but very rewarding the whole way. Had a pretty amazing view for lunch

A good relaxed stroll, which for the most part doesn't involve hiking up. I was expecting to see these lakes that show on the terrain map, but you barely see them. It doesn't take away the beauty of the surrounding, as usual for this part of the country. I recommend, if you are driving from the East (Calgary), take highway 40, then the Smith Dorrien Trail from the Kananaskis lakes, a much shorter route than driving from Canmore!

great hike. one of my favorite. trail can get really busy so if you want to avoid that start early. Creek is not very high in the falls you can jump across them.

A nice ski tour to warm up your legs early in the season.

Fun day hike..great for small groups. Easy to start..then a bit of a climb. Bring water sandals...you have to cross some water..and easier if you change to sandals and leave by the path to the climb the rest of the way. On your return....sandals are dry...slip back on and good to go! Beautiful mountain meadows. Great to hike with the dogs too...not too many "tourists".
