Trail is nice and in the shade. The lake is beautiful but unfortunately didn't get to see much because of the smoke. Better in the morning light.

Beautiful trail through the trees to a perfect lake. You have to hop around in spots to avoid mud (we were hiking in tennis shoes).

The trail was very rooted and mucky. While not a difficult trail; it was very tedious. No birds or wildlife spotted during our hike and not at all scenic until we reached the lake. Beautiful Glacier lake and views once we arrived.

Don’t let the sign at the trail fool you. “Easy Stroll” Not!

Quick short walk down to a beautiful spot in the river.

We wanted to go on June 14th, but the parking area (and I'm guessing, the trail itself) is closed

We hiked this trail in late May. The trail was clear of snow, but there were several areas of the trail that were wet or spongy. Most of these areas could be avoided by walking along the outer borders of the trail. Elevation gain was not bad at all; however, there were lots of exposed roots along the trail and few views of the surrounding mountains until you reach the end of the trail. The view at Chephren Lake was beautiful, and we were fortunate to observe a small avalanche from a distance, which was super, super cool.

Beautiful lake, well worth the effort. 99% of trail is in the trees. But the destination is more then worth it

A beautiful pit stop that could be very easily overlooked! A short walk down the hill gets you to the canyon with gorgeous falls. You could make this a 30 minute stop, or carry on exploring the trails along the river.

Went on Aug 12. Great hike with a dog, and the lake was absolutely stunning.

Beautiful outcome at the end of the trail. However, the trail is filled with lots of large roots and a very steep desent to the lake.

Beautiful waters beautiful rocks beautiful mountain views on this easy hike off the Icefields Parkway. Love this!

Quick hike off the main road - beautiful views of the canyon and the Rockies.

You're hiking through the forest with nothing about but the birds and bees. You see a hint of blue through the trees and then you walk into the clearing. Suddenly right in front of you is the most beautiful glacier lake, at the foot of the mountains. It's like you have wandered into paradise.

This short jaunt off the ice fields parkway is worth a quick stop. You hike downhill to a bridge and canyons filled with gushing water. Many people hike off trail to get a closer look. Only downside is the walk uphill to the parking lot.

Super Easy stroll along a very lightly traveled trail. A Little something for everyone. Can probably be done year round.

Short, easy hike to an incredible river crossing where the 20-yard-wide river rips through a slot canyon at high speed - terrifying to be close to the edge, as many people wander pretty close to the river off the main trail. Stay on the bridge and it's a beautiful experience showing the raw power of nature.
