Absolutely amazing 360degree views from the peak! Great hike!!

Always love this hike in the fall but this was the first winter attempt and it was stunning. Lots of elevation over a short distance but the trail is well kept and easy to follow due to its popularity.

We had a south western wind so it got a bit unpleasant out of the treeline but it’s not far from the treeline to the peak. The winds made it so cold up there my iphone wouldn’t work, sapped the battery in about 2 minutes of photos. I’d recommend tech gloves, face masks and a charger pack to anyone else looking for some great shots at the top.

We wore spikes (small ones) and used poles and that was plenty of grip and stability. Otherwise it was a fantastic sunny day and a beauty of a mountain.

nice and short hike for our first in Banff, great views along the way and nothing difficult to encounter on the way. cleats made a huge difference because the packed snow trail was a bit slippery without them.

Did this in winter, pretty boring

We went on this walk while considering this location for an outdoors wedding. It is a very easy walk at an absolutely stunning site - the water, the
Mountains and the great blue skies. What is there to not like?

Really beautiful and we didn't see anyone. Pretty snowy but we could still make it ok. Will definitely be returning in summer!

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.

Great little hike with fantastic views! Short & easy, and seems to be a popular trail as there were lots of people.

Saw a herd of deer...it was a nice walk.

Such a rewarding hike.

Sunny but a bit cold at the top with the wind.
Challenging hike because of the snow, the last 200 meters are tricky.
Clits not essential but recommended.
Awesome views as soon as you leave the forest.

Very short.
good option if you are planning to spend the big part of the day skiing in canmore nordic center.

This walk will take you around 35 minutes.
Around 4:30 PM we started.

Definitely make sure to bring headlamps for each member of your group.

Great little trail system and not far from Calgary. The trails were packed down but we snowshoed anyway.

Easy, scenic trail. If you're staying overnight at the Oster Lake camp, however, be prepared for bison encounters as they tend to congregate here (as evidenced by the droppings you'll find). Give them lots of space, and get in your tent when it gets dark so you don't surprise them. We were kind of stuck in our tent as they were within 10 m of us for a large portion of the night. Cool, but a little nerve wracking. Beautiful stars too.

very challenging but once you get up there it is all worth the climb!

Great climb even with snow

Good, steep hike. 3 hours to summit and around 2.5 to decent. the views were decent.

I love this hike in the summer so I decided to try it in the winter and it was wonderful! It was challenging in spots but it was fine! Due to all the snow I took a wrong turn and couldn’t find the lakes. However, I did manage to scale my way up to the summit which was amazing! And the snow made it a lot of FUN for me and my pup to slide back on down!

Great switchbacks and views!

Awsome Hike! - Complete January 21, 2018
Very cold at the top but worth it for the veiws! Easily do-able with crampons! To windy to walk along the ridge but will be back in the summer!

Beautiful views of Banff and a great little hike to get your heart pumping, very low time commitment required so you can plan multiple activities in a day and still get a good hike in!

Beautiful vistas, quite a workout bring your walking poles

Awesome hike with great reward at the end. I believe this is also called inges mine??? Very hot to do in summer. No shade on trail.

nice scenery and outstanding view at the top

Breathtaking scenery. Crossing back and forth over the wooden bridges is a real treat!

Short and simple but plenty to be awed with. :)

One of our favorite places to go and relax. Beautiful scenery and nice to have a small lake that is used for a variety of activities. Wading, swimming, beginner cliff jumping, scuba, catch and release fishing, etc.

Very cold the day I did it. In the trees it was so nice, I was peeling off layers. Beyond the treeline it was savagely windy and cold at -30. It was also snowing, so I'll have to go back on a clear day for the views. I had crampons, but never used them. Closer to the treeline, there were a few steep slippery spots. Well packed all the way.
