Amazing views, easy to hike. Very close from Canmore .
be prepared to wear warm clothes because once you are walking in the canyon, it is cold.

You need ice cleats but is a fantastic experience to walk on iced watrer spring leading to water falls.

It is difficult to find out the road to the lake due to limited sign. Recommended consult ppl before hiking, definitely worth for it. 5 stars

This was an amazing trail to snowshoe. We arrived at 7.45am and were the only two on the trail until the last kilometre or two. It was so peaceful. I’m not a fit person so was worried I wouldn’t manage this hike, however, I managed it well with regular breaks! It took us about 5 hours to complete (baring in mind my fitness, stopping for photos, one proper 15 minute break for tea and walking through deep snow). My legs were killer by the end!

A lot of it was pathed for us by previous snowshoers, however, the path suddenly stopped and we ended up fending for ourselves for a while and took a couple of wrong turns. Thankfully the app helped us get back on track. The full thing ended up taking us 13km!

The sites were insanely beautiful. Particularly at sunrise. Ending at the river was a treat and a nice way to finish. Will definitely be back in the summer!

Side note - the camping parking lot was closed. We ended up ditching the car by the gate and this seemed to be ok as when we returned there were 6-7 cars there too.

Easy. Did this in winter and very chill walk, not really a hike. Great views and nice when you have the trail to yourself in winter.

Really nice. Took us almost three hours in the winter with a quick detour to view Johnston canyon. Really nice and easily done, not much elevation gain at all and easy for most hikers. Wouldn’t want to do this in the summer as it’s probably too busy.

Winter hike that was nicely traversable. Not icy, just hard packed snow and a good trail to follow. Fairly flat the whole way and great views of a bluebird sky.

Great views a
on the return

So much snow and a great trail

A beautiful unexpected bit of country side. A good dog walk for our 4 month old Goldie. Freezing weather didn’t put us off and luckily the sun was shining.
At the end of the trail are some beautiful houses to lust after too.

Stunning views the whole way!

Nice hiking for cold days.the hike is easy to do and it has beautiful views.it is recommendable to wear ice cleats/crampons.

An excellent training hike close to Calgary. We try to do it 3 times a month or more all year round if we are training for expeditions. Not sure why it is listed as a scramble, though. No scrambling involved. Well defined trail. Excellent views. Definitely take microspikes in fall, winter and spring.

The weather was nice ! Trail was not busy at time we were there . I love the fact that people who had their dogs were on leashes . I really enjoyed the hike to the lower falls .

Did the canyon trail hike on February 9th. Needed yaktrax on the ice even with fresh snow. Do not recommend going without some sort of ice cleats or grips. Highly encourage trekking poles or ski poles for those less steady on their feet, especially coming back down. Worth the hike to see the ice climbers. We went past the climbers and blazed a trail in the new snow up past the cave to the right. Had lunch on a boulder and enjoyed the views

Did the trail to the Upper Falls on February 8th right after the snowfall. Beautiful hike. Used yaktrax’s to help steady myself on the trail. Probably didn’t need them. Highly recommend for beginners

Physically challenging pretty much right out of the parking lot. A lot of undulating hills along the ridge will have you cursing on the way back. Stunning views in every direction from up top.

Feb 1st 2017 • Lots of snow, snowshoes needed. Lots of elevation gain at the beginning but well worth the work. Levels out to some amazing views!

So much snow. Fantastic as always.
