We hiked the fescue loop today. Saw quite a few mule deer, bugs and birds. Bathroom stops along the way which was nice. A pretty easy 5km through the Alberta grasslands (although you're basically walking through a cut path surrounded constantly by cow poop). A few little steep parts but nothing too challenging.

Great hike !
I started from the Marmot road. I camped to Amethyst campground and the spot was awesome in the morning and at the sunset. I proposed to end with the Astoria valley because of the section in front of Old Horn Mountain... It's rather boring at this point if you go up !
The negative about this trail is the Portal campground section. They are many flies and mud.

If you do go to Maligne Lake it is definitely must do hike. It has absolutely everything you could ask for. You start the hike from the Maligne lake trail head (It is very well signed) and start a steady climb to the first viewpoint where towards the end it does get fairly steep until it levels out. The views of Maligne Lake and the Hall of the Gods are absolutely magnificent, and we just wished there was a bit more sun on the day we hiked. You can finish the hike here and loop back to Maligne Lake and we will rate that hike as moderate due to the length and steepness for the last km or so. However if your fitness levels allow, we would absolutely recommend pushing on to the Bald Hills summit that will add a couple of kms to the hike. It is very steep (see photos) for a few 100 metres but the 360 views of the Canadian Rockies you get at the top are just so worth the effort. Proper footwear and warm clothing a must. We did this in early october and we had snow showers on the summit. A bucket list hike!!

trail was snowy and icy towards the top.

Amazing to see my girls' first "on top of the world" moment. Beautiful trail up and rewarding views at the lookout. Make sure to take the trail to the apex (rock shelter) for the full extent of the wind off the glacier. Fun little hike that was not too difficult.

Excellent! It looks like an ok hike at the trailhead, but incredibly worth it! I thought to avoid the tourist trap and find something more remote, but I'm so glad we did it!
