a gorgeous hike to take. there's a few off the trail paths that lead to amazing spots well worth it.

A bit muddy and waist deep snow up top as of May 19. Beautiful frozen alpine lake this time of year!

I recommend doing the more difficult route! Nicer views. If so, do yourself a favour and don’t wear sandals!

Great hike for all ages. Mostly incline on the way up but worth it!

I just did this hike this past May long weekend. After attempting lake of the falls and turning back, we hiked this fork of the trail up to the lake, it took about 3 hours up from the fork and about half that going down. There is snow but not too deep and the lake is still mostly frozen but beautiful. I would recommend this trail, it's a steady accend but not too long.

We suggest doing the "difficult" path up and the "easy" path down. Very very steep stone steps on the "difficult" side which might be a bit too tricky for very small kids or older folks and the path is a little unstable in places. Trail can get a little tight (and therefore a bit more dangerous) when crowded so come early. Absolutely beautiful payoff at the top, the lakes are a must-see.

The difficult route is the way to go! lovely scenery and beautiful lakes!

Really nice hike, the lake at the top was beautiful with the blue glacier water. Most of the trail has a lot of snow and I’d go in June when it tapers off. Be careful of the ice and snow, especially at the lake where you think you can step somewhere but end up one leg through the snow into the cold water with your foot drenched

Great easy hike. Views are on the difficult path, did that up and took easy path down. Arrived at hike at 930 and parking lot was filling up. When we finished at 11 cars where in road till main highway. Get early or there will be lots of people! But would do again.

Was closed as of 8 May 2018.

Easy to do with kids, best views found on difficult route.

We went May Long weekend 2018 and they’re was still quite a bit of snow and some parts of the trail were a little icy, nothing that wasn’t passible though. The waterfall at the start was beautiful and Rawson Lake at the top is stunning. Great to start with the view of upper Kananaskis lake too. We are going to go back when it’s clear this summer to hopefully catch a glimpse of the crazy amounts of flowers people mention! Overall great hike and would definitely do it again!

Started out with the difficult way. The hike was pretty good for beginners. There were some spots that were a bit challenging for someone who is a complete novice. Lots of people there, beautiful views, and a nice hike. See a lot of people who brings their kids and dogs.

Easy and beautiful trail. I did ‘hard’up and ‘easy’down. Good for beginners

It’s an enjoyable hike and worth the effort and time, but also a little over-rated. It’s scenic and the hike through the tunnel is an experience.

Amazing views from the ridge, looking down at Rawson Lake on one side and Kananaskis Lake on the other side. The hike to Rawson is quite enjoyable, the hike up to the ridge is challenging but well worth it for the amazing views!

Great beginner hike!

I have done this trail for the last 3 years and I love the view every time

One of the best views I have ever seen! We got a hot and clear day which really helped. The trail from Rawson Lake up Sarrail ridge is HARD! It’s short but straight up, loose dirt, and steep! We had good hiking boots and poles which really helped make it easier. Although I saw lots of people in sneakers and they did just fine.

Highway closed to cars this year after the fire, 2018. this was a favorite hike and place to swim. I think they are allowing access to pedestrians and bicycles

lots of fun, plenty of spots to chill some beers in the lake at the top and take it all in. We did the "hard" trail up and the easy down.

beautiful views on the more difficult way up

Pays off to take the difficult path for the views, very busy on either trail. Watch for falling rocks from people descending when on the difficult trail.

Was a great beginner hike, super easy with my medium sized dog, and 8 year old nephew and we took the difficult trail. Only downside is the amount of people, it was very busy but the veiws were still incredible!

Beautiful lake. Be careful of the falling rocks that can be triggered by the rock climbers.

Good way to spend a few hours.
Very busy even on the more difficult path
Great views

Great hike. Loved the hike. Was very hard, but we took a lot of water and rested often so it all went great. Even got rain when we got at the top.

We took our kids, 14, 5 and 3 on this. Our five year old did the entire hike and the three year old spent some time in the carrier. It was a good hike for the kids and beautiful lakes at the top. We did the easy route both there and back. It took about an hour to get to the lake (with lots of stops) and then about half an hour back. Trail was dry and did see some pushing strollers up but I think it would be a hard push

This was a beautiful hike! Even the more difficult trail was fine for my 4 and 7 year old, they loved it! The views at the end are so worth it!

Awesome beginner, family friendly hike.
We took the difficult way in and easy way out. Carried a 10 week old baby and this was the perfect level of difficulty for postpartum exercise!
I was happy to find a few benches along the way to use for breast feeding and changing babies bum :)
