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.

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

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

So much snow. Fantastic as always.

Beautiful scenery, particularly on a sunny day after a snowfall.

It was a awesome hike and the view was awesome!!!

So beautiful! Definitely take shoe spikes in the winter! Lifesavers!

Easy family trail/walk. It's crowded even in winter, I couldn't imagine during summer with strollers... Cleats recommended. Nice view and fun for kids.

Nice and easy trail. Very icy/snowy in winter, pikes cleats recommended. Lower trail closed during winter due to ice and ice falls but accessible with care. That's probably the better part of the trail, don't skip it if you have the right equipment.

Drive from Lake Louise to the Athabaska Glacier and hiked to the toe of the Glacier. Loved it

Feb 04.
My phone died, so the recording is inaccurate.

-15, still comfortable temperature as long as the appropriate clothing is used.

Some steeper parts, but has rails almost the whole way along, handy. Hiking sandles would be comfortable in the summer. Saw several kids around 5yo doing just fine. Path is narrow especially with heavy traffic, strollers not ideal.

Completed this in 1hr at a moderate pace, plenty of stops for photos.

VERY busy in the summer until past the upper Falls.

Really nice trail, with nice views of the Elbow river valley. Trail was a bit icy today; but, not a real problem with ice cleats. Will definitely check it out again during the summer hiking season. Would also be a nice snowshoeing trail once the snow returns.
