Spectacular view of lake at 4km. Easy 1.3 km walk south out of parking lot, to just past the creek/waterfall running into Upper Kananaskis Lake. The 2.7 km quite uphill but manageable trail for us 60-year olds for a gorgeous view of the lake surrounded by snowy and rocky peaks. Somewhat muddy at the top and a little snow (June 21 2017), but no issues if you have hiking boots and the college students among us did fine in various athletic footware.

Super easy walk in the mountains, very nice, great for beginners.

Loved this hike! Started at the bottom (lake Louise) with sunshine and when we got to the tea house it was snowing! Got there just in time! Check dates and hours when the tea house is open!!! Great hike! Good workout and great views!

Loved this hike! Didn't know there was a back country camping spot with an outhouse at the top! Beautiful views, good workout! Waterton is always a treat! About 4hr return moderate hike.

Short and sweet! Great view of waterton village! Little chipmunks to great you at the top, very windy too. Only moderate because of the steep incline. Take breaks cause the view is worth it!

Just a classic! Perfect for any level hiker. Keep left at the fork for the more "difficult" path but it's nothing, just more scenic! Gorgeous once you reach the ponds, water colour is stunning. Usually a busy trail as it's very popular. I've done the hike twice now. 1-2hr return depending on how long you admire the ponds!

Great spot to send the day. To my rockclimbing shoes and spent some time bouldering. This is a great beginner hike with mutiple routes to take to and from, as I know some are more inclined to hikes where you dont have to take the same path to and from. J.
