Very challenging hike, but worth it! The trail isn't well marked in the initial scramble area (taking the loop counterclockwise) making it difficult to choose the best path. I'd definitely do this hike again though.

Loved it. Gorgeous views. Not too strenuous but a good workout!

Very pleasant snowshoeing circuit. Fairly easy for kids and not busy at all. Great views once you get to Marl Lake.

Good little hike. went in Feb 2017.

Definitely make sure to bring headlamps for each member of your group.

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

Great little trail system and not far from Calgary. The trails were packed down but we snowshoed anyway.

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.

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

We did this trail in January. Microspikes were needed for sure. The views made the steep climb well worth it.

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 .
