Combined with Bow River and Moraine Trail, all together a scenic 3 hour hike.

hiked this last weekend and it was my first time. it was definitely a challenging trail because it's straight up. When we got to the top, it was extremely windy so glad I brought a very good soft shell jacket to block all the wind. I think im ok with not hiking this trail again as now I've done it. AMAZING views at the top :)

While an extremely beautiful hike, with the weather this time of year it is extremely dangerous. If you’re going up now make sure you have snow shoes, the snow is 3+ feet deep once you hit about 3.25 miles in (probably more now). The trail is not visible anymore. The weather was so bad when we hit 3.5 miles we had to turn around right before the Mt. Edith/Cory Pass crossing.

Close to home and decent views that you don’t need to work hard for.

Enjoyed this hike. A little muddy after the rain

Is there a spot to lock up a bike at the trailhead after biking up the gravel road?

Easy trail even in bad weather. Beautiful lake. We took the lower trail back which is a bit more challenging. Must do hike if staying in Canmore. 1 1/2 hours tops including time to sit and enjoy the views.

Nice trail, with some great views of the falls. No gear needed.

Nice trail for a fall hike. A skiff of snow at the base of the trail, turning into about 10 cm up at the lake. Made it up to the lake in mostly sunshine, then a small squall blew in from the West bringing light snow and blustery winds. Nice hike; a great way to close off the hiking season.

We did Tyrwhitt to Highwood— magnificent view!

A steady incline of infinite switchbacks. A much better way than paying $60 on the gondola to get up Sulphur, but not the most interesting of hikes. Most of the time is spent switchbacking under the gondola.
