Beautiful rocky canyon trail! Supportive footwear a must.

Great little hike, heavily trafficked.

Went up to climb at the crag to climb and realized I'd never been to the top of the hill! The view was awesome, better than prairie mountain in my opinion. I think this will be my new go to if I want a quick hike without having to commit to a whole day of trekking.

Fantastic hike! Fairly steep towards the end but the view is entirely worth it. The trail could be marked better so allow yourself extra time to find it.

The view is spectacular at the top.

Beautiful, nice and easy hike!

Short hike, beautiful on top, very windy

What an amazing trail with rewarding beautiful views after only a short period of hiking! The trail is muddy and snowy and slippery in a few sections still, and the last kilometre is all snow covered, at times knee deep. The lake remains frozen, but it was all still breathtaking!

une fois rendu au sommet, quel vue.. a faire absolument!

Great hike with wonderful view from the top. Pretty steep trail in some parts.

Nice and short. Steep at some parts. A bit of smashed up stones as you get closer to the top which can be somewhat slippery. Not too tedious and pretty easy overall.

Did it today, conditions were great, quite easy one, there is only one section, which is a bit steeper, all the rest is not bad.. Beautiful views from the top, nicely spent day..

Easy hike. Lots of loose and big gravel. 60-80 minutes round trip. Take a coffee and enjoy the bench seat of the Bow Valley.

Good for beginners and kids. It was cool to see the rock climbers off to the side. Other than that, not much for views on this hike. Make sure you have hiking boots for this one as there are lots of places that you can hurt your feet or roll an ankle.

The app is definitely a bit misleading. I don’t think it would be wise to attempt this as a summer hike in June. And it is located north of Lake Louise on highway 93–listing it as near Field, B.C. is not accurate. Also, we took our dog up there and she was fine—not sure where the no dogs part come from .

Definitely a great scramble. Views are far superior to Cirque Peak. And very few people on the trail.

Easy and pretty. Did in May and was still some snow around. Micro spikes were helpful - the snow was quite hard at this point so it was slippery.

Just a heads up, this trail is currently closed as of June 7, 2018

Went yesterday and almost got to the lake. Last mile was waist deep snow—we followed someone’s snow steps until they stopped! Might be melted next week! Otherwise gorgeous lookouts on the way up and fairly easy ascents.

Not really a hike. But worth seeing once.

very stony path leading up to and through the canyon. at first I thought it wasn't that great until we got deeper and it was so awesome to be so deep down and the small waterfall was lovely to have a beer next to. can get really windy so take a wind breaker. start June still have to walk over ice for a few metres near the end but most melted. wear waterproof boots. not spectacular but was a nice change in scenery and I think worth the exploring.

Very short hike roundtrip, about an hour and a half. Beautiful views at the top, mountains in almost all directions. The elevation is a great workout for the legs, hiking poles helpful for the decent.

Loved seeing the many many hoodoos. Was surprised you could actually walk in amongst and over them.

Went in August 2017. Glad we got to see it before the fire.

Done this Saturday. Beautiful hike with lots of good views. Some parts are really steep but definitely worth the climb. Some experience in scrambling is preferential for that trail for some passings. However only for one or two transitions. I was early morning on the peak and had plenty of wildlife encounter on the way up. Make sure to bring proper gear.

Beautiful views! Short and sweet!

Always enjoy the canyon walk up to waterfalls at end. Look 3/4 way up on left for faint pictographs

short trail with a few switchbacks. definitely doable in jeans.
