nice hikes with lots of choices.

Not a great one when it's still damp out. About 1km in, we ran into a puddle we couldn't get around without wading through. Considering how thick the mosquitos were, we decided to turn back & try another trail.

I would recommend going a little further to the Elephant Rocks as well. On the right side of the lake is a little trail that will lead you to them. It's only about another 10-15 minute climb to them.

We got to this trail at about 10.45am. We saw 2 people on the the at up and lost count at 40 on the way down! The trail led us to the lake. The round trip took us 2.5 hours.

We followed the signs for snowshoeing that takes you on a different path to the one above. It is hard work and pretty steep in some areas but well worth the climb.

As the path is popular the trail is well walked so we didn't wear snowshoes.

There is a toilet block at that entrance which is well maintained.

We hiked up the snowshoe trail with crampons instead of snowshoes The trail was pretty packed down. We were unable to continue on past the lake because we did not have snowshoes.

Highly recommend taking exit 118 to Chester Lake instead of going through Canmore due to the road conditions.

Great snowshoe trail with the dogs! Quite the leg workout on the way up but well worth the views!

A understandably very popular snowshoe hike. The kids (8 & 10) did well. Great views before you get to the lake.
