Compared to EEOR, I found this hike to be quite easy. It's quite steep on the way up and we saw a lot of people with hiking poles, but it wasn't absolutely necessary to have them. There was no scrambling involved and for the most part, the path was quite easy. (Probably because it's so heavily trafficked). We went in the morning on a Wednesday and it wasn't busy at all. Just a few people here and there. It's a fun workout for a rewarding view. We kinda jogged some of the way down, so it only took us max 45 minutes to get to the bottom. Was a super fun hike and there were people of all ages on the trail!

Absolutely loved it. It's steep but very doable and what a beautiful hike all the way up. Once you get to the lake, it is stunning. Make sure to walk all the up to the end of the lake. So pretty and you can enjoy a little picnic there. The next trail is Sarrail trail which is extremely steep. I haven't done it as I have only 6-7 hike under my belt but it's on my futur list.

Our group was made of varying fitness and we managed to make it to the lake in two hours and twenty minutes. The descent took an hour 45. I would recommend trekking poles because the trail is quite steep both ways and with the loose shale it would be easy to lose your footing and yard sale down the trail.

The trail gets really crowded if you don't go early enough. Also, I'd consider the trail from start all the way to the ink pots to be more moderate level than easy. I consider the trail to the upper and lower falls itself to be easy.

Beautiful, easy hike but often way too busy.

moderate trail at the beginning with some steep uphill that will slow down even the most in shape hikers. Once at the lookout the view was spectacular, be sure to stay to the left in order to stay on trail. bring lots of water there is no water in the trail.

this was my 2nd mountain hike experience and my first one in the rockies... my phone died where it indicated the end point but we walked back along the lake to our starting point.
i thought the scramble part would be harder but it was great and we had a very informative conversation with the forest ranger at the top. we took jewel pass on the way back which was a beautiful trail

unfortunately we did not experience the spectacular views of the mountains due to smoke from the BC wild fires. I can only imagine what they look like but I did see pictures others had posted and they truly are gorgeous.
