Easy hike with beautiful scenery

Nice trail. We did not get high enough to see the lake from the mountain or to the tea house (only 2.5 miles up) due to a bear sighting on the trail. Crampons not needed yet, but poles should be used as there are some icy/snowy/slushy spots.

Family friendly trail. Great to do with kids.

Great hike.... Very hard climb up the face to the top. Some fairly big boulders. If you stay climbers left it is easier up and then down a scree slope rather then the boulder field.

Incredible views across the valley, a bit of snow on the peaks makes the mountains texture stand out. Tough hike but with the views it's not a slog.

Quick jaunt on our way home from Lake Louise. Well marked and beautiful views of the falls and across the valley.

Really enjoyed this hike! Steady incline. Great views! Through forest for about an hour to the pass, then it opens up. At the pass, go left rather than right. Minimal scrambling up to a couple of peaks.

Gorgeous winter hike! Views are spectacular! When you get to the lake, you may see some Whiskey Jacks, which are pretty grey and white birds. Hold your your hand with a little bit of trail mix, or some crust from your sandwich and they will eat right out of your hand.

Great hike! Missed the peak of the golden larches but so beautiful anyway. Almost missed the trail head ( you turn left off the ptarmigan cirque/Highwood meadows trail at the sign which says "Fragile Area, stay on designated trails". Lots of snow on trail at this time of year , mental note to bring trax or crampons next time :).

An easy loop with Bison encounters. We had to shoo two bison off the trail to complete the loop.

Nice moderate fall or spring hike.Some limited views west of the mountains. May be cattle in the area. Very similar in distance, elevation and views as Fullerton Loop.

Plus 5c today, snowy but trail is hard packed. Awesome day

A great alternative to the out and back for Prairie Mountain. Going down the backside allows for a more gentle descent.

Things have gone downhill up top recently though, the nice couple that ran the bodega have retired and it's now a Tim Hortons. I realize it's remote, but $15 for a danish is not reasonable. Pack your own lunch.
