This was the first hike I ever did two years ago, and we went again yesterday (April. 22) great for beginners or people who don't have a lot of time in the day. Very close drive from our home city of Calgary and easy to find as it is one turn before Nakiska ski hill. The falls are beautiful and relaxing! Would definitely do this hike again!
Great little Hike! Super fun for the whole family! Don't not get discouraged by the start of the trail being close to the mineral plant it gets so much better from there.
Terrible signage, once you reach the bench looking out to the spillway head up the actual canyon and it's nothing awesomeness from there! Better than expected!
Really enjoyed this hike, steep incline at the beginning got the blood pumping (in not in tip top shape) and the views at the lake are fantastic. Did the hike twice and successfully fished for cutthroat trout each time. Grizzly activity on the west ridge above the lake.
Great hike, the falls were just starting to melt, the ink pots were very interesting. Seeing the spring bubbling up through the sand at the bottom of the ponds was pretty cool.
Went April 20 crampons definitely made the hike enjoyable. Saw lots of people struggling in running shoes.
