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.

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

Did this one Oct 15, 2017. Well established trail, first part along Upper Kananaskis Lake is a gradual incline. Then gets more steep as you go away from Upper Kananaskis Lake towards Rawson Lake. Used crampons on the steeper part and they were so helpful. Highly recommended. A little snow and ice which gradually got deeper towards Rawson Lake. I would rate the trail from the parking lot to Rawson as easy but I would rate the trail from Rawson Lake to Sarrail Ridge as hard. It's very steep. I wouldn't attempt it without crampons but there were lots of younger people doing it in runners. To me that's too dangerous. The snow at the top was about knee deep but the views of both Upper and Lower Kananaskis Lakes was gorgeous.
Btw there is a potty at Rawson Lake but make sure to bring your own toilet paper.

BUSY!!! Beautiful hike great for families, not a relaxing hike due to the high volume of people.

Nice easy hike to beautiful falls. Getting across the river at the beginning of the trail without getting wet is tricky - best to have an extra pair of shoes to cross the river with. Quiet trail as we did not see anyone else on the hike today.

Excellent hike with small kids or seniors. My 3.5 yr old was able to hike the entire route with a pack on. Yes it’s busy, but kids don’t mind. No place where you picnic at the falls in case you’re looking to do that.
