Is there a spot to lock up a bike at the trailhead after biking up the gravel road?

Easy trail even in bad weather. Beautiful lake. We took the lower trail back which is a bit more challenging. Must do hike if staying in Canmore. 1 1/2 hours tops including time to sit and enjoy the views.

Nice trail for a fall hike. A skiff of snow at the base of the trail, turning into about 10 cm up at the lake. Made it up to the lake in mostly sunshine, then a small squall blew in from the West bringing light snow and blustery winds. Nice hike; a great way to close off the hiking season.

We did Tyrwhitt to Highwood— magnificent view!

This was a great hike and the views from the ridge were 110% worth every step! It does get steep going up from Rawson Lake to Sarrail Ridge and the trail got muddy and slippery on the way down, but between the parking lot and Rawson Lake was fine.

We didnt get to do the entire loop because it was getting too windy and the snow was knee deep, but it was still amazing! we will definitely be doing this again! Cleats would be helpful. It was getting a little too slippery in the forest area.

Great hike.... Very hard climb up the face to the top. Some fairly big boulders. If you stay climbers right 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.
