Moderate hike if you are not that experienced! Return was 3-4hr, nice hike but the views are not that incredible. I wouldn't do this one again. Not worth it in my opinion!

Loved this hike! Started at the bottom (lake Louise) with sunshine and when we got to the tea house it was snowing! Got there just in time! Check dates and hours when the tea house is open!!! Great hike! Good workout and great views!

Easy hike, first attempt was in the spring when there was still ice which was dangerous and had to turn around because we did not have ice cleats. 2nd attempt we did in the summer and it was nice. We brought a first time hiker on this one!

Loved this hike! Didn't know there was a back country camping spot with an outhouse at the top! Beautiful views, good workout! Waterton is always a treat! About 4hr return moderate hike.

Just a classic! Perfect for any level hiker. Keep left at the fork for the more "difficult" path but it's nothing, just more scenic! Gorgeous once you reach the ponds, water colour is stunning. Usually a busy trail as it's very popular. I've done the hike twice now. 1-2hr return depending on how long you admire the ponds!

Views were amazing! Had witness to an unreal inversion! Worth the final scramble to the true summit!

First 5km are paved (boring). The loop at the end of the pavement is great and not crowded (on a Tuesday). Recommend that you ride a bike to end of pavement and then hike the loop, riding back after.

Still waist deep snow in some parts so make sure that you're wearing properly footwear and clothing! We only went to the top of the ridge and back, taking us five hours. We didn't do the full horseshoe. Pay good attention to the map because we went off of it a few times by accident and ended up lots in the trees. View was completely worth it though!

Great spot to send the day. To my rockclimbing shoes and spent some time bouldering. This is a great beginner hike with mutiple routes to take to and from, as I know some are more inclined to hikes where you dont have to take the same path to and from. J.

Had a great time hiking out to the lake today. Some parts of the trail are tricky to follow because of the snow, but it wasn't too bad. Follow the footsteps and you'll be fine. Not sure if I would backpack out there, all the melting snow made the campsites pretty soaked.
