Johnston Canyon is apparently where you take your small kids, great grandparents, or less than fit out of town visitors to see waterfalls. Too crowded! So many tourists in flip flops moving slowly. The hike past the waterfalls was at least a bit of a workout, but the ink pots we're not an amazing sight. It was a nice and peaceful break from the crowd though.

Ran 2 miles out 2 miles back on this trail. Very nice, great views. Would love to do much more.

Larch valley is beautiful. Sentinel pass is worth the extra hike and offers great views

Meh hike. Steep. Nice views. I agree with other reviewers that the trail gets confusing on the descent. I think that one is a one and done for me.

Very nice walk/rock climbing as well. Traffic noise only for the first 5 min of the walk, then very beautiful views. Waterfall is stunning .

Beautiful scenery, glad that I had my hiking pole along with me as there is a pretty good incline uphill in several places. Worth the extra effort to go further up to see the Elephant Rocks and the smaller lakes

Did this hike with a few friends. Took us 3.5 hours with stops and lunch break at the top. We got snow and a bit of rain. But making it to the tattered Canada flag in the snow made it feel like a great accomplishment :)
I probably wouldn't take my kids on this hike, they like more waterfalls and lakes not just beautiful views.
But overall a nice quick hike to get some fresh air.

Great scenic views and easy peasy Hike.

Very easy! It feels tropical because of high trees covering sunlight.
