Amazing day with the kids! This is not your standard hike, everything is very well groomed and paved through out. All though not much of a hike, beautiful day and waterfalls!

Awesome classic single track for mountain biking! We have also hiked this and it is nice if you are looking for a more relaxing one compared to ones with a higher incline and elevation.

This area gets very busy on the weekends. I'm fortunate to live in north Calgary so I love taking the kids up for a quick visit and fresh air on a week nights (it's not as busy). The kids love exploring the area and teepees others made ! I think this trail is great if you have young children.

Not a very technical trail, great for beginners. We have also done this in spring where there was snow and ice and we did just fine. Good views of Banff

Very nice intuitive trail. This area can get very busy on nice days and weekends etc. I wouldn't suggest going if you don't like crowds, or plan to go during the day on a week day. Enjoyable with the whole family! Fun watching the rock climbers too :)

Short and easy hike. Suitable for all ages. Kids loved running around the trails near the waterfall ! We stopped at troll falls, will need to explore further!

Great hike with the family!

Beautiful hike, the smells and views were wonderful. Fantastic teahouse! We continued up to the lookout and it was quite windy but amazing to look back at The Lake Louise Fairmont and see how far you've gone. Quite a busy trail, but not so busy that we didn't enjoy ourselves. I found the Lake Agnes hike to be much busier.

A cool forest setting; we cut through and walked along the vermillion lakes.

Pretty awesome hike. We took the more difficult trail on the way up, and the easy trail back. We also hiked up to Whitemans Pond which was well worth the extra effort.

More of a walk than a hike. It is on a completely paved path along a stream leading to the waterfall. Kinda cool to check out the little cave near the fall. I think this would be good for families but I did it as a nice little walk after a big hike earlier that day!

I absolutely loved this hike. I was challenging since it is a steep incline with a little scramble at the end to get to the peak. It was super windy the day I went but it was worth the views. My friend had her dog with us and she managed just fine but I could see it being hard for some smaller dogs. If you have the time definitely check it out! I think it took us around 3 hours but we spent a good 25 mins sitting at the top eating a snack and taking in the views!
