beautiful beginning to a relentless climb! understatement, I plan on making this my first hike of the next season.
you climb and climb and climb stop take a break.... Those last few hours of going up and you still have few more hours of going up! wonderful hike

Very challenging hike, but worth it! The trail isn't well marked in the initial scramble area (taking the loop counterclockwise) making it difficult to choose the best path. I'd definitely do this hike again though.

Such a rewarding hike.

Loved it. Gorgeous views. Not too strenuous but a good workout!

Great for beginners. It was snowing when we started and it was beautiful!

all kinds of snow for skiing big cornices right now I would be careful

Sunny but a bit cold at the top with the wind.
Challenging hike because of the snow, the last 200 meters are tricky.
Clits not essential but recommended.
Awesome views as soon as you leave the forest.

Very pleasant snowshoeing circuit. Fairly easy for kids and not busy at all. Great views once you get to Marl Lake.

Very short.
good option if you are planning to spend the big part of the day skiing in canmore nordic center.

This walk will take you around 35 minutes.
Around 4:30 PM we started.

Amazing views, easy to hike. Very close from Canmore .
be prepared to wear warm clothes because once you are walking in the canyon, it is cold.

You need ice cleats but is a fantastic experience to walk on iced watrer spring leading to water falls.

Definitely make sure to bring headlamps for each member of your group.

It is difficult to find out the road to the lake due to limited sign. Recommended consult ppl before hiking, definitely worth for it. 5 stars

Great little trail system and not far from Calgary. The trails were packed down but we snowshoed anyway.

This was an amazing trail to snowshoe. We arrived at 7.45am and were the only two on the trail until the last kilometre or two. It was so peaceful. I’m not a fit person so was worried I wouldn’t manage this hike, however, I managed it well with regular breaks! It took us about 5 hours to complete (baring in mind my fitness, stopping for photos, one proper 15 minute break for tea and walking through deep snow). My legs were killer by the end!

A lot of it was pathed for us by previous snowshoers, however, the path suddenly stopped and we ended up fending for ourselves for a while and took a couple of wrong turns. Thankfully the app helped us get back on track. The full thing ended up taking us 13km!

The sites were insanely beautiful. Particularly at sunrise. Ending at the river was a treat and a nice way to finish. Will definitely be back in the summer!

Side note - the camping parking lot was closed. We ended up ditching the car by the gate and this seemed to be ok as when we returned there were 6-7 cars there too.

Easy. Did this in winter and very chill walk, not really a hike. Great views and nice when you have the trail to yourself in winter.

Really nice. Took us almost three hours in the winter with a quick detour to view Johnston canyon. Really nice and easily done, not much elevation gain at all and easy for most hikers. Wouldn’t want to do this in the summer as it’s probably too busy.

Winter hike that was nicely traversable. Not icy, just hard packed snow and a good trail to follow. Fairly flat the whole way and great views of a bluebird sky.
