Super short but kids love to be around such big trees! Very pretty and well maintained stroll :)

Beautiful short hike. Only takes 30 minutes. Lots of spots to cut of and go do other hikes to different lakes and some waterfalls.

Easy peasy but beautiful.

Looks like it may have been nice a few years ago. Trail #3 is fairly overgrown. Trail #1 and 2 are open, but not much for sight seeing other than forestry views.

Beautiful falls

Lots of steep climbs. Challenging, but worth the effort.

Short but a lot of unusually beautiful forest views. The handrail was a kind touch on the steeper step down.

great shady trail. well built wooden staircases and boardwalks keep us from trampling the lush and delicate natural beauty on this trail.

Great walk to stretch your legs, climb on some rocks.

Trail was in great shape early July 2017. Lots of great water features along this hike, give yourself some time to enjoy the sights!

We attempted to loop back past Marpole Lake but avalanche debris slowed us down. That trail is closed but currently passable though we did lose the trail along the rocks near the end. Recommend bringing GPS if you give that a shot.

You need to reserve it in advance .

In order transit the Lake O'Hara fireroad, you need to either:1) walk it (11-13km one way) or 2) make a reservation on the shuttle bus prior to the hike.
Another option is to book a stay at the Lake O'Hara Lodge: http://www.lakeohara.com/

Road in is still closed (scheduled to open mid June). Ended up hiking the 22km return trip from the parking lot into the lake. 440m climb is gradual for the first 7km then steeper the rest of the way in. Lake is still a little frozen in the middle but should be open in a couple of days. I'll definitely return when the road is open and hike the trail.

Loved this trail!

Wiwaxy gap trail is amazing. We did clock wise on wiwaxy starting from lake Ohara to Oesa and back to Ohara.

Nice little walk through the giant trees

Did this with my Adult son a few years ago. I did not have enough water and it was a hot day! I made it there and back but really felt it on the way back. Despite that loved the hike!

An excellent short walk through one of the most beautiful forests !

if you love big Cedars and rain forests like I do, you'll definitely want to make this stop between Glacier National Park, CA. and Revelstoke. It is very similar to the 'Trail of Cedars' in Glacier National Park, in the U.S.

A beautiful short 0.5 km walk on a boardwalk with stairs through old growth trees

Beautiful hike! So worth it! So many waterfalls along the way. We did the loop on our way back and you'll be on the side of a rocky mountain with spectacular views of the mountains and glaciers!

Gorgeous views. Ended up summitting mount Yukness. Stunning views around every corner.

The views are amazing! We did the whole alpine trail.

Beautiful trail up the side of Mount Revelstoke. I would NOT say that this is good for all skill levels. If you are starting at the bottom going up, it is definitely moderate-strenuous, and if you are starting from the top it is still moderate due to the many scrambling points, and steep inclines you must overcome. I took the trail down and then connected to the bottom half of the Summit Trail (which is significantly less rustic), and then the Mount Revelstoke Trail which will bring you all the way back to town (the whole thing ends up at 9.5 miles). It is a really neat way to see the changing ecotypes of the region and of the mountain.

This is a short boardwalk trail through a group of surprisingly amazing old growth trees. We had no idea what we were driving by and almost missed. We were very glad we chose to stop and check them out. Only took about 25 mins. Could have done it quicker, but took lots of pictures and took our time to enjoy.

Did this hike a few years ago easily one of my favourites. We did it in 3 days and 2 nights. The switch backs at the end can wear on the legs but worth it to see all the falls
