This was a real pleasant surprise. This hike has it all. Walk right next to a beautiful lake, scramble through some flooded areas, some forest, walk across a barren area with views of the river downstream of the falls and finally some fantastic waterfalls! This is now near the top of my all time favorites.

Short moderately steep switchbacks then lovely walk to a beautiful Yoho Lake. Swam in the lake and just hung with the ducks and other hikers.

I honestly didn’t want to go on this hike as I’m in favor of more challenging trails, but my girlfriend demanded we go. I’m glad she did...we took the most scenic pictures here out of our entire 6 days in Banff National Park. The views are spectacular and absolutely worth every second. Just be sure to arrive early (7am??) as it is a hotbed for the tour busses. We started about 7:15am and only saw a few people along the way. A+

One of our favorite hikes out of 12 on this trip. Went clockwise so tough early but an amazing trail along the base of the glacier and spectacular views up and down the valley.

Amazing views up top!

Was beautiful but lack of indications

Iceline is a premier hike in the Canadian Rockies. If hiked clockwise, you quickly gain elevation to fantastic views of Takakkaw Falls, Yoho Valley and surrounding glaciers. This is a busy area and popular hike. Arrive early and give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the varied terrain and the fantastic scenery.
The trail in in good condition and well marked but always bring a map.

Beautiful loop trail!

Nice half day hike! If you have some more time it definitely worth it to follow the Iceline Trail until you reach the first glaciers. Highline trail is very nice through wildflowers (22.07.2018) and well maintained! We had an early lunch at Yoho Lake on our way back - which was nice because afterwards it goes just downhill - don’t forget Bug Spray!!!! The trail in the forest could be slippery if it’s wet, watch for your steps!

Trail was easy to find, and lots of parking available. The trail was quite busy, and for a large majority the trail is flat, going around the lake. A few sections near the lake are muddy/ washed out. The stairs before the falls are quite steep, but have a few sections you can get off and break at. Following the river up to the falls was a highlight, definitely take the time to check it out. I wore running shoes, but boots would have been preferred in the rocky sections.

Go before 8am or after 6pm to avoid the crowds. We visited at 8:30pm (July). Had the falls to ourselves for a few minutes and it was incredible.

Well marked trail. Some spots have water running through the trail so bring proper shoes. Up hill work out to start but well worth the climb getting to the lake and plenty of wild flowers (July) to keep the spirits high. At the fork, go to the lake first (clockwise), great views of Wapta mountain. We shared lunch here with a family of ducks. The rewards aren’t over yet, make sure to treat yourself to the last part of the loop with a quick uphill push to start then levelling out to some spectacular views of the valley and the Icleine everywhere you look including some amazing views of the Takakkaw Falls with the Daly glacier looming above it. Great half day hike with many visual rewards. We will be going back for more!

Nice hike. Stay near the water as others have advised. Trail washed out a bit around 1.5 miles in but manageable. Look for rock piles (trail guides) and stay close to the water before the stairs. Stopped by the natural bridge over the river (leads to bow hut trail). There’s a ladder so you can climb on top.

Great day today, the weather was perfect. It’s a little more windy and cold near the falls but that is to be expected with glacier water. Some parts were scarier for me because I’m afraid of heights but even as a beginner hiker it wasn’t too bad. I had my poles and good hiking boots. The elevation is not much and it’s mostly an easy hike, just one steeper section. The falls are awesome and the lake is so blue! By far one of my favorite hikes.

Great views of the water- stick to the river! Made the mistake of going through the forest unnecessarily.

7/14/2018: wasn’t sure how I was going to like this trail at first but it was worth it. Has a little of everything... forest, rocky “open” terrain (looks almost desolate), ice glaciers, blue lakes and basins, and even a waterfall. I would recommend doing this hike clockwise to get the sharp incline out of the way. The back half will be more of a gradual decent and easier on the knees and the last few miles will be more on flat terrain (I like having easier miles at the end of hike in case of any injuries or pains that could occur at the higher elevations). Bring sunscreen as a good portion of hiking is out in the open. And bug spray. There were also a few trail runners on this route as well as solo hikers.

Did on July 5 2018. Only some minor snowfields up top to cross - nothing more than few hundred feet at one time. Quite passable and as the overall 5 star rating suggests should be your number one choice if your coming to Yoho!

Beautiful Hike and great views. If you can, stay on the path near the river bed until you get to the steeper section with stairs that will take you to the viewpoint and then on to the falls. You can opt to take the right path through the forest as we did, but in retrospect the other way in much easier and scenic (we did that on the way back). Through the forest you will need to climb fairly steep and dense sections of overgrown forest. We were lucky some previous hikers left some markers to guide us out of it. You will end up in an open section of low vegetation near a creek bed infested with mosquitoes (luckily we had mosquito repellent on us) so push on toward the river side, left when looking toward the falls and glacier. Once you reach the riverbed side it is pretty straight forward. In a nutshell, unless there is too much water, go the riverbed side. Views from the falls are great looking towards bow lake and the Num Ti Jah lodge.

Impressive flow and spray of water from a cliff. Easy hike. We visited on a cloudy, rainy day; it is probably more stunning in the afternoon sunlight. Watch for tour buses and RVs on the switchbacks--we saw one backing up the road because they can't make the tight turns.

Nice half day hike with awesome views of waterfall and mountains. Lots of uphill, it's a decent workout.

Easy, walk for the whole family. Busy Canada Day in the rain.

Very Scenic and pretty easy hike except for a steep section with steps towards the end. If you go when water flow is less...just make sure to walk along the lake shore and waterfall stream. If you go into the forest .. as the trail goes... make sure u take the right turns. When you see open grass after coming out of forest... dont go right towards small waterfall (though u will hear it...we ended up going right and climbing all the way to the top which gives excellent views of Bow lake but its not the actual bow falls or trail). Go left towards the stream which feeds Bow Lake and walk along it.

Easy and beautiful!

One of my most favorite hikes that I've ever been on. ✨

This was one of our favorite hikes as it kept you along water the whole hike (and we like water) There must have been an avalanche this past winter as part of the trail is essentially gone and you will get your feet wet! I feel it is recent as the downed trees are obviously “fresh”. We knew it “must be the trail” as it was along the lake, however, we did question being in the right spot.

Nice short hike with some history.

Such a great hike for a huge reward. If you want an even cooler view, take the rock bridge on the left (You’ll know when you see it) and hit the trail that takes you above the falls.

Amazing view at the end !especially if you are the first ones out!
