Great hike with 360 views at the top. Trail was in excellent shape and well-signed with all trees/debris previously mentioned cleared.

One of my favorite

You’re better off the go out & back from Bay Bulls - it’ll be approximately 25.4km (12.7km to the Spout) in total but it’s far more scenic!

Very pretty views of the fjords. Forested cover was lovely. Clearly marked trail. Highly recommend.

I have completed this trail twice now in full with multiple one-day trips on segments. On each full trail adventure I did it once in each direction. My personal preference being the start via Signal. Have stayed/spent time at every campground with Signal, Curator and Little Shovel my favourites. Tekarra and Snowbowl are beautiful though the layout of the actual camp is less desirable (particularly if you need to seek the facilities in the middle of the night).

Prefer the Signal start as a relentless uphill when one is fresh is much more favourable to me than a relentless downhill that never... ever... EVER... ends ; )

Trail review: Week of Sept. 10, exactly a year from the last go-round. Weather was insane in ways we could not have anticipated with Mother Nature under promising and over-delivering, but once again - wow. Trail is incredible and we are blessed to experience. Pack smart. Pack for the weather (4 seasons). And ENJOY.

Also... download this app. Ran it off my phone’s GPS which kept us pointed in the right direction for two days during white - out conditions. AllTrails did not pay me to say this, promise.

It is a demanding trail for experienced hikers. Most of the way the path is easy to follow, yet it has some very steep, bushwacking sections. The actual climb is not too difficult, the hardest section is class 4, so no gear is needed if comfortable with that and if later in the season. It is also possible to climb the snowfield, but it would require crampons/ice-axe, unless the snow is soft. I did the hike in 3 days and it was a lot. However, the view from the summit is worth the effort!

Not a hike I’d do again. Fairly easy to get up, not a lot to see.

Short, easy walk around the lake. Lots of lovely views of the lodge and the mountains. Nothing extreme, no need for any special gear/equipment.

Just hiked it again today on a clear day and finally got the views. Just amazing up at the peak! Love this hike! Car to peak in 4 hours and 40 mins, peak to car in 4 hours. Will definitely do again next year

Short but steep with an amazing view at the end.

did this trip to see Larches, with a group of women. despite fresh snow, the larches did not disappoint. This is a great hike for most abilities. I'm planning on taking my daughter back this weekend. some moderately short steep section on the entrance from the lot with the snow in place poles ar highly recommended. There was one short log to cross where those who brought poles shared to allow others safer crossing.

Short hike with an iconic landmark at the end. There were folks stopped at the beach with their kayaks which made for nice photos.

I don't mind admitting this was over my comfort level and physical fitness level. Got to the helipad but the trail is rated hard for a reason so do be mindful of that and be more concious of you abilities than I was. Views are amazing and the trail is easy to find all the way up. I'm going to love that I made it all the way up in a few days when my physical pain goes away! And yes, I'm a bit newbie to mountain hiking and not in top top shape... this is true! So just a heads up for others like me who want to attempt this... maybe you might want to do a few more moderate rated hikes in the mountains before doing this one. I'm from flat place in Ontario and i can do trails rated hard all day long in my area. but the rating system is so much different here in the mountains!

The Lake Agnes hike is moderate, but the incline does get intense at moments. It is worth it though. You pass Mirror Lake along the way, which is a great place to pause, relax, drink some water, and take some photos before you carry on the way. Lake Agnes is a gorgeous lake that feels remote even though you have other hikes nearby.

At the bottom of the loop, the trail is closed for construction.

We went a little after lunch hour,the hike up to the lower and upper falls was a little busy but once you start heading towards the ink pots there was less traffic.The 5.7km hike was worth it after seeing the view.

Great hike & we loved venturing off on the Iroquois Heights Side Trail/Loop too.

Nice trail, great views. Late Sept. there was very silent and for majority of the time I was the only human around.

I was assuming that there’s only one loop as the AllTrails say, but there are several forks along - check out the map on the trail. Thanks to it you can decide whether to have a long or a short loop.

Recommendable. Easy to find starting point and relatively well marked.

Amazing views at the end!!

It was a fantastic day to get out and enjoy the hike to Lake Annette and then on to the Giant steps. There’s been a fair bit of snow so things were muddy and icy in areas but it definitely eliminated any tourist traffic. I only ran into 7 people on my way out. The majority of the trail along paradise creek is fairly low angle and in good condition. I took some video of the falls but can’t seem to get the uploaded. Loved the hike.

A wonderful day to hike today September 26, clear beautiful views, a light sprinkle when we started so we were a bit worried, but ended up being a beautiful day.
So close to Calgary and a nice cardio. About a dozen people on the trail.

Beautiful walk

It is an easy trail, minimal hills, but also minimal views. Though there is a cool shelter built in part of the woods off the path. This is a pretty busy equestrian trail so you have to watch for the droppings. Also it isn't well marked where Sawmill turns. If you go left instead of right at one of the intersections you end up on Chickadee way which takes you off the loop. The nice part is if halfway through if you're done you can just take McCormack straight down to the main trail office.

Great hike! Not hard until you start the scramble to summit (it's a lot further up than you think lol!).

Fairly well trafficked the day we went, easily saw 20-30 people throughout the day. The hot springs, while a nice feature, are not worth hiking in for alone... The water wasn't very warm and there is maybe enough room for 4-6 adults max (expect legs to touch under water with those numbers).
Summit scramble is amazing! Lactic acid build up is real after this one :) you will be rolling out those quads/glutes/shins the day after ;)

Saw no wildlife, kids, or pets on this one.

Super short hike, and quite gorgeous. Signage was clear and ropes were handy. It was a bit busy, and some folks had left garbage behind :(

Slippery decline and an invigorating ascent!

Hiked to the Nihahi summit (23/09/18)
Very well marked, follow the map, little bow trail until you see the Nihahi ridge sign. Follow the beaten path to the summit - expect it to take ~2hrs 30mins with limited stops for photos/breaks. The scramble and ridge walk are easily the best part of this hike, there was no snow on the trails/mountain when we did the hike but it did have a few slippery muddy sections (poles or cleats not necessary).
Super awesome views!
Started around noon and was driving to Bragg Creek for a post hike drink around 4:30pm (only did a couple peaks and round trip of 12km).

Saw no wildlife and passed 16-20 hikers and three dogs (2 of the hikers were <10 y/o kids!).

Nice area but far from "hard" as stated above. Nice paved trails with picnic tables spaced around.
Good area for a walk but wouldn't describe as a place for hiking.
Easy and then maybe a little closer to moderate, at the stairs.
