Eaten alive on these trails- mosquitoes are very aggressive. They go your ears and eyes! These trails are mostly overgrown, parts you get attacked by plants as they’re taller than you and very narrow trails. If there was more maintenance and less bugs this place would have potential.

I’d rate this a 3.5. More of a quad trail than hiking trail. Great if you need an accessible route but not challenging.

decently traveled, moderate incline, very nice views!

Would agree that this is an easy trail. Incline is moderate all the way through with switchbacks which make it very manageable. Trail was well maintained up until just past the Tea House. Packed snow and barely icy, but spikes are a must. The last bit to the lookout had fresh snowdrift, which got about knee high. Heavy exposure at the lookout so we didn’t stay long, but the view of the glaciers was amazing.

October 14th. Beautiful trail with a great view at the top! Not difficult and I guess family friendly. Be careful with snakes

Outstanding! Packed snow, really steep at times. So thankful the tea house opened up for the holiday.

beautiful hike. I would rate this as easy (not moderate) as it was a very gradual incline on a well paved path for the most part. the teahouse was closed when we got there, so it would be nice to know ahead but we were planning to do the hike regardless. I would do it again for sure!!! easy and stunning views all around. micro spikes are a must.

Completed on 12 Sep. barring one or two steep sections to the area house and one steep section at the end, I think this is a easy trail. There were many icy sections near the tea house. Started early and just came across one group of people but on the return to lake Louise saw lots of people heading towards the plains. My first in snow. Will try to do it again in summer to see how it looks and feels. The tea house definitely gets crowded. Cleats and crampons are very helpful these days and saw most folks having crampons around the icy section.

Great beginner trail. Clearly marked out. Lots of people and dogs. Nice holiday Monday hike.

Great hike! Hiked it this morning (October 13) and it was the last day the tea house is open for the year. Snow on the ground but very manageable with ice grips

Great hike! Trail conditions were reasonable and definitely doable but there is considerable snow and ice. We found it helpful to wear microspikes. Such beautiful scenery and we decided to take the trail to lake Agnes on the way back which was a great decision and offered good views of lake Louise

If you’re looking for a running or biking path then this trail is great. If you’re looking for a super easy casual walk then I would do a section of this walk again. The last quarter was beautiful, forest trail crossing train tracks and creeks. The first 1/2 is just flat walking with a view of flat farmland, in the early morning or sunset it might be breathtaking...but very underwhelming the rest of the time haha. I would recommend starting at the mission bridge picnic area and facing the water take the path left. I did the full 26 km walk today and unless I’m biking or running this trail, I won’t be doing the whole trail in its entirety again.

Great day hike! I hike in Seal Bay at least once a week. This is a great family hike. Wide paths, ( can walk side by side on 70% of trail). Great for trail bike riding also. Nice easy rises. No obstacles or jumps. The Park people are always maintaining and upgrading these trails. They gotten 100% better in the past decade. This trail is 90% off leash also . You will meet a lot of dogs on this trail. This trail is great for all fitness levels. There are also abundant side trails to explore also. I highly recommend this trail if you just want to get out get some fresh air and exercise. In the wet season I pretty much stay on these trails.

Not a challenging hike but quite scenic during fall time with some informative signs about the land formations and cliffs.

We did this trail yesterday, 9th October. It had snowed a fair bit the day before so we had our trekkers on which really makes these sorts of conditions so much more enjoyable, dress appropriately and this trail is definitely manageable. This trail is just spectacular, you start off with a couple of kms walking around the lake, then head into some beautiful forest. There is some sections that go around a bit of a cliff that was covered in huge icicles, meanwhile every-time you look back the view of the lake gets better! After a hot chocolate at the tea house we headed to the lookout that’s another 1.4kms past it. The snow was deep and fresh here so guessing no one else had been out that far, we went about 1km but decided it was beyond our capabilities, plus the view from that point was so amazing we really didn’t mind. All in all this is one of the most beautiful trails I have been on and was a lot of fun!

I hiked this trail on Oct 10th, a couple days after the snowfall, and it was very icey. I had small crampon spikes on and was able to go almost the whole way with no issues, however, about 1 km or so before the tea house it was extremely icey on a portion of the trail that is quite narrow and along a cliff. I decided against risking my life and turned around. But the views the whole and up to this point were spectacular. I’m so glad I did the hike even if I did turn around before reaching the tea house.

Hey all. I agree with Becky. Get there EARLY! My bf and I started our hike at 930am and tour buses were already dropping hikers off. We had to hike hard for the first bit to pass everyone. The trail is covered in snow but no ice. We used spikes and they were extremely helpful but we saw people in running shoes and they were doing OK. It is very steep. Again. It is very steep but definitely doable, such a good workout. And all downhill when you're done!

Started this hike around 9am with my tour group. If you start early enough, you'll be in the shade for the first part of the hike. I was able to get by for most of the hike with regular hiking boots, but before you reach the Tea House there's a narrow cliff that's fairly ice. We suited up with ice cleats for the remainder of the trek. The tea house is absolutely charming! Bring cash if you want to purchase something. Due to the conditions, we didn't go any further than the Tea House.

This is a great hike! It’s elevation change in the beginning is INTENSE. It’s way longer than you would think. I would advise getting there early. It gets busy quick. Once you are at the top you have to go up to beehive. Unreal views.

The trail starts at Lake Louise which is beautiful. You hike up a pretty steep trail, but you can stop along the way for other amazing views of Louise! The tea house at the end is so cute. The hot drinks and soup were a great way to warm up before heading back down. Did wear crampons for extra grip (lots of snow and ice) but did see others in simple tennis shoes.

Great track just minutes from Quebec, perfect when you have only 1/2 day to go hiking. Yes there is mud, but we must expect in the fall. Both views are spectacular at this time of the year. He will follow the blue indicators placed along the way. Can not wait to snowshoe all over again this winter. Happy hike!
