(seaweed gin!) - both of which you should check out either before or after the lovely hike and/or picnic you just had.

Short very very easy walk

Very nice trail, great view, but lots of lazy idiots littering on the trail. You will find lots of dog poop bags, bottles, and other plastic along the trail; especially near the road areas. The park doesn't put any recycling bins or garbage bins along the trail. It's a real shame....

Did this hike last Saturday 30th June, was actually quite dangerous and very difficult to see/manuever at the top with the snow, we had poles and boots which were a must. Couldn't find the hut or anywhere to camp so we had to turn back probably just before reaching it. I'd recommend waiting until the snow melts and doing this hike in late July through September.

Kids friendly easy trail great for the whole family!

Great hike up to both lakes, lots of rocks to climb over, so make sure you have shoes with great grip.

WARNING: for overnight hikers, we saw 6-7 cars with their driver windows smashed. Do not leave any valuables inside. My guess is this happened overnight when there weren't people around. Not sure what action we could take on this!

My friend and I hiked this trail with our kids (ages 4, 5, 8 & 9) in August of 2017 and they handled it beautifully. It is a bit steep in places but we took our time. The views from the top are spectacular...you can see where prairie meets the mountains. A great half day hike!

We did both loops with our kids, stopping along the way to read the signs and learn more about the rainforest. Such a beautiful environment. The boardwalks are fantastic...many steps but very doable for active families.

A great day out with our family. Scrambling over the rocks around the lighthouse was a highlight for our 10 year old. The enormous gnarled trees enthralled our 5 year old. This is a very cool trail!

very nice hike, before arriving to the waterfall to go to lake agnes you have the option to turn left to directly go to little behive it is really worth it to take that path and lots less busy to I was all by my self!

We decided to do this hike because it's short and pretty, having all the wildfire smoke and an asthmatic family member, this was enough to have our nature fix!
its a really easy hike, my 3 year old had cero problem to do it from beginning to end. park at the day use area and cross the highway on foot.

Great trail! Took our two kids with us (4yr and 8 months). Its easy to moderate hike. Slow and gradual.
Bonus- we went during long weekend and saw only handfull of other hikers , it was like a private hike and with kiddos its more than we can ask for.

This trip was hampered by the smoke from the BC wildfires, so being totally fair the reward at the top is probably usually a lot better! I would do this hike again as a prep for bigger summit hikes. It was definitely tough. I think the only reason this trail gets rated as “moderate” is because of the length, but it’s a hard work out. The first kilometre or so is very steep. It does ease off a bit through the middle portion and then finishes off with a series of switchbacks. We ran into quite a few people on this trail and I don’t think most of them were expecting such a tough hike, but it looked like everyone stuck it out to the top!

We did this hike with our two dogs. It was definitely doable, but a couple of notes.... The middle section is mostly loose rock, which was a bit tougher for the dogs (mostly on the way down). The upper section is dirt but a very narrow trail which I found a little challenging with two on leash dogs, even with 10 ft leashes. With a single dog I think it would be totally fine, but two dogs attached to one person requires a bit of experimentation. There was also one section in the switchbacks where I opted to let the dogs off leash on the descent. It’s a very short section (literally a couple metres), but it didn’t seem safe to navigate it with two dogs attached to me. Otherwise though the dogs really enjoyed this one and so did we!

This was a fun hike! Unfortunately all of our hikes this trip were hampered by thick smoke from the BC wildfires, but luckily I think this is one that isn’t affected quite so much by poor visibility since the main attraction is the cirque which you arrive right underneath. A few minutes after you arrive the adorable little pikas should start popping out from the rock pile to yell at you! The first portion of the hike is quite steep. Once you pass the graffiti house it does let up a bit and become more of a moderate incline for the rest of the trip. The little side “trail” to the look out over Lake Minnewanka is great (would probably be way better on a smokeless day!). We did this hike with our two dogs... footing and trail width was great.

Nice little hike. We ended up having to change all of our hiking plans due to the really severe smoke from the BC wildfires. We chose this hike because it was along the river which was one of the only natural features we could see and enjoy in this particular day with how thick the smoke was, and also because it had no significant elevation (again because of the smoke). The Hoodoos are pretty sad if you’ve been to the badlands before, but it was interesting to see in a sort of unexpected location. Overall this hike was very pleasant and easy if you’re looking for something in town or don’t feel like slogging up a mountain.

Great hike through cedar forests. Very easy hike until you get to the area with a rope, then it becomes more challenging with difficult terrain and crossing a few rocky stream beds. Watch your step. The falls are worth it, can take a dip so bring your swimsuits!

a short and easy walk to a beautiful waterfall and its cascading pool. it's very easy to find located right off 99 on the way to Pemberton from Whistler. stop by if you have an hour to kill between hikes.

there was lots of groups going up and down children and seniors. think twice if you have bad knees as the decent is steep. stay on trail during the switch backs as our son was doing the cut across but the trail drifts left. Thank the Lord he found the path. Was a piece of hidden beauty at the top. So glad we stay in shape. Parking is great for cars and 1 to 2 truck with campers. Camp ground and a hostel south by 8km.

Couldn't see with all the smoke, still a wonderful bike. Loved how windy it was:)

Went during the week, not overly busy. Spectacular views. Very easy ride.

Easy, comfortable path with a number of splendid views, not least of the three lakes (Louise, Mirror, Agnes)..

Great walk for the family! Ran into an owl and a deer!

Hiked this trail today and wasn’t too smoky. Great scenic views once you are on the ridge. It took nine of us to complete the 10 km hike in just under 5 hours. A little bit of scaling and worth it! Stay hydrated!

Great trail conditions. We will give that another hike in the future. Bench on the lake was a nice touch❗

It was nice easy to moderate hike.

Only made it to the first summit (North peak) due to weather, but this on its own was spectacular! The views from the top are some of the best you’ll get in the front ranges, and the scramble up in the tight chimney just before the top is one of the coolest bits of scrambling in the Banff area. Took about 6 1/2 hours round trip.

Adorable comme toujours. Vue imprenable de la ville et ses alentours. bon Cardio nécessaire pour la montée, surtout si vous passez par la rue vers Campbell. Bâtons très utiles pour la descente.
À refaire... encore.

If you end up staying over at the harbour, be sure you DO have a propane burner or such as the wood in the area is usually very damp and many larger pieces of wood are gone later in the summer months. Overall a beautiful hike with some moderately challenging elevations (closer to the lake side)

Highly recommended

obviously a busy trail in the summer time. It is a great family walk, especially when there is a chance of rain, or overcast. we went when the smoke from forest fires in B.C. were particularly heavy. Beautiful walk with varied gain/ drop. Well recommended for all levels of age and experience. A great morning, afternoon, or evening hike.
