The road in has recently been filled in so the potholes are easier to navigate. The hike is accuratley rated as hard, but it's well worth it when you get to the top! Definitely achievable without snow shoes now, only a few ankle deep patches left.

Amazing beauty and lots of wildlife. Whales, sea lions, bears, sea otters and tons of marine life. It’s great to fall asleep to the sound of waves hitting the beach. My favorite backpacking trail.

I did this hike with a group of 6 ladies in September 2017 and we really enjoyed it. If you have never done it the white Buddha trail was not clearly marked off the powder face trail, we actually walked right past it and figured it out 10 minutes up the path.
The White Buddha had beautiful views all round for how short the incline was.

My family of 6 did this last summer with kids ages ranging from 7-14. They had a blast in the slot canyon creek walk and in the little areas of water where they could slide in and cool off.
But (the reason for 3 stars) then we walked a long way on a dry hot creek bed and unless you loop to another hike it just ends with no real view. I would recommend just having fun up to where the creek ends and enjoy that, nothing exciting past.

About half of the section down to the Bow River has turned into a creek, making it tough to navigate around in some parts. There’s a river crossing as well but it’s not really feasable till maybe much later in the year when water levels are low. I followed the Bow River downstream to get close to the lake (as seen on the map as another trail) but this “trail” kind of faded in and out throughout the hike. Ran into a lot of spider webs across the trail, ticks, and water. Probably won’t do this hike again.

we were going to do the suspension bridge but decided not to after seeing the price. we joined the trail on the way back. nice lookout points and you can get down to the river in some areas.

Easy trail, flat all way long. Although the lake is indeed pretty, there was no awesome viewpoint.

It took us 2 hours to complete the round trip from the parking lot to the 3rd lake (we sometimes run). Although the route from the first lake to the second may be steep, the view of the second lake is totally worth it.

We went up today June 22. We had to turn back at a snow covered section near the tea house. It was steep and very slippery in the rain even with good hiking boots! Some people did go onto the tea house but they had hiking poles and proper footwear (and even they were having a hard time coming back). Not worth the risk in my opinion!

I have done this hike in the summer with no snow. It’s very manageable, the tea house is lovely and it has beautiful views! If you can..wait till the snow is gone before you go!

Awesome trailrun with beautiful views. Technically easy.

great trail, did it during spring break, still tons of snow.. would definitely not suggest going in the winter. hard to climb

I completed this trail on a weekday and I am glad I did as portions of this walk were quite busy with bikes, runners and walkers. The trail is a good length with some slight challenge for beginners-those wanting to challenge themselves with a distance hike as opposed to elevation.

Good hike and very pretty. Not as hard as stated. As someone else mentioned the further you walk the less people you will see - we walked further than most :)

Magnifique! Le sentier Pioui donne une vue à couper le souffle! Le 2e kilomètre de la montée est un peu plus exigeant, mais ensuite le paysage en vaut la peine et la suite est moins à pic et moins rocheuse.
Bonne randonnée!

The only way to do this loop is clockwise as there’s a pretty steep climb between the falls. Do it the other way and you can only slide/fall down to keep with the trail. The trail is very well marked in my opinion. Would recommend wearing long pants. It can be a bit bushy in some places

Great views of town of Banff and pleasant hike. Not really out in wildy but picturesque views of town.

Great trail for kids to get into mountain biking. It is also well shaded so even when it is 40+, you don't feel that hot while biking here! Highly recommended!

This trail was a total surprise! At first t seemed pretty pedestrian - considering that there was an “easy” side of the loop that we didn’t take. But wow when you get to the waterfall it’s just amazing! Definitely recommend!

We did the hike on June 22 this is our third hike of the year and we did it in four hours and 20 minutes. After the one kilometre walk to the Y section we went left up the steep section 1st and came back down the mountain in the valley side. It was overcast and rained a little bit on our hike but all-around a great hike there is still a little bit of snow at the top, but nothing more then a foot.

Was nice, not crowded at all. There is a fee and honour system.

Good Hike. the end is the highlight otherwise just trees. dog friendly not as hard as the stats might suggest.

This could be a 5 star hike if not for the trail. It's not been maintained and now forms a creek so you are walking over a lot of boulders making the ankles kinda sore. recommend over-nighting. its a long ways to go in one day and you'll miss the sites.

Everything its built up to be. One of the best hikes in BC. Bring a camera and wind and rain gear it can sock in fast and get wet and cold even in August. very busy go in the fall.

Not a great trail to walk through, very muddy and too overgrown.

Bcp trop achalandé mais quelques points de vue intéressant. Rendu en haut, passez l’observatoire d’environ 75 pieds et coupez dans la forêt pour arriver directement au bord du précipice et pour manger en solitaire loin du chaos. Vue incroyable.

Facile et pas demandant, si vous feelez relax et avez besoin de mettre la switch à off...

Un de mes coups de coeur de l’été 2017, demandant si vous faites la boucle du Pioui avec la montée jusqu’en haut du mont (env 12km) mais définitivement un des highlights du Parc. La plupart des gens ne font que la montée sur la montagne directement, vous devez vous taper la boucle Pioui au complet en partant très tôt le matin. Points de vie exceptionnels, qualité du sentier top notch, bon effort physique sans devoir prendre 3 jours à s’en remettre. Superbe!

Trop achalandé, les 2 points de vue principaux sont beaux mais ne donnent pas satisfaction avec tout ces gens. J’ai préféré de loin la Tourbière pour la beauté des paysages au matin malgré le minime effort demandé. Bcp plus relax et ressourçant.
