Had an amazing hike today on this busy trail. We did bring our snowshoes, but the trail was packed down enough that the snowshoes we not required. The “harder” trail was closed. Beautiful scenery and the lake at the end was crystal clear. Many opportunities to sit and rest. Easy trail. Kid and dog friendly.

Idyllic snowshoeing trail. Lots of people on the paths, both snowshoers and XC skiers. Some people managed in just shoes and cleats but there’s a few deep spots you can fall. Dog friendly too. The road going out is usually not great so take it slow.

As of Jan 1, 2020 the entire trail was hard packed. No need for snow shoes at all. Traction devices recommended. 55 mins up with a few short breaks, 45 mins down. Great trail

Nice loop around in 2 hours. We didn't need any crampons as there was barely any ice. A couple of nice view point on the way up.

Interesting hike with fun features. Our friend ran ahead so he could be the first of all the people on the full boat to get there. Though he did, he also got lost for 20 minutes and almost fell at the cave ledge due to anxiety. As hilarious of a story it is, maybe don't do that.

hard packed to rawson lake minor slippery spots ,cleats recommended comming down, past the lake to sarrail ridge had to use snowshoes. comming down i found split board tracks which definitely helped! bringing the split next time!!!!

Compacted snow on snowshoe trail—enough to hike comfortably.

Made our way up to Rawson on Friday, Dec 20...a wee workout thru the snow but so worth the trek! Snowed heavily all the way up and only passed 2 other hikers who did not go as far as Rawson. Usually this trail is snow packed so we did not take our snowshoes and ended up trail blazing the last portion of the trail thru knee deep snow. Luckily we could kinda of make out where the trail was but recommend downloading the trail path in case you head out as there has been more snow since. I do this hike every winter and have never seen that much snow up there! Roads in and out are kept plowed and sanded extremely well.

Only the “easy trail” is open, the harder trail through the trees is closed for the season. We hiked up yesterday during the heavy snowstorm and there was a narrow packed trail which made it a lot easier. Would recommend snow shoes or some kind of spikes and poles if you have them. Probably over the next week or so if it doesn’t snow anymore then extra gear wouldn’t be necessary. It’s a heavily trafficked trail so gets packed down quite quickly. The lakes are beautiful and it was a fun hike up and back. Several people were stuck trying to get and out of the parking lot due to heavy snow

Dec 23/2019 - Snowshoeing, trail was in great condition. There was a fresh dump of snow from the day before, if anything it was the unplowed roads that were the trickier part of this day! For snowshoeing, this trail is only 3.5km one way, and is an out and back. Follow Leighton Atema’s recording for an example: https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recording/chester-lake-trail--1309 I suppose it could be done following the hiking trail, but we followed the snowshoe trail signs and map provided by Alberta Parks. Roughly a 3 hour round trip, but that’s including a few stops and lunch, so it could definitely be done quicker. The views were decent, the first 80% or so is uphill and in the trees, expect some better views once it flattens out and you reach the lake, as you’ll feel like you’re surrounded by mountain peaks. Fun one for sure!

This was a super fun trip if you are looking for something quick to do! it was beautiful the whole time and we took a lot of breaks and still made great time

December 9th. Went up to the lake with micro spikes, no problem. Lots of snowshoe traffic has matted the trail. Absolutely beautiful. Only 2 other people on the trail and an overly friendly and overly fed bird at the top. Rawson always delivers.

Bright blue skies. Sun. Fresh snow. Perfect day in the mountains. We had a blast snowshoeing here a week ago. Pretty popular spot, so we didn't have to break any trail. Went up to see the elephant rocks and then had lunch, lakeside in the sunshine. Great spot!

Good snowshoe trail. Would recommend poles for the way down, there are some parts you could get away with with hiking boots only but would still recommend poles. There is one steep section that would be difficult without spikes or snowshoes. Lovely mountain views at the top, it’s like you’re in a bowl surrounded by mountains. Lots of snow up by the lake. We caught some skiers going down the hill at the top too which was fun to watch.
