Just did this trail yesterday. Crampons are a must. Beautiful views made the difficulty of uphill in ice and snow worth it! Tea house is closed and covered up in snow. But we had a snack break of our own on the porch and enjoyed the views! Breathtaking is a literal word I would use in describing this trail.

Great and easy little hike with stunning views. Recommend microspikes during this time of year.

It's a great hike, don't get me wrong. But considering the amazing ones around, I give that only 4 stars. The best is to find a way to add it to something else. We did The little and big beehive, Lake agnes, highline trail and came back via plain of six glaciers. Big day, filled with amazing views

Don't waste your time, there are much nicer hikes around there. It's a very easy stroll but there just isn't much to see.

Obviously if you are there, you should do that. It's very crowded but the lake is very nice.

Nice little hike with nice view over Lake Minnewanka. I'd suggest doing the cascade mountain scramble instead, but this is much shorter so if time is a factor, go for it!

Short and easy hike with good views of the lake at the end.

Great hike for today, but it was really icy, so take cleats with you!

Sweet walk! Pretty cool canyon, definitely worth checking out if you’re driving by

Hubby and I took our Australian Shepherd to the upper falls on Monday (April 2) the trail is very well done, perfect those wanting a nice leisurely walk. Not really a hike, and unfortunately far too many people on the trail, way too crowded!!

It was not so easy with two kids 4 and 1 years old so it took us linger than usual. Nothing interesting in the way up but trees. However, once you reach the mirror lake, it is so beautiful. Finally, you can see a waterfall coming down from lake Agnes. Then, you know it was worth doing it. You can get a hot drink at the tea house. It is also a busy trail with lots of people

One of my favourite hikes. Have been 8 times now. To avoid even the spring crowds go early or around 5 pm. Ruins it when you have hundreds of people on the trail with you.
If hiking in the spring you will have difficulties if you go in runners or flip flops or any of the other summer shoes I have encountered people struggling with on the trail. Buy or rent crampons/cleats and enjoy the steady climb up the canyon :)

loved this trail easy for kids and great scenery and pics

Fun winter hike! Absolutely beautiful.

Very crowded. Good mountain views and nice lake.

First trail we took on our trip to Banff. What a way to start! So much for easing into things. The reward at the end was more than worth it. Tea was wonderful. The return trip seemed to be more difficult, but was worth every step.

nice and short hike for our first in Banff, great views along the way and nothing difficult to encounter on the way. cleats made a huge difference because the packed snow trail was a bit slippery without them.

Beautiful and easy walk in -30 weather

Neat little hike, did it with snowshoes but the trail was packed enough that you could probably easily manage without.

Great little hike with fantastic views! Short & easy, and seems to be a popular trail as there were lots of people.

Did the trail to the Upper Falls on February 8th right after the snowfall. Beautiful hike. Used yaktrax’s to help steady myself on the trail. Probably didn’t need them. Highly recommend for beginners

So beautiful! Definitely take shoe spikes in the winter! Lifesavers!

Easy family trail/walk. It's crowded even in winter, I couldn't imagine during summer with strollers... Cleats recommended. Nice view and fun for kids.

My phone died, so the recording is inaccurate.

-15, still comfortable temperature as long as the appropriate clothing is used.

Some steeper parts, but has rails almost the whole way along, handy. Hiking sandles would be comfortable in the summer. Saw several kids around 5yo doing just fine. Path is narrow especially with heavy traffic, strollers not ideal.

Completed this in 1hr at a moderate pace, plenty of stops for photos.

VERY busy in the summer until past the upper Falls.

Great switchbacks and views!

great winter hike! so beautiful.

Beautiful views of Banff and a great little hike to get your heart pumping, very low time commitment required so you can plan multiple activities in a day and still get a good hike in!

Nice leisurely walk for all ages, beautiful scenery busy during the day with lineups on the foot bridge near the lower falls.

Beautiful vistas, quite a workout bring your walking poles
