Multiple trees down blocking the trail and lots of wet & mucky spots. Not very busy and didn’t see any animals.

Sunny. July, 2007. Sunny. August, 2015. Sunny. July, 2018.

Anyone know if this trail is accessible right now?

Tried to do this trail today, but the access road to Lake Moraine is closed 12km from the lake. We heard you can bike in to the trailhead, so that could be an option for others! Hope to come back to see this beautiful landscape another time.

What this trail lacked in dryness it made up for in deer fly sightings. That’s right, deer flies. Not deers, deer FLIES. We were swamped with mud and aggressive flies for majority of this walk with not too many views as pay off. I would suggest looking at a different trail if you are wishing to experience Elk Island

I’ve been on quite a few trails the past few years but this trail has been one of most difficult yet rewarding trail. It was quite windy and muddy when we went recently. I highly suggest starting early as you may wander off the trail due to the lack of signage we saw. Bring A LOT of water as well

Did all three lakes June 19, 2019. Took us 4 hours with our toddler. It was raining on our way back but we had raincoats. Trail wasn't muddy even with the rain. A good trail for the family. Not much bugs during our hike. Best views are on the upper lake. Will do this hike again and arrive earlier to spend more time at the last lake.

I did this trail a few years ago (September 2018) and it did not disappoint!! We started out in warm weather, hiked through some beautiful landscape including small streams, stunning yellow larch trees and mountain views. Once you get to the clearing there’s some bodies of water surrounded by mountains. Disclaimer: it was a snow storm at the clearing. We layered up and completed the switch backs to the tippytop, the path on the switchbacks is narrow and lots of times we had to lay against the mountain to allowed hikers to go by(all part of the fun :)) .. the views at the top are incredible and this hike is definitely one of my favourites. You will not regret this hike!!!

One of my favourite hikes in the Rockies! If you go on the weekend you may not be able to park due to tourists visiting the lake. Go early or during the week.

This trail was drastically improved for the 2019 season. It’s a steady climb to the top but about an hour of work provides fantastic views of GMNP. Make sure to complete the old loop at the top of the hill which provides some additional vantage points of the Tablelands.

I went on the 31st of May. parking lot is closed. we parked on the side of the road and jumped over the small barrier (pretty doable). we went all the way to the last lake but there's snow leading to the last lake campsite but the rest is all very doable. some ice and snow but nothing that will be challenging

I have hiked this multiple times and the scenery only improves! A challenging but great climb with tremendous views. You need footwear with ankle support and lots of water.

great trail, lots of variety. there's lots of climbs, marshes, pine forest, mixed forest. it can be a challenge for kids, but mine held up surprisingly well.

Did an overnight trip from the South trailhead to Caribou West. The trail was wet and muddy in spots but otherwise the conditions were perfect. I just love the varied terrain and views, saw many beautiful wildflowers along the way including lady slippers, as well as many birds, turtles and a beaver when we arrived at camp. Did the full trail from North to South in Sept. 2017 and hope to do it again soon!

Went on a muddy day end of May and it made some of the terrain challenging. Definitely underestimated the length, due to the amount of rocks and roots along the path it took much longer than I had anticipated. Amazing challenge though with fantastic scenic points littered all across the trail.

Gorgeous trail, very easy and small up hill but super super easy. You can choose to start either at the upper or lower falls. Beautiful views of falls and lower falls you can walk into the water where the river is, super shallow and perfect to swim.

Decided to try out hunt lake trail after a friend recommended it to me. The trail beginning shows us a nice trail map and more information about the trail. It says to “allow 6 hours” total mostly due to the dramatic elevation changes and the fact that there’s a nice shelter/rocky shore where you can sit and enjoy the view. Overall a great trail with minimal ticks and bugs and beautiful scenery everywhere. Would not recommend young children to go and complete the whole 12km as it does get draining, but we did see many kids enjoying themselves at the caves and rock crevices so there is always the option of turning around. Very well marked (even though we did end up accidentally off the trail a few times) and if you do not see any markings on trees or rocks for a few minutes, most likely you have wandered off the trail. Bring lots of water and sunscreen! Recommend at least 2L of water for the trail.
