Great hike. Lots of wildlife and well marked and easy trail. A little hard on the knees bring a hiking pole. Winter camped along it, amazing

Spectacular! The effort is strongly rewarded!

The view is amazing all around

Better than I expected. The hike actually can be a loop. There are several bridges that traverse the river so it’s not really an in and out walk. Very easy. Definitely accessible walk for all ages and abilities.

This is one of my favourite places in Banff NP. Yes, the canyon can get really busy so make sure you come early.
We did the hike up to the ink pots in late October and started at 9 am and saw maybe 10 other pairs of people on the trail as we made our way up. When we came back down around 1:30 pm it was already much busier, especially in the canyon. Contrary to what many people say, the hike up to the ink pots is definitely worth the extra effort! Although the trail is not super interesting after the canyon, the view at the ink pots is amazing. Make sure you come on a clear day so you can see the surrounding mountains. When we did the hike there was some snow and ice on the trail so microspikes definitely come in handy, even during fall.

Very wooded trail. Very beautiful lake views at campsites. I recommend the campsite at Eau Lake. Very quiet and private single site with water access. Although many report wildlife, I did not experience any encounters of such.

I spend alot of time here and in all seasons. It is the perfect place to feel like you're in the forest while still being, pretty much, in the middle of the city.
