Love this easy hike for the kiddos beautiful scenery and close to the hotel for food and picnic spots, great hike in winter, fall or summer

This was a pretty easy hike! In the winter, you can walk right up to the water fall and walk under it which is pretty sweet. It’s not a huge water fall but still pretty! If you’re planning on going before summer, wear water proof shoes of some sort as the ground is quite damp.

Nice little trail. Good for beginner hikers. Did this in apr/18 snow was pretty slushy and packed spikes and poles are your best friend. Just be mindful at the loop I found some rather fresh and big grizzly tracks. Mom and cub it looked like.

Enjoyable and Beautiful hike!!

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, and then this trail through highline trail. 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.

I like the forest going up, and also the trail itself is nice and relax. The first lake is really nice, but the second is a bit disappointing. Considering the distance of the hike, and how many great other options around, I think another one would be best.

Very nice hike. Johnson canyon is a bit crowded and annoying, but still worth doing. If you hike a lot, consider that just a "end of the day" bonus. The ink spot is relaxing with mountain surrounding. Great for pictures.

a little difficult with snow on the ground, but still fun fir the kiddos and beautiful. also, unless we missed it, we couldn't find the loop and had to turn around on the 3rd or 4th bridge. also, to note, there is no telus mobile service. we will definitely go back and try again.

Nice trail! Did with a doggo who also enjoyed it. No signs for Boom lake if you’re coming from Radium way, look out for the turning! Did with cleats on but would probably be fine without. Nice opening at the end where the snowy frozen lake is, would be pretty sweet in the summertime!

Always a great short little hike! Bring spikes if you want to explore up near the falls.

Great hike, beautiful views. No snow shoes needed, used poles !

I did this one late in my hiking career, and expected a pretty boring, easy, and crowded hike.
Mostly correct. There are however still a few views that are alright and the ponds are actually pretty cool.
The green and reflection I guess, but still so many people layin all around them.
Once is enough

Take the guided hike on Athabasca Glacier. It is awesome. Dress warm and tread lightly. Glad they gave us crampons. My profile pic is of my wife and me on this glacier.

Just do it!!

Very crowded. Good mountain views and nice lake.

Nice hike with 2 waterfalls and hiking along a river to the ink pots. Very crowded however. Get there really early to get a parking spot. At the ink pots, eat a lunch along the river. Mountains in background are very scenic.

Okay little hike but more vertical than we were hoping for on an “easy” walk. The loop isn’t fully open so it’s just an in and out right now. Crampons or poles definitely needed with the hard packed and slippery snow. Super close to Canmore which was convenient. All dogs were leashes too which was nice.

This is a gorgeous fun trail. Make sure you go early to avoid crowds. We did this in September and not many people went to the Ink Pots, so much less crowded, but coming back was very crowded around the falls. The ink pots are very neat. Love this trail.

Did this trail today, when it's still snow from the parking lot all the way to the ink pots. It was just above freezing. Really lovely. Sheltered from the wind, and the sun was warm enough that I was able to get down to just basic insulators. Spikes are a must, though, and poles recommended!
