Amazing views all around. We aren’t in great shape so it took us a little longer than others. There were a lot of people on the trail; views getting there and back were just as beautiful as the Hidden Lake. Mostly wooden planks and then there are gravel trails. Some snow on the boardwalks but dries out around noon.

Wonderful hike with lots of wildlife. We seen a lot of Mt Goats and long horn sheep. The flowers were just starting to bloom.

Gradual hike. Could be tricky in rain or snow as there are some steep portions. Hiking poles recommended just to help you with your footing. We arrived at the Tea House and enjoyed some chi tea and a peanut butter bar (a sweet chewy piece of heaven).

Absolutely gorgeous view and really easy to get to.

Great hike! We ran out of energy so didn't do the full loop at the end, but we ventured part way out past the end of the "official" trail. Even without doing the last mile across the loose shale, it was a great hike and we felt very rewarded with amazing views and a unique landscape.

Did this with Rocky Mountain Adaptive last week, hauling up trail riders- great experience but sadly was pretty foggy at the opening section so didn't see it all in full glory.. will come back and do the extra loop next time to see cave etc.

Beautiful lake, friendly people, and most of the time I see wildlife, a nice walking trail.

Very nice hike and the view at the "summit" is just amazing !
When the sky is clear you can see mountains and mountains

We just did the hike around the lake as had a stroller and three year old in tow. Was beautiful and very quiet; we only saw a handful of people the whole way round even though there were a lot of tourists in the parking lot and on the bridge at the beginning taking photos.

Hiked 9/5/18 from shuttle stop. Apparently there's a new trail, because this is a shorter route than going from the car parking. It goes through a nice clearing with mountain views, but does not go by St Mary Lake. An easy, pleasant walk with both mountain and waterfall views. Be sure to look east (away from St Mary Falls) for nice views.

Easy path, beautiful canyon and thrilling waterfall at the end.

One of my all time favourite views.

A short hike, most of which is pretty easy going. The first part of the trail is pretty boring but the falls make up for it. Suitable for all levels including kids.

Wonderful hike! The switchbacks are through shoulder high pine trees, making for beautiful vistas. The creek crossing is lovely, the forest beautiful, then you reach the box canyon and fully see the glacier - glorious. You hear the water in the creek and the rumble of the glacier above. The loop over the top plateau is quite steep and loose rock, super fun (better with hiking poles). Fantastic views. No bugs this time of year.

an amazing hike in all directions. easy hike if you are in shape. a glacier park must do!

This trail starts off easy but definitely becomes more difficult as the elevation increases. It’s a steady climb up to the tea house. Make sure to go past the tea house to the look out, it’s worth the extra effort! We stopped at the tea house after hiking to the lookout and had a bite to eat. Expensive but you are eating halfway up a mountain. I recommend trekking poles and possibly crampons as it was slippery after the recent snowfall.

Relatively easy hike if you're in average shape, and the view was amazing even with a lot of smoke. Lots of wildlife along the trail, just don't crowd them. We saw mountain goats at multiple times on the trail as well as passing bighorn sheep. Get there early or take a shuttle because parking is limited and this is a popular destination.

Hike to the basin. Totally worth it.

Super awesome view for a fairly easy hike. Some steep areas but worth it. Definitely going to do this hike next time I’m in town! Lots of horse poop so keep a look out!

I went September 15th and there was already snow and would recommend wearing boots and if going to the view point then bring cramp ons.Was totally worth it to go the extra to the view point

Fun hike, although I wouldn't say it was a favorite, except for the extra part after the teahouse, which was really fun! I tend to enjoy hikes that are a little more difficult though, so if you're looking for something pretty steady and with great views, this is definitely a must! We started with the first bus at 7am and it was cold and rainy. On the way up, the sky cleared a bit and we had good views of the glaciers at the top. Coming back down, it started raining and we were frozen by the end. Worth it!

Really great trail! Parking lot is small so we had to park on side of the road but wasn’t too far. I took my 7 and 4 year old kids with me. We didn’t do the uphill part, but we did the trail that takes you all around the lake. It was 7.5 km and took us 2 hrs with stops for the kids to play by the lake, which you could do at 3 or 4 spots where the trail levels out to the lake. Easy walk, no major steep sections. Muddy in some parts, for sure. Lots of great views. Many people come to get a glimpse of the lake but few do the trail, making it relatively quiet along the way. Highly recommended.

Hiked on 9/15 to the overlook. About 6-8 inches of snow from the prior storms. Sun came out for a little while at the top and it was a winter wonderland! Snow on trails was packed and easily passable. However, the trail could become icy overnight if temperatures stay low, and then would be treacherous. Overall, it’s a fantastic hike!

Love walking the dogs there. I feel safe and easy access. Great views from every angle.

Beautiful.

A great hike with wonderful views every part of the way, def a moderate hike; hard to some that don't hike often! I did the loop starting by going up to the tea house at Lake Agnes and continuing around Big Beehive and connecting to the 6 Glacier trail. The trail is moderate and should be attempted by folks in decent shape as it is a longer hike (lots of visitors not knowing the scale of this hike and I found lots of ill-equipped people on the trail, such as no water, wearing jeans, no day-packs). Plan on spending 4-5 hours on the trail if doing the loop, more if you plan to have tea at both houses. Side note, horses use the trails so beware of poop ;) If you like, you can continue for another 30-40 mins on from the 6 glaciers tea house to a closer view of the glaciers. This trail is narrow and steep in sections but wonderful, you get to hear the glaciers/snow cracking! Also, 90% of the hike is exposed to the sun and you will get hot.

Great exercise, and the view at the lake is breathtaking! Lake is freezing, but there are plenty of deer and other wildlife to be seen on the way. Running shoes worked during the summer-
Busy trail with a lot of families, but still recommend

Definitely not a hike, rather a walk to a view point of Morraine Lake. Great views from the top of the lake and surrounding mountains (though we went today 9/13 and there was heavy snow and limited visibility so the view was very obstructed). Parking is extremely limited and unless you get there early will need to park elsewhere and take a shuttle (for a fee I believe) or be part of a tour group. The one huge drawback (other than lack of parking) is the large number of tour groups that show up and inundate the trail and view points. To me really takes away from the beauty of the place when are trying to enjoy it and people are jostling to get past you to take their millions of selfies. It seems that many would rather take pictures of themselves there then taking in the beauty of it all.
