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.

I was there again on April 15th, it was really, really slushy. I’d recommend gaiters! Also there was a few patches where we sank into the snow well past our knees although it made for a great laugh, it was a bit more work to get out of the snow. Still beautiful and worth the adventure. Take some extra clothes to be dry on the ride home!

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

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

Fantastic underrated kid friendly winter trail! Make sure to have crampons or cleats (especially for little ones). Do not let the beginning of the trek fool you. Once you get past the industrial plant and into the canyon it is incredible and half the people than Johnston. My kids thought it was incredible to climb the rock sides and slide down as well as climb the frozen waterfall at the end. Take a lunch and a beverage for the end and enjoy :)

great kid friendly trail!

would do this one again spikes recommended

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

It sure why the moderate rating. It’s easy fun and of coarse a must see if you have not done before

Nic trail and at highest elevation stay near trail area it seems open in areas where you can be tempered to wander a bit but beware as thermo features are not clearly marked off so danger danger of if wander

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.

Great easy winter trail. Good for dogs as well.
Well maintained - definitely need crampons!

Recommend ice picks! Awesome trail though in good shape

Great winter hike, minimal elevation and very protected, definitely need crampons towards the end as it got pretty icy.

Absolutely breathtaking! Definitely advise to wear some sort of traction on your boots however as it is icy in spots.

Sure, you have to pass a cement plant. That’s such a small part of the trail and it keeps getting better and better. It exceeded my expectations. Lots to explore once you get to the waterfall.

This trail is very nice because it takes you to the top of Yellowstone’s most famous waterfall. Looking down you can truly take in the power of the falls. This path is good for all ages and is very easy. Also if you are in this part of Yellowstone I recommend you go to Artists Point for more great views of the falls.

Amazing views, easy to hike. Very close from Canmore .
be prepared to wear warm clothes because once you are walking in the canyon, it is cold.

You need ice cleats but is a fantastic experience to walk on iced watrer spring leading to water falls.

Did the canyon trail hike on February 9th. Needed yaktrax on the ice even with fresh snow. Do not recommend going without some sort of ice cleats or grips. Highly encourage trekking poles or ski poles for those less steady on their feet, especially coming back down. Worth the hike to see the ice climbers. We went past the climbers and blazed a trail in the new snow up past the cave to the right. Had lunch on a boulder and enjoyed the views

Awesome hike completed Jan 30, 2018.

A great winter hike route if you are short on time. I did this in 21/2hrs while stopping to take photos and appreciate the views. Right up to the fire lookout/helipad. Could be a good sunrise/sunset hike. Will do it again perhaps in the Fall and follow Jewell Pass this time to make it alittle longer.

A great hike where the effort is minimal for the rewarding scenery. I did the hike on a Sunday morning and was the only one on the trail. The snow was a bit deeper at the top but snowshoes aren’t necessary, I just wore my summer hiking boots, thick woollies and yak trax slippers. I ran down using my trekking poles and the snow felt marshmallow-ey, fun fun! Only 4 stars because the forest walk was boring.
