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!

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.

Wonderful trail. Coming from Australia where snow in most parts non-existent, it was gorgeous and exhilerating to walk in the snow, still very compacted in mid April. The fresh mountain air is amazing and to see the frozen lake and it starting to melt was a 1st! With the picturesque snow capped mountains as a backdrop it was breathtaking. Lots of dogs coming and going. Restroom at start and lots of little trails/bridges out to the lake. Small car park and not far from Whistler Village. Few little bridges with running water. Nice and peaceful being amongst nature! ❄️❄️

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!

Beautiful hike with 4 years old boy!
Alot to see in 1hour!

Awesome hike today! Spikes needed.

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

Very nice trail. The only problem that the last part of the road to the trail was unpaved. However, it was an easy one and once you reach the lake, you can enjoy the view. We went on the fall so we could not enjoy the flowers so that I hope I can go again in the summer

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 :)

A very nice trail , it has step sections but is very manageable, also very. yay as the weather was nice. The view at the trail end is breath taking !

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

Very steep at the beginning but very easy after about the first 2/3. The snow covered lake is in a beautiful bowl of peaks! Can’t wait to get back in summer!

This was a beautiful trail!! The trail offers some outstanding views once making it past the steep inclines. Most of the hike is in tree covering, but once you make it to the opening it is a worthy hike!! Our snowshoes worked out great and we wore minimal layers as we heated up quickly during climbing. I’d advise bringing additional layers for the opening as the winds tend to pick up past the tree line.
- great trail signage
- moderate/medium level difficulty during winter
- spectacular views
- easy access in and out of trail

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.

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