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.

Some icy spots, some muddy spots, some dry spots. Overall enjoyable hike with intervals between steep and level trail. Took 2 hours to casually stroll and stop to enjoy views.

A nice Sunday walk. Trails were snowy and slushy but coming along nicely.

Nice views and a good walk. Still pretty snow covered in most spots and I found the on site maps a bit hard to figure out. The loop I took was about an hour walk :)

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.

Snow packed trails are in good condition. Short muddy sections are getting a little greasy/slippery.

Great little hike for after work

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

March 25/18
• We didn't power through this, lunch included it only took us 2HRS
• We went counterclockwise, which we would do that way again as the incline is a little more gradual and you get the views on the way back
• Still plenty of snow, a little icy but completely doable with winter boots

Hiked this trail today with my 11mo in a back pack.
Wore good hiking boots and had poles because I anticipated some icy spots (which there were but nothing too concerning). There has been some fresh snow lately so that provided good grip.
Happy Hiking

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

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!

Easy hike but definitely need crampons in the spring. If you are lucky enough to go before the summer when the tourists hit you may have the place completely to yourself! Other than the howling wolves it was majestic :)

Easy hike for beginners!!

Such a beautiful short hike in the winter!
Don’t forget to say hi to the trolls!

Great trail for snowshoeing. I’d definitely come back again.

Beautiful in winter, slippery on uphills but fine with good winter boots and warm clothing. The upper falls are beautiful when frozen.

Nice and easy. It is worth the view.
