Arrived early evening, not too many people were around but would be very busy in the middle of the day. Great viewpoint for almost no effort.

easy viewpoint

Monday 6th August 2018. Mid day start, just over 2hours to the top and an hour down. Beautiful scenery and hardly anyone else on the trail. Steep in sections and at the top. A lot of mosquitos, very windy past the tree line, no large wildfire. Fun

Great trail. Not too difficult, but some fairly steep terrain for a few minutes. Make sure you stay right when making the loop. You’ll have a more gradual climb and the best views that way. That saves the steeper decline for the way back. The return of the loop also has great views of the surrounding mountains and lakes.

great views of the falls

Starts off easy, paved road. then changes to mixture of dirt and rocks. steady uphill, steep in a lot of places. took many many breaks. trail is well outlined. the summit was relief and sense of accomplishment!! very windy at the summit! lots of berries and chipmunks! coming down from the summit was a bit challenging. go EARLY morning when it's cool out. it took us 3 hours to get to the top, I don't have greatest fitness level and my blood sugar gave me numerous issues but chugged along. coming down took 1 hour and 15 mins.
only downside was the smoke from the fires made it hard to see far away but was a very good climb!
go to the hotsprings after!

It took us about 1 hour and 30 min to get to the top in a nice steady pace. View from the top was spectacular.

I recommend to start early it gets pretty crowded as the day goes by and it gets pretty hot too.

Windy at the top so bring a wind stopper.
Hiking poles and hiking boots are recommended.

Amazing views and worth the hike, but not recommended for people sensitive to heights.

Excellent views from the top, but most of the hike is unremarkable.

Access road still closed for the season!

This is not a hike. It’s an easy walk along a paved road/sidewalk. That being said, the waterfall is stunning and the walk along the river in one direction and the walk along the canyon in the other direction are both beautiful as well. Good for families with little kids or elderly people. The main part is handicap accessible

Such a wonderful trail with a wonderful view once you reach the top. A couple nice spots along the way with views and spots to sit and relax for a bit. Recommend hiking poles, especially for the way down. Will absolutely do again when I come back to visit.

Climbed up to the summit back in 05.

Nice view of the town along the way.

We were hit by a snow squall as we broke the treeline. Made cairn spotting interesting.

It was nice to be able to take the gondola back down after a hot meal at the top!

I hope to go back.

Not a hike more of a short walk, visit early in the day as lots of tour buses stop here.

Great trail !

Went on my birthday - solo - because I'm the coolest person on Earth. Good thing this is one of the best hikes on Earth. So we have that in common...

Great Hike! The boyfriend and I started at 9 in the morning and we were back down by 12 after having lunch at the summit and taking in the views!

I really enjoyed this trail. The views are incredible. There aren't many flat parts but there are plenty of benches and rest areas along the way. Definitely make sure you go all the way to the top once you get above the tree line. The Miette Hot Springs after were a perfect way to unwind

easy hike to a beautiful end point!

Good hike, beautiful views on the mountains :) try bald hills as well if you can

One of my favourites. Definitely on the harder side because of how steep it is most of the way up. But the views are great! I suggest starting in the morning and having lunch at the restaurant up top. Took me about 3 hours to hike up to the restaurant with a few stops for water. Come prepared with water and snacks, dress in layers, bring sunscreen and bug repellent, and make sure to wear good shoes and socks!

This hike is an experience! Started at 3pm, was done by 6pm done at a very fast pace. Was unfortunately a rainy/cloudy day (we were hoping it would clear up), nevertheless still a must do hike. Definitely make sure you have warm clothes! The top was windy and temps definitely dropped quickly above the tree line. Very steep hike, hiking poles very helpful, basically all switchbacks. Don't stop at the first lookout above the treeline! It's worth it to keep going until you're actually at the top! The views were still cool, but I know would have been even better if it wasn't a rainy/cloudy day. Thank goodness for the hot springs at the end!

Beautiful trail, a bit too much human intervention - fences, stairs etc, loses the effect of wild nature. We walked thru the bridges to bridge six and back. Nice walk !

Great views

nice trail

It was definitely on the hard side of moderate in some places. once out of the alpine the views were amazing for the little we could see due to a storm blowing in. I would recommend this trail.

Amazing trail, boyfriend and I made it to the summit in 1hr 47mins with some breaks. It’s a pretty steady uphill, so take lots of breaks and bring lots of water! (Also sunscreen and bug spray and definitely needed, and try to go in the morning so it’s cooler and less crowded) Going down is easier than going up of course. Also, make sure to go to the very summit, don’t just stop at the plateau! It’s very steep and difficult at the top, but the views are 100% worth it! Will be doing this hike again for sure!

we had a very wet hike up, but nice misty view from the top. The hot springs at the bottom were a perfect after hike activity
