This trail is absolutely stunning. A must do if you can pop over to Yoho.

Tough climb but beautiful views of the peaks and valleys. We did this on Nov 17, trail was easy to follow - microspikes and poles a must.

beautiful hike! parked at the closed parking area and walked across the creek, theres a clearly marked trail. its pretty steep the first few kms as you get up to the ridge, a few areas of exposure but mostly in the trees. we went up novemeber 11th and there was snow but some areas were still free of snow, alot more snow on the ridge, spikes are a must!!

Parked at closed day use area. Walked north across the river and the trail is very visible. Steep trail be prepared for some leg burn. Completed Nov 5,18 and I didn’t use spikes or poles. Was a little slippery so spikes would be beneficial. Took me 3 hours, very Little climbing rock. Just near the summit you have a tiny scramble. Only got the view for 10 minutes or so because the clouds and snow blew in. Good workout. I will have to do it again on a clear day because I did not get the full view at the summit.

Hiked it NOV. 3rd.. we parked at the day park area which was closed. Followed the trail north along hwy40, that lead into the bushes. trail was steep and Icey going up. Spikes and poles were key, once you get to the ridge you can explore right and left, left will take u up to the summit, pretty easy going from there. 1 foot of snow, but well tracked down. Awesome 360 views of the valley and all peaks around. Absolutely gorgeous.
Decent was icey and muddy, bush waked the whole way down to stay off the muddy trail . Was an awesome hike. We took our time with lots of breaks to take nature in. Up and down in 4 hours.

We went on October 27th, 2018 and it was snowing and windy the whole way up. Crampons or microspikes required! It cleared up a bit by the time we got to the ridge, but conditions were bad enough we didn’t risk going all the way to the summit. Would love to do again in the summer!

Only made it to around the 2.2km mark (top of the brownish coloured hill before heading up to the shute to see the other side). It was too windy to complete on Saturday. My friends made it up to the start of the ridge. Some people were crossing the ridge towards the peak. Bring microspikes and poles and gaiters and you'll be fine. Watch out for snow in the bowl up top crossing to the ridge. This warm weather might make things interesting (av path?). Too windy for pictures. Tracked trail, foot prints to walk in. Warm weather makes snow too slushy though. I will try this again on a non-windy day. Otherwise, great trail.

Did this hike October 17th. Beautiful and not too difficult. Crampons would be helpful towards the top. Lost my prescription ray bans on the way down however! If anyone decides to go and finds them please contact me and I will be so thankful! 403 975 3514

A very busy hike up to the summit or hot spring. Well worth the incline to get there with the views from the natural spring. Will defs be going again with the husband ! Highly recommend

Some beautiful vistas and well worth the hike in the fall time. Colours at the peak are brilliant, but pushing on to the lake is worth the extra effort. Trail is really well marked and maintained. The second section to Egypt is a bigger elevation gain/loss, but with time and good company this is a fantastic fall hike

Hiked to the hotsprings today, very snowy traverse across to the path. make sure you have appropriate footwear or it could be a sketchy trip.
Didn't make it to the summit as the weather was turning and I wasn't feeling super confident in the snow. Hot springs fit 2 people in the top spring and the same in the bottom which is much shallower.
A good workout and diverse scenery.

Great hike! Not hard until you start the scramble to summit (it's a lot further up than you think lol!).

Fairly well trafficked the day we went, easily saw 20-30 people throughout the day. The hot springs, while a nice feature, are not worth hiking in for alone... The water wasn't very warm and there is maybe enough room for 4-6 adults max (expect legs to touch under water with those numbers).
Summit scramble is amazing! Lactic acid build up is real after this one :) you will be rolling out those quads/glutes/shins the day after ;)

Saw no wildlife, kids, or pets on this one.

Steep and beautiful hike. The views were amazing especially with the leaves changing colours.

Led Zeppelin wrote a song about this hike i think? The majority of the hike is in the trees with a steady incline. We hit the summit in under 3 hours and roundtrip was under 5; including a beer break and some goofing around at the summit. Great echo from the top to practice your goat calls. We paired this hike with a pint of Goat Locker Fainting Block beer...Bon Mot!

Short hike up to the pass, then scramble to the summit, which was a long and exhausting, two step forward one step back climb. The warm spring was a nice detour.

Awesome hike!

Loved this hike! Steep right away till you hit the ridge with a few short level(ish) spots on the way up. Amazing views from the ridge, gorgeous all the way along. Go all the way to the end for a tiny scramble to the highest point and more amazing views beyond. Will be back for sure! One thing to note, I read in a blog post that there was the "new trail" which you follow to the left, and the "old trail" to the right. I think we wound up on the old one on the way down because it was a bit steeper and had some small rock ledges to climb down which we definitely didn't encounter on our way up. Nothing crazy though, and made for a more interesting descent in the end. 4 Stars only because I would have liked it more if it was longer and a bit more challenging. I would rate it more moderate than hard.

Sick hike. Start of trail doesn't look like much from the road but if you see a short survey marker sticking out of the ground 6-10 inches you've got the right trail. You go through a thick forest which opens into a grassy alpine valley where you stay low until you crest the ridge. Can see why this valley would be prime grizzly territory but didn't see any (bear spray recommended). At the ridge, hang a sharp left over a grassy hill where you will drop back into a different, scree-filled valley and see the trail again. We got about 2h in when we were hit with thunder, lightning and about 5cm of snow which seemingly came out of nowhere. Had to turn around but will definitely be back.

Great switchback trail. longer than we expected, though the terrain was mild. Rocky scramble to the peak, similar to EEOR or Ha ling. The views at the top are absolutely stunning. Definitely would recommend this hike to anyone looking to spend about 3 1/2 - 4 hours round trip.

We only went as far as the lookout hut as we were short on time but the views were still beautiful. A gradual incline most of the way up. On the way down we went out to Sherbrooke Lake too. 10km round trip, 2h 30mins.

A large Marmot ran across the path in front of us, the biggest one I’ve ever seen, gave me a bit of a fright!

Took the Mist Mountain trail up to the summit on August 4th. Was harder than anticipated. The group was us 4 girls who are in decent shape and experienced with backpacking. We each had 40lb backpacks on and it was a struggle to summit this mountain once you cross the valley. Took us all day so we had to make a level space on the side of the slope to pitch our tent. There is no water available after the waterfall except for a small spring on a side of a rock that is tricky to find, so be prepared when you summit.

The second day we started from our tent, hiked the rest of the summit, then turned around and followed trail back down the mountain. Saw 2 grizzlies in the valley about 1-2km away from trail. We also saw a pika, marmot, and chipmunks.

Would not recommend as a backpacking hike. I would only suggest summiting this mountain if you are doing it with a light pack and are in good shape with hiking experience and appropriate hiking gear. Did not find the hot springs, rumour has it that they are in the valley. Follow trail across waterfall in the lower valley and it will take you to a second smaller waterfall where the hot springs supposedly are.

We went when it was smokey outside, but we could see some amazing views of the mountains through the smoke. This will be a hike we will return to next year to get an amazing view of the mountains.

We clearly did not do enough research prior to this hike, and since we lost cell reception just after the #1, we were unable to confirm any additional details of the hike. There is a king creek parking lot, but be aware the hike does not start from the parking lot, and in fact starts just off hwy 40, prior to the parking lot turn off. We ended up walking down the creek and did find another trail, which ended up leading us to a dead end. We did not see anyone else on that trail, however nor did we see any wildlife. We will be back to do the proper hike again.

Did this hike on 8/17/18 starting from parking area and going up clockwise behind hostel. Good views of the falls on the way up. Pretty steep for the first few miles. Then some up and down along the ridge for a couple of miles. Great view and cool breeze from the glaciers above you. Once you start down you will be in the forest again. There was smoke when we were hiking, but still some great views. We are mid 60' s and had no problems, but we are also not in any big hurry.

Hiked Iceline to little yoho to whaleback and camped at twin falls. Long day but the views were great. Best view in my opinion is the top of whaleback switchbacks.

Decent hike up, scrambled up to the peak, views were below ave due to wildfire smoke, otherwise would have given 4 stars. Getting to the lookout is simple enough. This was the first scramble I've ever attempted, went up off path via larger rocks to the right which provided decent footholds, came down on the path which is mostly loose rock and dirt, took a few falls, would not recommend coming down this way, stick to the larger rock segments.

perfect morning for a hike. definitely a rocky time climbing up and down. no wind at the top today.

As other reviewers noted, this hike has a bit of everything. We opted for the summit first, and we ended up taking a fairly direct route up, by going up one of the earlier scree slopes (rather than following the valley to the back scree slopes that go right up to the peak. It was steep and challenging, and we'd recommend this path rather than following the trail around to the back. The rocks were just a bit larger and firmer going up this way which we felt was probably better than scrambling up through scree. Bring poles and expect a challenge.

The ridge is breath taking and the views are limitless. You really feel like you're on top of the world.

We also saw momma grizzly, although from a long distance and she was playing around trying to catch one of the gophers. Marmots are everywhere, and virtually unafraid of us. They seemed quite curious and "led" us up through the rocks.

Hot springs on the way down was the "cherry on top" for this hike. Such an incredible experience after a challenging hike and summit.

I am head over heels for this mountain. Such a fun scramble with incredible views and short ridge walks. It has a bit of everything, grassy valleys, forested trail, hot (warm) springs, and great elevation. We saw a grizzly so bring bear spray! It was far from us so we weren't too worried but be aware. Moving time was approximately 8 hours taking lots of photos, breaks, and time to take everything in. I highly recommend this hike to anyone who loves scrambles and scree skiing!

We did this as an extension to Healy Pass. Totally worth it, but definitely a long day hike. Excellent hike.
