Very crowded. Good mountain views and nice lake.

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.

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 and easy walk in -30 weather

Nice and easy. It is worth the view.

Neat little hike, did it with snowshoes but the trail was packed enough that you could probably easily manage without.

All 3 different falls are unique and spectacular.

Great hike for kids or a quick trek for adults. Not as much traffic in the winter, which is better for photo opportunities.

A pleasant jaunt up to the frozen falls. Snowshoes may have been overkill, path is well groomed. But splitting off into the woods is always fun with those snowshoes strapped on. Some ice climbers on the falls was cool to watch. Short hike for a quick troll stroll. But don’t forget to pay the Troll Toll.

Very pleasant snowshoeing circuit. Fairly easy for kids and not busy at all. Great views once you get to Marl Lake.

Nice hiking for cold days.the hike is easy to do and it has beautiful views.it is recommendable to wear ice cleats/crampons.

Did the trail to the Upper Falls on February 8th right after the snowfall. Beautiful hike. Used yaktrax’s to help steady myself on the trail. Probably didn’t need them. Highly recommend for beginners

So beautiful! Definitely take shoe spikes in the winter! Lifesavers!

Easy family trail/walk. It's crowded even in winter, I couldn't imagine during summer with strollers... Cleats recommended. Nice view and fun for kids.

Nice and easy trail. Very icy/snowy in winter, pikes cleats recommended. Lower trail closed during winter due to ice and ice falls but accessible with care. That's probably the better part of the trail, don't skip it if you have the right equipment.

My phone died, so the recording is inaccurate.

-15, still comfortable temperature as long as the appropriate clothing is used.

Some steeper parts, but has rails almost the whole way along, handy. Hiking sandles would be comfortable in the summer. Saw several kids around 5yo doing just fine. Path is narrow especially with heavy traffic, strollers not ideal.

Completed this in 1hr at a moderate pace, plenty of stops for photos.

VERY busy in the summer until past the upper Falls.

Nice easy trail for a couple of older ones

Great hike and nice creeks with a bridge along the way.

Unfortunately, we didn't get to see any of the actual paint pots because of the snow. The hike was well worth it though!

Great afternoon hike!

My favourite! Short and so sweet!

Nice leisurely walk for all ages, beautiful scenery busy during the day with lineups on the foot bridge near the lower falls.

Super easy trail with beautiful ponds and some wall climbing.

great little hike to start the new year off right.

Short and simple but plenty to be awed with. :)

Nice little winter hike. I used crampons but could probably do with just some good boots. On a nice day people were pouring in at around noon. Get there early to enjoy the solitude.
