To Do Map

Just do it!!

One of my favorite in glacier national park! I would recommend doing it from Logan’s Pass & working down. The views are amazing, being able to see the whole valley & the vast scenery of the whole park is worth the distance! Nightly recommend!

View was way better than Big Beehive. Well worth the extra 45 minute scramble to the top.

Hiked this back in July. Amazing hike with great views as a good length of the trail is along the side of the mountain with the valley and Going to the Sun Rd below. Shuttled up to Logan Pass and then hiked back to the car that way. There’s a short path a little over half way through that goes up to the Grinnell Glacier overlook. Would definitely recommend this but while the hike is short, the elevation gain is pretty tough at this point. If starting from Logan Pass, there’s a nice little stream/watering hole near the end of the trail that was wonderful to sit in after doing the hike.

A very rewarding hike with a stunning view of Ha Ling and Canmore. difficult but worth it. Ice cleats recommend as the scramble is still quite slippery

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.

First trail we took on our trip to Banff. What a way to start! So much for easing into things. The reward at the end was more than worth it. Tea was wonderful. The return trip seemed to be more difficult, but was worth every step.

Amazing hike, weather is getting warmer. Just be a little careful now , ensure proper gear is on hand.

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 :)

nice and short hike for our first in Banff, great views along the way and nothing difficult to encounter on the way. cleats made a huge difference because the packed snow trail was a bit slippery without them.

Easy hike for beginners!!

My favourite hike of all time.

one of the best trails ever hiked in my 68 years of life!

Nice and easy. It is worth the view.

Trail is in good shape. Some people in boots have made the first bit rough but clears up soon. Beautiful views & no one else on the trail!

Trust the ratings when it says this trail is hard. There was a lot of scramble to get to the summit, and although we brought our dog, he could not make it to the summit, with fear he would cut the pads of his paws. I recommend bringing back up socks for the decent once you pass the snow.

This trail has no markers or set paths, so be very cautious you don't get turned around on the way down.

Goat Pond is a short drive past the start point for some easy sight seeing.

Easy, and pretty.

Good hike to do. Snow is packed for almost the entire way except the highest part where the wind blows and created some drifting.

Great little hike with fantastic views! Short & easy, and seems to be a popular trail as there were lots of people.

A nice winter hike with or without crampons. Going counterclockwise gave us a nice view on the return, and there are a couple of side paths you can take up to higher ground to see a bit more. There's a big flow of ice on one part of the trail but it's easy enough to get around.

We took our XC skis out February 21 and there was plenty of snow. Beautiful hike in the trees until we got to the lake where it opens up to Mountain View’s. Great trail we will come again.

beautiful beginning to a relentless climb! understatement, I plan on making this my first hike of the next season.
you climb and climb and climb stop take a break.... Those last few hours of going up and you still have few more hours of going up! wonderful hike
