Very simple easy trail, barely a hike. Great views of the canyon and surrounding area through the whole way. Very busy when we went and unfortunately were seeing LOTS of people jumping the fenses and getting way too close to ledges for pictures.

Gorgeous trail, will be trying it again when the snow melts! We made it a bit past the party summit but turned back when the slippery snowy/muddy slope hit some exposure (wayyy too dangerous for my liking). Still a beautiful hike/easy scramble up to that point -- loved it!

Beautiful view. Love it!

Summited on Jan 1st. Incredible views all the way up, challenging steady elevation, fun scrambling, spikes necessary. Trail is still clearly defined.

Fairly easy trail, snow was well packed so didn’t use snowshoes. Nice hike, would do this one again in summer.

Have done this short hike several times in summer and it was just as beautiful in winter. Snow was well packed so didn’t use snowshoes.

Easy trail with awesome scenic views.

Did this trek on Dec 28, 2018. The views on the way up and at the top are insane and totally worth the effort up there! The top third of the trail has a lot of loose rocks and a mix of fresh and packed snow. Do not try this without spikes!!! The very top is a scramble with loose rock so be careful! It also drops at least 20 degrees between the top and the last 50 feet so make sure you camera is easily accessible ... you’re going to want your warmest gloves for this one!

Great trail for snowshoeing in all lavels.

The rating of 1 star is just so I can update users that the trail to access this hike is currently blocked for use by the sled dog tour companies. Unless you’re sure there are no dog tours that day pick a different trail.

Just hiked yesterday (December 25th) and the trail was gently packed through the tree line. Good boots, and some ice cleats and you would be fine. Didn’t see the trail markers on the way up, just used the GPS but the views were beautiful and enjoyed the quiet.
Got to just above the tree line where you cross the creek and start gaining more elevation where the snow was knee deep, so with snow shoes it would be more manageable.
Took about 2.5 hours up and back again, would do again and recommend decent for any moderately fit skill level.
A reminder, you’ll have to park about 1km away from the trailhead as the campground is closed. The path was well groomed and a pleasant start to warm up!

I did this hike yesterday and it was great! Parts of the trail are pretty dry if not dusty. There is a thin layer of snow and ice on the trail that is exposed and not protected by the trees. Higher up it's a bit deep but it has been packed down from other hikers. It's definitely doable if you have microspikes and poles. I actually thought it was easier this time then in the summer because the spikes gripped into the ground. Made for a beautiful day in the sunshine!

completed yesterday, don't go without micro spikes or crampons, pretty slippery but also very doable.amd rewarding. if you wear proper snow gear then it's not very cold at the top!

It’s steep as you hike up on a used trail along the side of the mountain and then you come to a clearing of large rocks and boulders. The trail seems to disappear. However it is clear which way to go. You get out of breath as the incline increases but at the top where the “Tea House” is the views of Canmore and the Mountains are spectacular! There is no real Tea House that you can dine at. This is a difficult slow climb and recommend for the seasoned hiker.

Very challenging and rewarding hike. We wore micro spikes and used poles for the snow and ice- very glad we did!
Pretty cold and windy at the top for this time of year , we only made it to the helicopter pad and back. Took almost 4.5 hours.
Legs are sore today !
Will definitely do this trail again - hoping to reach the summit in the spring/summer.

I spent a perfect morning hiking this awesome mountain! The weather is stunning for November. It took me around 2.5 hours to get to the teahouse.

Definitely a good leg workout (i was feeling the burn for sure haha) especially near the end. Beautiful view once you make it up :)

Excellent day with dry conditions! We clocked 11 km and 912 metre gain to helipad! 4 hours 10 minutes with lots of breaks! Amazing hike and views! Can’t wait to come back and go up ridge !

Thigh burner for sure! Some snow and packed ice present, spikes and poles recommended. Got lucky and had a glorious sunshine lunch on the helipad - very little wind.

Did this hike yesterday with my dog, it was absolutely amazing , it was both of our first time ever really hiking in the Canadian Rockies. Amazing views on the way up and absolutely breath taking on the way down, times this one out perfectly to watch the sun setting behind the mountains. 5 hours total and that’s with stopping for multiple water and food breaks for myself and my dog.

Great hike with amazing views very quick with very quick (steep) elevation gain. Unfortunately we opted to turn back with only a short distance left to go due to snow and ice on the scree with the final scramble. Having already trudged through waist deep snow once past the ridge line - not only was the scree risky with the snow and ice we were getting pretty tired. This hike would be best avoided now until the snow melts, (unless you only intend to go to the ridge line - which the views from there are still very amazing).

Enjoyable hike with scenic views of the spray lakes for most of the way. The campground is closed so parked at the further parking lot and walked along the road 1km to the trailhead. The initial trail was flat terrain for about 2 km but quite icy in multiple spots. Took us 3.5 hours to get to the beginning of the lateral moraine, from where the glacier would probably be visible in summer. We turned around at this point due to knee-height snow and undefined trail/glacier. Decent winter hike but lack of reward in reaching the destination. Fresh snowfall would make the trail more difficult to follow in winter. However, would recommend with variety of terrain and views.

Fun hike always have mountain beavers (marmots) screaming at me

Love this hike. Did it in the summer and hit a rain storm on the way down which wasn’t too great. Other than that super fun, forest, loose rock and boulders lead up to amazing views.
