Good hike, rather busy with other people and bikers, but well worth the effort.

Wonderful hike in Canmore! The lakes were blocked off for reclamation so we weren’t able to find the petroglyphs. We went earlier in the morning so it wasn’t crowded at all. Adorable benches, bridges, waterfalls and beautiful views.

beautiful.
fyi.. super short hike.
I finished it in 1hr.

Have done this hike a number of times - once in the winter and of course different times in the summer/fall. Have been up past the first set to the waterfalls in behind - though yesterday’s was just to the first set. I’m sure this is one we will do time and time again when we want an easy hike with the reward of a waterfall at the end!

Great hike! We planned to do the difficult hike up and the easy back but ended up doing the hard hike both ways due to a bear on the easy path. The hard hike has some very steep sections but the waterfalls and views are well worth it!

Great scenic trail but very easy to get lost shortly after the waterfall with so many paths. We were lost for at least an hour and ran into another group that were also lost but we headed for the water and eventually made our way back to a trail.

Perfect little hike for 2 mums and 4 young kids :)

Amazing hike, very heavily trafficked, lots of people. Little disappointed that the lake section was closed off. Went up by the Pipeline to hang for a snack. Took easy route up, hard down. Found the hard way down was easier than going up. Would do this one again.

Beautiful hike. I did this trail in May 2017 with my 2 year old son. Beautiful mountains surrounding you as you enter the beginnings of the actual mountain you are about to hike. Glorious waterfall, that gives off a refreshing mist. Historical rock beside the waterfall that looks like a troll (I'm guessing that's why it's named troll falls?) anyways! it was great . wouldn't say it's as easy with a little kid by your side but it's still worth it! so much fun!

I've done this hike many times. it is satisfying for all skill levels. great views and a very short drive from Calgary.

Fantastic trail to a gorgeous mountain meadow with meandering stream and varying degrees of waterfalls. We went with a friend, and between us had children between ages of 4-9. It was a fairly easy hike for all of them, with a bit of hand-holding for the youngest. We loved all the wildflowers still in bloom.
Always bring a sweater when you're in the mountains!

Very nice hike with some decent views. My 5 and 7 year old were able to do it no problem. Took us about 2 hours round trip from the bottom car park. A good workout for us not-so-experienced hikers!

Our favourite family friendly hike. We do it every year.

This was a fun beautiful hike. We kept going and saw a lot of fantastic waterfalls and views.

Amazing hike with breathtaking views. I would not recommend doing this hike without poles. I also wouldn’t recommend bringing larger dogs as it would be difficult to cross the chains.
It was a challenging hike but completed with 5 hours at a moderate pace with lunch on the summit. Definitely don’t do this as your first hike of the year.

Gorgeous hike, steady uphill into the Cirque the amazing views around the loop. Option to go higher/farther into the Cirque. Lots of people, we started at 11, and by 1230 the parking lot was overfilling

This was a good hike. We did this with our two boys (10&8), and our pup. It wasn’t to long but long enough for an evening hike.

If you’re looking for an easy stroll, this isn’t it. If you want to challenge yourself the reward at the summit is well worth it. 360 degree view from the top.
The last third of the climb is quite steep and a bit technical at spots. Some loose gravel/sand here and there and a bit of exposure.
We were worried about coming down but the descent was easier than expected. Plan 4-5 hours if you’re moderately fit but not rushing it.

Awesome hike to do with the family. We took a 6 year old & two 3 year olds on the difficult trail and they loved it. Lakes at the end are all closed off though for reclamation, so not much to do or see once you get to the top.

Good change to an alpine hike from more typical lower mainland trails. Nice flowers, butterflies and birds as well. The views at the top are supposed to be great but visibility today was limited due to smoke. It was still really good even though I didn’t get the “full experience” at the top. The trail itself is in excellent condition though the same cannot be said for the road. The road has a lot of washout but they are really solid bottomed so you don’t need to worry about anything but clearance.

The view up top is amazing!

Vraiment une belle petite randonné avec une petite fille de 7ans !!

I wouldn’t classify this route as hard more of a moderate. 2nd favourite in the Canmore area

Great for a short first hike with family and dogs!

Awesome climb and unbelievable views! Get off you butt and climb it!

Great short hike. Weather was around +14 and a little Smokey our. I arrived at 9:45am and there was plenty of parking available, the hike was not busy until on our way back. Then it got busy and the parking lot was full. Took it slow as I had my puppy with me. It took us about 2 hours to complete with breaks.

Great hike! Went with kids ranging from 3-12. Beautiful scenery and worth the small grind at the beginning.

Hiked this trail with my dad and our friend from Ireland! He'd never done a hike like this before so it was a great first experience. When we reached the chain it was sleeting, made for a sketchy crossing. The scree ski on the way down was a highlight!
