To do with Kids Map

My first hike! Uphill one way, a nice bench for a break lol. Downhill on the way back. Took us 2 hours at a very leisurely pace. Our dog loved it!

Nice short hike, great for the kids!

Easy hike with moderate elevation. Great views and good walk. conditions were great

Nice little trail. Got off trail a couple of times, but it is marked pretty well so just watch for those signs. Accidentally did counter clockwise, and as people have said it is definitely more of a challenge. Other than that it wasn’t too bad for ice, and there isn’t too much snow. The view point was meh, but there was a better viewpoint not too far from the marked one. It only took a couple hours to complete but was definitely a nice easy hike.

As a side note, someone’s car did get broken into in the parking lot while we were there. So just make sure that there are no valuables left in the vehicle at this location, or that they are hidden well.

Great for a quick little trip out of the city. Easy for kids

My first ever hike. Amazing view from the top

Easy beginner hike. Gorgeous views.

Easy hike for a family! It was a touch icy in spots throughout . Kids had fun sliding on the icy hill parts while we skirted in the brush to stay upright. But lots of dry/bare spots too!

Quiet and pretty trail, nobody else here when I visited. Good for a quick stroll.

Great trails, well marked. Icy in spots.

Good hike! My day was chilly with hoarfrost so no view for us. Guess I’ll hafts go back

Well maintained. Easy access from Calgary.
Suitable for kids, dogs of all type and people of all skill levels.
The views are great but nothing extraordinary. I recommend for people who are looking for something easy.

As of today there wasn’t much snow, some slippery spots on the incline and declines. Good hike for beginners or young kids as it’s mostly flat, but for the short inclines they are fairly steep! Didn’t see any wildlife but there were some smaller tracks, Beautiful views and the trail is one of the best marked ones we’ve seen. Would recommend to anyone looking for an easier/shorter outing

Great hike, views are awesome took some time at the top to find the paintings but worth it.

Very nice, relaxing hike with a few steeper inclines but nothing too bad. We went counterclockwise and the end was a steep downhill incline, so for a bit more of a challenge one could go clockwise.

I think I’d only recommend this trail if you’re new to the area and need something to get you acclimated to the inclines and altitude. It’s not difficult by any means, but does include a bit of elevation gain. On either side you’ll have good views of Ha Ling and EEOR (which are much better hikes), and you’ll get a satisfying view of the waterfall the lakes are feeding as you climb. The true beauty of this hike is the crystal clear lakes.

Pushing past the lakes will lead you to petroglyphs and the reservoir above, which is pretty in its own right, giving you a good view of the mountains beyond. Occasionally I have seen mountain goats/sheep? near the top of the trail, and extremely friendly chipmunks. There are a few popular rock climbing sections as well that are accessed via this hike. Altogether, some nice views, although not the best by any means.

Don’t expect those breathtaking summit views, but for its category, it is definitely a 5 star little hike. We did this trip as a family with little kids and grandma. Everyone enjoyed it a lot, really nice scenery with all those little waterfalls. Located so close to Cochrane, it’s a perfect quick getaway from our busy life especially for those who live in town. We will be back for sure to see the different seasons there.

For our first one in Alberta, the trail is great!

Not closed!

The tougher trail is closed but the main trail is not. Very enjoyable and the lakes at the top of the hike are work the price of admission (tired legs)!

As of December 18th there was very little ice on the water so you can see the gorgeous blue green colors. Trails were a little slippery but I managed it in sneakers.


Some of the parts of the trail were closed so it was up and down the same path to the mini lakes at top.

Easy, not views but mild for all skill levels, we did it counterclockwise to add a little challenge, so instead of tons of downhill we climbed them! kid friendly trail!

Wow! Amazing reward at the top!

We love this hike. We took family friends out for the afternoon and they thoroughly enjoyed it. We saw some deer running through the lower end as we hit the top of the hike. Beautiful scenery.

Beautiful winter hike. Easy trail was very easy. Probably good with a stroller.
More difficult was full of tree roots and rocks under the little snow. Closer to the top of more difficult trail you need crampons. It was pure ice due to the overflow.
From the lakes, the hike up the stairs has a nice lookout. At the very top you can cross the road for a nice mountain and lake view.
Outhouse on site.

Went on Nov 12th. Sunny. Temp -5. Trail spilt into more difficult and east. More difficult has lots of frozen icy surface which are extramely spiliry. lots of beautiful forest view and sunny mountain view. Trail beyond water fall is covered in frozen ice. Spikes are recommended for that part of the trail.
Grassi lakes at the end of the trail is very beautiful and not frozen so you still see the beautiful color of the water.
I would go back in summer again.

Enjoyable easy hike :)
Went 3 weeks a go a bit slippery in some spots but other then that a good fun hike.
