Absolutely gorgeous, one of the best views I've ever seen. Very easy. The trailhead is at the north end of the first parking lot. It was not too busy since it is winter, but there were more people here than most prefer places (except Lake Louise).

Beautiful Hike! It is a relatively short hike however it is quite the incline the majority of the way and if you are used to living at sea level you might find breathing a little more difficult! All in all a great experience.

This trail is absolutely stunning. A must do if you can pop over to Yoho.

Nice easy trail! Was great but you only need to do it once in my opinion

Nice views around the middle and a little waterfall at the end. Not a long trail.

This was an awesome little trail! Just did it last week with our baby and the frozen falls at the end were pretty :)

I LOVED this hike today. It was stunning with all the snow, reminded me of a winter wonderland. Such a nice and easy hike. Highly recommended

We hiked to Arnica Lake today. The trail was hard packed snow cover the whole way. Great trail with a lot of great views along the way.

went on Nov 11th. Temp -5. Sunny. warms us up fast.
nice little loop around the Quarry lake.
very relaxing walk. nice view of mount lady mcdoanld. also good off leach dog park area. lake was slightly frozen. lots of cute dogs. took us 30 - 45 min with broken legs. not really broken but worn out after mt lady McDonald trail.
peeing in the lake is not at all recommended as it is a very popular community trail.

It looks photoshopped in real life.

A beautiful location for an off leash dog park! A short walk to the lake and a small loop around it.

Super fun and relatively easy hike! The view at the top is amazing. Can’t wait to snowshoe this trail once more snow comes along.

Great hike, short (relatively) but uphill all the way. There had been some fresh snow when we were there, so it wasn’t too slick, but I imagine you would want crampons on a typical winter day, especially if you’re making the push past Mirror Lake to the tea house. Lake Agnes was covered and it was super windy up there, so we didn’t stay long before heading back down. Awesome views of the beehives, the valley, and Lake Louise from spots on the trail!

Trail was ok. Very rocky. Starts out near the lefarge plant.. kinda interferes with the nice scenery part. Waterfall is small. Nothing in the cave. Meh

Steady incline to the tea house (closed). Lots of packed down snow so made it slippery in spots due to the incline. Some beautiful scenery along the way looking down on Lake Louise from the trail.

Closed for caribou conservation as of Nov 1... check Parks Canada trail reports for update as to when that area has the restrictions lifted! Beautiful views here though

Lots of snow up there yesterday. Micro-spikes/crampons were absolutely needed. Few people on the trail because of the snow.
Snow makes this more difficult to get up to the top. Both Mirror Lake and Lake Angus covered with snow.
I would like to do this again in the spring/summer.

Lake Agnes views are SPECTACULAR. Easy and heavily trafficked gravel trail with some wooden stairs. Bring cash for the tea house.

Hiked on 11.1.18
Microspikes and poles up to the tea house. Heard multiple avalanches..Attempted to walk to the lookout point but turned around about 3/4 of the way due to high snow, unsure footing and avalanche risk.
Overall excellent hike had the whole area to ourselves just be prepared.

Did this last year with snowshoes. Super fun!

she didn't have a lot of fun out there today cut the temperature was very mild and the trail was not at all icy.

Great little day hike. Took my dog with me and had no issues. Recommend traction cleats for sure. A few slippery spots had us sliding down on our butts. Will have to go back in the summer and check it out again when it’s not frozen over.

A quick and easy hike, definitely family and pet friendly. Do not go to Nakiska as they’ll advise you to turn around. From Mount Allan Drive, turn right on Stoney Trail which descends into the parking lot. Can start at the trailhead in the trees or take the clearing and then left to get to the falls. I recommend going to the upper falls after. Trail is well used and marked. Very scenic with several mini water falls.

great views and moderate difficulty

Amazing hike we took the snow shoe trail. Came down to face 3 moose but apart from that loved it

Easy walk with a small waterfall to view. Not to many people around either. Path is clearly marked and bathrooms at parking lot

Was a great little hike. Nice easy walk along the creek. Only disappointment was I couldn't as make it up the hoodoo to the cave to see the drawings. Both me and the pup kept sliding down as I am not a scrambler and there wasn't anything to grab onto to get up there. But will try again next time :)
