Great hike. Easy to do, fun to explore. Great pay off. I definitely suggest continuing past the first falls. You can go in behind the upper falls and it has spectacular views. Not sure if there is a direct path but we wound up doing some unintentional rock climbing to get up there. Well worth it.

Starts out fairly easy but certainly ramps up in difficulty as you turn to go up the hill. Definitely a little challenging.

Very easy walk. Quite short. Pretty falls at the end.

Such an incredible hike! The first two hours to Lillian lake is in the trees and very beautiful. Shortly after you start your ascend after Lillian lake towards Galatea you break out of the trees and suddenly you’re on top of the world. Probably one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been. We clocked it at 16.4 km to get to Galatea Lake and back. Took us 5 hrs and we had a good lunch break taking in the incredible views at Galatea.
Can’t wait to go back in the summer and camp and try the summit!

A little bit challenging but very nice hike. There was snow on the trail and moody at some elevations so you have to walk carrefully.
We had fog at the first lake so we could not see much... but it's the game

September 15,2018 - Always a beautiful hike. There was snow on the trail at some elevations and trail was a bit muddy at some points. Traction was good for the most part though. We did not need the microspikes, but always a good idea to have them in these conditions. Heard lots of rock fall while at the upper lake. Careful if heading up the scree slopes to the cliff edge.

A nice easy stroll. Great view of the valley.

Nice, moderate hike. Not too busy during July! Worth a day trip to Peter Lougheed- you will more than likely see a mountain goat or two! Only complaint is that it wasn’t longer. This hike could easily be tacked on to another day hike while in the park.

Very easy hike- great for a family with small kids!

Missed the turn off that heads up the hill so spent a lot of time bushwhacking. Great views but footing coming down was loose and slippery and very steep. Would not recommend it for children or those prone to vertigo. You need to be in pretty good physical shape. Fun if you’re comfortable with a challenge.

This is on my list of hikes to repeat

Such a beautiful hike! Not too hard to get up and such rewarding scenery. It was quite chilly and windy even in the middle of summer so bring a jacket in case. I will definitely be going back on this hike <3

beautiful trails! go the extra hike to the upper falls and explore! its much prettier up there and way less busy :)

Gorgeous! Colours are starting to change. Lots of people out yesterday. Short hike with amazing views. Steep ascend. Easy if fit but will still wind you. Take your time and enjoy. It’s short and spectacular!

Great short hike with the first km a steady slope but doable for most levels. Don’t rush it to the top as it is a fairly quick hike. Take a couple of rests and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way. Highly recommend it in early fall as you can see a celebration of colors! At the end of the rocky path (after the second mini-waterfall) there is a very small remainder of a glacier which is nice to see.

Short, but has great views! Definitely worth the hour and a bit to do! If I had enough time I would have sat and ate lunch while taking in the views. I started hiking at about 8:50am, not many people to run into at this time, then by the time we started heading back the people started coming.

Great for meditation

Great hike. It really had everything. Great views all around the lake. Beautiful fall colours are out in bloom.

Long trail as some people said. Still nice and you can see beautiful scenery though.

The canyon is spectacular. Hiked in from the main parking lot and it took around 7 hours. A lot of elevation gain so I would suggest staying at the campground!

Easy walk- I wouldn’t even call it a hike. I think anyone could do it. Nice forest views and the waterfall at the end was pretty. It’s a trail I would go running on.

We did this hike yesterday on a whim and it didn’t disappoint! We planned on going just to Lillian Lake but decided to go the full way. It took us about 1hr 45 min to Lillian lake and about another 40 minutes to Galatea Lake on the top. The first leg was very nice. A Moderate climb in spots, forested, waterfalls. Moderate to high activity with other hikers. The last leg from Lillian Lake to Galatea Lake was the most challenging; moderate to steep elevation the whole way with an area of rocks before the lake. Best views were from this area! Going down was easy, all downhill. Incredible views of the mountains. Cool temps at the top. Bear advisory for the area so bring your bear spray. Would recommend! Took us ~5 hours total climbing + lunch + photos + descent.

Great hike. Peaceful at the top. I didn’t find it difficult to find the start of the trail. It’s just pass the bridge about 2-3 mins on right hand side.

Low key for great reward

This is a great short hike that awards beautiful views at the end.

on Ptarmigan Cirque

Great hike with beautiful views. Elevation gain is achievable for all levels. We followed Mt. Rae trail beyond the cirque up to the glacier. Very pretty but poles are recommended if you want to go past the original hike.

Excellent short hike for kids. Even saw a person with a motorized wheelchair at the lower falls. We decided to go the extra bit to the Upper Falls.
