HikingMuddy

July 9, Thursday Due to the wet weather of late this trail is muddy. You may wish to give it a few days of dry weather, before doing it.

We walked down to the canyon to stretch our legs on a long drive and enjoy the view. Really easy and walk - well worth they stop. The canyon is beautifully carved out and standing over it on the walking bridge is great! Line up another hike if you make the trip, this ones quick.

Very easy short hime to the Bridge. The way the water has carved out the Canyon is amazing. Definitely worth an hour of your time

Great hike, and lots of folks on this trail. Spent a couple nights out here in early July. Lots of snow once you get into skoki valley but passable because the snow is hard. Lots of the scrambles in the area are not recommended because of waste deep and melting snow on the routes to the summits.

Hiked July 27. Muddy! Easy walk through beautiful forest. Many people at the top. Hard to find good place for dog to swim.

Good for a rainy day. Trail was muddy but all in all very well maintained. Good one to bring the pup if you have one. View of the lake is pretty, but is a little obscured. Not many good places to sit at the end - shore is almost all boulders. Washroom at the trailhead were convenient.

My hubby and I went today and arrived at about 9am. We were the only ones there. The path was quite slippery and muddy so we only hiked to the rocky part of the canyon. What a view. The rush of thr water is amazing! Be very careful if you decide to go on the rocks. As mentioned, quite slippery! The hike back to the parkinb lot is a little tough as it is all uphill but just have to pace yourself. Lots of mosquitos FYI so bug spray is definately needed.

Perfect for a rainy day hike. The trail is rated as moderate but I'd say it was easy. Wide and well maintained trail, easy to follow, not steep, etc. Great day to go as I guess the rain scared the crowds away! The rocks at the end are slippery when raining so be cautious in the wet. Beautiful lake, beautiful walk, beautiful day even in the rain.

Since it rained most of the day the day before there were puddles here and there but no one on the trail. Some small creeks crossing on your bike but great conditions.

Nice trail to start. Didn’t make it too far because the mosquitoes were brutal! Will try again another day when it’s sunnier and we can wear big spray.

I have been on this trail before and it was magnificent! I just attempted to go threw Skoki Mountain Approach yesterday and you CANNOT GET THREW! There is way too much snow (up to waist deep) and streams which have covered the path. It is not passible at the waterfall at all. I wouldn't go on this part of the trail until late July.

Absolutely loved the trail! It was steep on cross-country skis in some sections. Pay attention to the signs when it says caution steep hill! We went from goat creek parking lot to the fairmont hotel in Banff and had someone pick us up. Beautiful day!

Great trail with a mix of everything. Would Consider this more of a bike trail then a hike trail. We usually do it on bikes and start from Ha Long parking lot. And bike 20 k to Banff for lunch.

about 20-30% of the trail is muddy sections and areas where water flows across. nice trail, the lake is beautiful, mostly big rocks at the bank and you have to scramble over them to find a flat one to sit on. bugs weren't bad. There is a restroom in the parking area.

Great trail. There were some muddy and wet spots all along the trail, but it was easy and fun to pick our way around the wettest bits. Took us 1-1/2 hours to reach the lake and 1 hour and 20 minutes to walk back to the parking lot. Lake is peaceful and view of surrounding mountains beautiful. We only spent 15 minutes at the lake before heading back. Most memorable part of the walk was the bear dining on dandelions at the parking lot when we finished the hike. Enjoy!

Not a bad trail. We did last week on a Friday. Not too many people which is always great. Brought bear spray due to one of the comments on here but no bears around that we saw. Trail is pretty flat but very muddy, especially at the end. We even saw some frogs on the path. You’re in forest the whole way, nice views of boom lake at the end. Took us about four hours but one whole hour spent at lake so 3 hiking.

Great hike for summer or winter, be sure to bring snowshoes or at least cleats if packed down. Friendly grey jays at the lake, so be sure to keep your lunch tucked away, they will help themselves to your snacks! Took a few hours, but a very easy stroll type of hike (more of a forest walk really). Would love to try getting there for a sunrise and photograph the lake really early.

The road is fairly narrow, with variable shoulder and some blind curves. We biked it when it was closed to cars, so it was very nice to not to have to worry about getting run over. It would be a lot less pleasant when there was heavy traffic. It climbs consistently to the shoulder and then drops down a fair way to the lake - so save some climbing energy for the return trip. This road becomes a popular and classic ski in the winter (more stars)

I did this trail from Canmore to Banff. I parked my truck at the Canmore Nordic Center, climbed the hill to the Goat Creek trailhead, pedalled to Banff and then back to Canmore on the legacy trail. The trail was in great condition overall. 10/10 would recommend for an easy-moderate ride to fill your morning/afternoon.
