Hiking

Did it November 21st. We used microspikes for the first part of the trail and had to use snowshoes on the second half of the trail. At the amphitheatre, snowshoes are definitely not an option! Very nice trail but we expected to see the peak and the views on the lake. Unfortunetaly, the trail (we followed the Alltrail map) does not go all the way to the peak where you see viewpoints of the lake. I am not sure either it is possible to reach this point in that time of the year!

Tough little hike with great views. Came across a bear on the trail, but he paid me no mind. I attempted to keep going up the summit but had to turn around. I made a video on YouTube of the hike, just search Maps With No Roads on YouTube if you want a look at what the trail is like.

Trail mostly just along the highway. Not good for dogs. No vistas.

HikingGreat!

It was definitely a great climb. Very easy. Plenty of foot traffic up and down. Great views. But when you get to the top it’s the most amazing 360 view of all the other mountains that surround.

Nice off season walk when some of the more challenging trails are out of reach. Very limited views. Trail is in great shape. Highly recommend spikes!!

Hiking

We did this hike starting from . downtown. Total distance was 10.9k. There was more elevation changes than I thought from reading other review. From the trail head at Surprise Corner, you basically go down to the river, and then back up again to see the hoodoos. That climb up to the hoodoos was a good heart pumper for us, but worth doing. Round trip from town was 3 hours.. as someone else mentioned, the hoodoos are kind of far away to see well,, but the overall views are fantastic.

This hike was alright. It had a couple nice viewpoints along the trail, but was otherwise in the trees. The trail follows spray river, and has some areas of great incline but it otherwise pretty flat. There is some snow and ice near the turn around point of the loop, but can easily be done without cleats. The trailhead was difficult to find (had to walk across part of a golf course to find it), but it is right in the town of banff. There are many hikes in banff that I would recommend before this which have better views, but if you have 4 hours to kill, then go for this hike.

Empty, brought our dog on-leash. Ground a bit frozen, some places are icy but can be done without spikes.

Hiking

The conditions are a little bit slippery and icy right now. This was my first time on the trail, it was a little bit underwhelming. Not very many nice views of Banff or mountains, mostly below the tree line. Still nice to be out in nature. Be careful of slopping and falling. Poles and spikes recommended

Hiking

So let me start off by saying, we didn’t know until AFTER the hike that this is a known cougar habitat! About 1km in we ran into some big paw prints. We’re not zoologists but it looked like a pretty big cat. With that out of the way, the hike was great. Not TOO challenging and definitely worth the effort. We were pretty happy to check it out with the snow on the ground because the last 1/4 of the hike became a winter wonderland. If you’re comparing this to some of the smaller hikes nearby such as the Tunnel Mountain Hoodoos or Johnson lake, I’d rate this as moderate. But if you’re comparing it to something more similar like Cory Pass / Mount Edith, I’d rate this hike as easy compared to those.

Hiking

Great family friendly hike. Great views of the mountains and relatively easy. If you’re looking for a nice way to spend a couple hours and not looking to go too far from the city center, this is a great hike. Keep in mind that there are a LOT of interconnecting trails, so veering off track is pretty easy, so if you’re looking to do the trail as is, do your best to keep to the left

Hiked it yesterday. Had regular hiking boots on and didn’t use crampons, some spots could of been better with them but overall a nice hike.

We chose this easy trail because there might be snow. There was but not a lot. Good winter shoes was useful on the parts where there was hardened snow. Got to see the Bow River. We didn't see the Bow Falls. Missed it. Too bad.

Neat little 2 hour hike to do if you have an afternoon to kill in Banff. It was a relatively warm day, but on colder days crampons would be necessary

Easy trail, was fairly warm so the snow was pretty easy to trek up. I would imagine if it were cold you would want to utilize crampons.
