Went there today and the top is still frozen with ice. Hiking up is difficult as it is so steep, going down is just as hard.

Amazing views, pictures could never do it justice.

Very busy. Not really a true hike since they are paved but still a very pretty walk with lots of great views.

Nice short hike. The path is still snow-covered.

19th may : road to Moraine Lake closed. Departure of the trail since Louise lake.

No snow no mud. The lookout was beautiful. It was relatively an easy.

First time on Tunnel, great little hike! Dry and busy.

Nice hike

Took our 10 month old up in the pack and it was the perfect trail for that. Not overly exerting and great views. Very accessible and well maintained trails.

First time hiking tunnel mountain. It was a Friday evening at 6:30, the sky was clear and very little breeze with a temp of about 12c. It was prefect. Looked out to the east at the mountain range, Bow river and Lake Loiuse golf course. It was less than a hour with quick breaks. There’s a sitting area with two chairs but go further to the rock slab. Beautiful view. Had a nice snack and others took our group picture. The walk down took 25 minutes. Prefect hike.

Corey pass had some pretty awesome views all the way up the hike but it was disappointing to me in several areas. For starters I hiked more than halfway crossing many “patches” of snow on the cliff sides. Ultimately I was forced to turn around due to the trail on the cliff side and the surrounding areas being completely covered in snow (could no longer see the trail). I don’t know how people are saying they hiked this a month or two weeks ago because it’s just not possible. Going down was a difficult challenge as well because the trail is not well maintained and you can’t walk down without slipping. Very loose gravel causing a very uncomfortable 4.5 miles down. Still happy I went just didn’t meet my expectations.

Walked this trail several times in different seasons. Last time the lake was frozen.
Always a beautiful walk!

Great place to go for a few hours. Nothing overly difficult. Very busy most days

The path is paved so I can't call it a hike.
However, for visiting friends or those not wanting something strenuous it is a nice walk to the falls.
However, if you want to skip the crowds, go up to the Ink Pots.

One of the most gorgeous hikes in this area, along with Lake Agnes - Tea House Hike.

A really good beginner to moderate hike

5/17 would recommend crampons. Great hike!

This hike was the longest I’ve been on so far but completely worth it. My 4 and 6 yr old also did this hike with me as well as our dog. It slowed us down a big but it’s so worth it! Once you reach the top you can keep going down another path and climb onto and behind a water fall!

Amazing canyon to hike through. The mountains, falls and ink pots are all must sees. Not too difficult and the trail is well maintained. Bring plenty of water and trail snacks. Enjoy the beauty within these Northern Rockies!

Very easy hike on a nice, well maintained trail. Lake Louise is absolutely phenomenal with epic views of the mountains surrounding.

Awesome, I do it all the time

Finally got to do this one. Nice little hike very accessible and trail is in great condition. Views can't be beat 2 hrs well spend.

States on the board an hour walk. It took us 20 mins. It’s a nice river side walk. Very easy!

We did the 30km walk along the Ghost lakes/ Devils gap which is worth the difficult drive in across the Ghost river bed a road loop north to the berm in the middle and onto the washout river bed. I think most people will want find the parking area and walk across the river. Awesome and enjoyable walk.

une montée régulière mais un peu platte , c'est très large comme trail et très très passant . mais la vue en haut est incroyable. Juste pour ça ça vaut le déplacement.

enjoyed this hike and views a year ago with friends.

Went up yesterday (mid May) and the last kilometre or so, right when you reach the switchbacks at the top is covered in heavy snow (waist deep in some places). Slippery, dense snow, too, despite the heavy sun. Bring spikes and poles and be prepared. I did OK with just Yaktrax, but I'm glad I wasn't just in boots.

Keep an eye out for fossilized worms and strange sea life on the rock faces as you ascend! I also saw a beaver (in the river before the ascent starts) hoary marmots, and mule deer.

Great hike with the family!
