Did this in December. It is really slippery and icy, but worth it.

Did this hike a couple years ago and it was great

Hiked it in the beginning of November. There is a bunch of snow, but it was well accessible in without any special equipment though. Frozen lakes and waterfall were amazing. A quite short easy/ moderate hike (if you choose the more difficult path).

Did this in November in snow. Steep exhausting climbing up was rewarded by incredible amazing view on Canmore and surrounding peaks. Cold and windy up there and quite bussy. Awesome! Do not forget hiking poles and crampons. It will ne much easier.

I did this in July and highly recommend if you are looking for alternative to the more catered/foot trafficy trails out of Banff. This is only 3.6 mile but the elevation gain is serious. The scenery is great the entire hike, with some changes in the vegetation as you go. I recommend making it all the way to the peak for the view of Canmore in the valley. I did this solo and will definitely do it again when I have the chance to bring someone along with me

We did this trail on an afternoon in late October.
I would definitely recommend taking the more difficult trail on your way up if you're capable, and then taking the easier trail down. The easier trail is a bit boring, whereas the more difficult trail leads to a gorgeous view of a waterfall. However, if you take the more difficult route I'd definitely rate this hike as moderate rather than easy! Took us under 1.5 hours to do the whole thing, taking the more difficult route up and the easier one down. The lakes are super pretty and there are some great views on your way up.

Stunning, hard steady climb. Recommend cleats and sticks. Worth the effort

Awesome hike! Even in lots of snow, it’s short and like a winter wonderland back there! Also the lakes aren’t quite frozen yet!! Would 100% recommend and do again!
