The lakes at the end of the trail are absolutely beautiful. This is a short, well marked and very popular hike. It is a mild uphill climb on the way there. Worth checking out!

Great for kids. Harder way up was closed this early in the season but was still a good day. Hiked with 4,9,10 year olds and they all enjoyed it.

Amazing views of the lake!

beautiful easy trail and colorful lake

Closed for construction now. Was very busy on weekends when it was open. I saw lots of tourists hiking this trail in sandals or ballet flats with purses- would definitely encourage rocking a pair of runners at the very least if you’re planning this hike! It’s a bit of a scramble at the top but the views are worth it.

Wonderful and easy trail 6m wide under high trees. 170 elevation change all time ascending. summit with twin emerald lakes so unreal colours

This trail is more of a nice walk with a nice reward and view at the end. This time of year only the upper trail is open and it’s fairly busy but still manageable. I did it with my dog yesterday and we both enjoyed it. I would recommend this spot.

Great hike to do with kids. The lakes are gorgeous. A part of the loop (the hardest) was closed, but still a very beautiful walk.

Accidently went off path and scrambled all the way to the top. Very crowded and off leesh dogs (no no). But 360 views and rewarding when I went summer 2018.

Difficult level is high, but damn was this good.

lovely easy and quick hike. good idea to start early as it gets extremely busy.

Will go again because we weren’t able to complete the whole hike as one trail was closed

Has icy patches and mud but worth it at the top. Deffinetly check out both lakes as they are beautiful!! Easy quick hike. Difficult trail is closed.

Did this summit at the end of January, there wasn’t much snow along the trail at all. Winds were relentless at the top and I didn’t get to spend much time up there, the north facing view was incredible.

tame, easy beginner trail. great place to start

Easy trail for afternoon hike. Trail was packed down. Did the trial midday and got slushy as the day went on.

The more difficult trail is not open right now but the “easy” trail is. The trail was snow packed and a little bit icy in parts, and a bit mushy (snow/mud) in other parts. Yesterday was my first solo hike but I definitely wasn’t alone as there were lots of other people on the trail. Lots to explore up at the lakes and you can find seclusion to enjoy the peace of the nature and mountains

Some beautiful views but a little slippery coming back with hard packed snow. Lower trail is closed as it is too icy.

Easy hike with a beautiful view at the top. Great for the 11 year old beginner with us. We wore crampons, it helped but not entirely necessary.

It was a great hike for myself, two dogs and husband who is recovering from an injury. Great hike if you're looking for something easy but that will still get your heart pumping. The trail was snow packed so no need for spikes or snowshoes.

I enjoyed this gentle uphill hike from the parking lot to a nice lookout, and return back downhill. The path was wide and packed snow, no need for spikes. Took me 45 mins at a steady but relaxed walk.

This is a great hike to kill an hour or so. The views from the top over looking Canmore and looking up at Rundle and Ha Ling are great. Perfect hike for beginners or anyone looking to get their heart beat up.
We did it in the winter. The snow was packed down nicely and there was no need for spikes.
