The road to it was challenging. Rough and hard on your vehicle. Don’t do it in a sedan!!!
However, once there, it was a nice , easy hike with modest elevation gain. Will backpack there to spend a few night next time. The lake is beautiful!

Great hike. Beautiful views.

Amazing trail with great views. The road up is closed however for Summer 2018. So if you plan on doing this hike plan on hiking the 12 kilometers up the road to the Edith Cavell parking lot just to get to the trailhead. We went this May long weekend 2018 intending to do the hike but were turned away because the roads closed. Luckily there's lots of other hikes in Jasper

Easy hike for mostly everyone with spectacular views. Also a great hike in the winter months when you can explore the falls when frozen!

It's such an amazing hike!!! Mid May and there was a lot of snow from the km 4 until the 5.5. More people than expected was hiking the trail. When we hit the deep snow we thought about turning back, but we saw some people pushing hard so we kept going, and it was totally worth it. The snow made it harder, but better of a challenge. Be ready to get wet and enjoy the amazing views :).

Mid May and there still was a lot of snow in the trail. It's doable, I would recommend to have waterproof pants. We couldn't reach the summit because of the snow, but the views were amazing.

Busy until the 4th bridge but good afterwards, it was fun, our 5yo walked mo problem

Difficult to find the trailhead in the springtime/ when waters at the base are higher. Moderate to the treeline then difficult to the top.

Amazing hike, but lots of mosquitoes, i would 110% recommend bringing a full body bug suit if you're tackling this one.

I have done this trail 3 times now in different seasons and weather !! Winter, spring and in the high heat of summer and it’s been beautiful every time.
It’s very icy in the winter and you can walk the ice along the falls and in the summer it’s a beautiful teal water and a nice hot hike to get your sweating as the trail is up and down hills the whole time. Easily about 1 hr 45 to 2 hrs.
Fave hike and a must do !!

First time was on May 1 2018 and it was a great time. Started the day with overcast but by noon it was 20c and sunny.
Will definitely be back soon.

We did this hike in early May and it was COVERED in snow. The first 2/3 were manageable but it was waist-deep for the last 1/3 with no other tracks to follow. It made for a lot of falling and funny moments but was very slow going (about 6 hours hike time - at least double what it would normally take).

Everyone ahead of us turned around when the snow got too deep but I’m glad we pushed through it. The views were worth it! I’m looking forward to trying it again in the summer or fall.

If you’re doing this hike in spring, bring snowshoes!

Amazing views, steep in a couple spots but overall very easy trail, lots of good spots to get some amazing shots of the turquoise blue lakes. 100% worth it to take 2 hours out of your day for.

Amazing hike, great conditions, not to busy on may 6th. Warm 24 degrees. Took our time stopped lots for a lot of amazing photos. Worth the hike 100% would do over and over again.

Hiked April 23rd 2018. Not recommended at this time of year by many locals without proper equipment for avalanche preparation and knowledge of the trail. We didn’t know that until after. After the fork in the road all signage was still buried under the snow meaning the trail wasn’t obvious. We managed to climb through knee deep sometimes hip deep snow assumedly almost to the peak in approximately 2:30-3:00 hours considering the trail conditions. We were unable to complete the loop as we could no longer find trail indicators. That being said the views from the top were fantastic!

Love this hike. It’s a good mix of difficult steep sections followed by a bit of a break as it flattens out each time you reach a lake. The lakes and waterfalls are beautiful and this hike was not very crowded for us, even on a sunny summers day. Be warned that the drive in is a bit on the wild side- low-riding cars may not make it at all and a 4x4 of some sort is probably best (you probably CAN make it in your average sedan, but you’ll have to take it really slow).

One of my favourite hikes in Jasper National Park. Great short hike (we spent somewhere around 3 or 4 hours round trip with plenty of time just sitting at the summit) with the most fantastic 360 degree viewpoint at the summit, and a hot spring waiting for you at the base when you finish.

First hike in the mountains I ever did and still a soft spot in my heart. Sometimes gets crowded with tourists but a good challenging moderate hike with amazing views from the top.

Tough hike, beautiful view, a little scary right at the top on a windy day though with a steep drop off to the other side! (I may have made it to the summit at the wrong spot however. Wasn’t using this app, just a vague description we found online).

Hiked up on April 25 conditions are interesting to say the least. Snow and ice throughout trail would wait another month before doing it to make sure the snow is gone. Have done the hike during October and it was amazing. Worth it for the views

We do this hike a couple times each winter and summer - one of the smaller loops in the winter. When there is a good covering we take the kids in a sled but have to carry them and the sled for lots of the sections - good workout. Beautiful and always a hit with our kids (3 & 6)

This was a beautiful trail and offered plenty of access to water sources. Overnighting at Amethyst is a must if you’re doing this trail! If I were to do it again I would make a longer trip out of it by overnighting a few nights using Amethyst as a base camp and doing some exploring in the area.

One of my favorites. Good mix of terrain and always love trails with waterfalls. Lots of places to take in the view and do some rock hopping. Never made it to the top of the large fall because I’ve gotten off to a late start (all 3 times)! One of these days!

Enjoyed this trail as a kid and again as an adult. Views are fantastic at the top. I prefer to hike this trail when it is on the cooler side. Hot summer days can be brutal.

Challenging but amazing hike! Trail is a bit difficult to follow once you get off the bike. Be prepared to scramble/boulder to get to the summit. Lots of fun!

Nice hike that was doable in the winter conditions early April. Some deep patches of snow, Wabasso lake was still totally frozen April 8, walked out to the island.
