Loved it! We just did it this last may long weekend and it was awesome! Very easy trail to follow and an amazing view. Only downside was when we went, some snow was starting to melt so we were stomping through some mud and it was quite slippery! But over all, it was a lot of fun!

Great hike. Beautiful views.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Easy hike for families with great views and scenery. Make sure you go down the canyon to the water and get a family photo! Well worth the stop. Not a lot of people in May.

Beautiful in the winter and will be visiting again in the summer
Great quicl hike to hit.

This is a simple trail and the views are phenomenal! There’s the glaciers, mountains, river and if you’re lucky...a heard of mountain sheep to walk past! The sheep are really tame so there’s nothing to worry about. They were curious about my pup, but my pup isn’t phased by wildlife so it was fine. This trail is just a fun way to take a break from the more challenging hikes while still having gorgeous views. You just want to get there early though to avoid the crowds!

Great trail for fat tire biking and trail running

Touristy & underwhelming.

Beautiful clear lakes, took a swim in the ice cold water

This is a great walk. Would rate as easy. Lots of birds. Nice scenery.

Great RC trail!

excellent photo spot with fantastic views

Not a bad hike it was all snow when we did it so that made it harder, the last steep bit to the top hasn't had much traffic so no real defined trail through the snow. Pretty good view from the summit, we did it up and down in 2.5hrs.

Great hike! Hiking poles are essential because on the day we went there was snow all the way up so it was pretty slippery! The hiking starts near the entrance to the hot tubs which are a great way to relax afterwards

Took just under 4 hours for the round trip yesterday including spending time to enjoy the view at the top and taking photos. The trail was covered with snow and slush, which probably made it a lot more difficult than it actually is. I found the hike pretty hard as I was slipping and sliding the whole way up and back down. But the view was amazing and well worth it, even in the slippery condition. Definitely my favourite part of Jasper!

Did this trail today and like that guy said, it was covered in snow. Although probably the first third of the trail has melted and become slushy, it made the beginning of the hike much more difficult. The entire hike was beautiful though with all the yellowing leaves and snow, as well as the views along the way! Top is quite steep, but only for a short part! Definitely a must do!

it was covered in snow when we were there, which can make it far more difficult than I think it actually is, and I didn't have proper footwear. in spite of that the trail is beautiful, sporting some incredible vistas on the way up. Even though the peak is a challenge to reach, the view is breathtaking and absolutely worth the challenge.

really enjoyed this hike. had to break trail to push to the summit but we'll worth it. also any hike that has a hot pool at the base of it is all that much better

We do this hike at least once a year. It's a beautiful hike to share with family out visiting. The snow was flying when we got near the top, eliminating the endless peeks and scenery but still worth the hike. Bust trail as always. Lots of friendly hellos from all around the world on this one. :)

Beautiful fairly easy hike to multiple viewpoints.
