TAKE BUG SPRAY!!! I ended up with over 100 bites but good trail so it was worth it. In the tree line most of the way but the views at the top are amazing. Scramble across big boulders half way up adds some fun and breaks up the hike. Took us just under 3 hours to the top. Quiet trail, only saw a handful of people.

This trail almost took me to my limits ... it took us 3.5 hours to the "summit" or the weather station. The path itself is not particularly beautiful, it goes through the forest for a long time, and also pretty well uphill from the beginning. The turnoff we would definitely have missed if I had not downloaded the way down. From the river crossing the way is relatively difficult to find. My tip: pay attention to the little cairns who show the way (thanks to the one who made this effort !!!) The last section is awesome, very exhausting. It goes straight uphill, over a flagstone field. Absolutely endless. Physically and mentally very exhausting, because you are progressing very hard, and you can not really see a goal. (Here, too, the recurrent Steinmännchen are a great help and motivation!) If you then arrived at the top, you will definitely blow away from the 360 degree view! That really makes it worth the effort! Pack mosquito spray with you!

I ended up hiking Portal to Maccarib (2 nights) then back out from August 16-19th. The hike in general is easy. The hike in was fine, although muddy from Portal to Maccarib due to the horses that tear up the trail. The sites at Maccarib are clustered very close and there are two (3 and 5) which are downhill and left their campers sleeping in a puddle of water. The bugs weren't as severe as everyone has said, but be prepared with spray and a net. Our final night we had a downpour which meant the trails from Maccarib to the trailhead were either washed out or severely muddy. Come with gators. I had a pair yet still left with soaked boots and pants The views are gorgeous and the trail is definitely worthwhile.

Better than Johnston Canyon but gets crowded. Start at fifth bridge and make your way to first bridge. We took the upper route on the way back which wasn’t crowded at all and had nice views.

Stunning. Fabulous. The lake with glacier and chunks of ice was simply beauty beyond words. Probably the most stunning lake I’ve ever seen. Some meadows with lovely flowers in bloom. The walk to the top was steep, but a great view. Take several layers of clothing - huge temperature variations (very cold at the top with the wind, despite it being a warm, sunny day). Not to be missed (and now the road to this walk is paved too). Gets busy by noon, so go early if you want to avoid lots of people.

Great trail to hike, but if it’s your first time scrambling and don’t fully know what it is. You should omit the last portion of this trail, I made the mistake and almost fell down it.

small path in the woods, provide anti mosquito spray. really beautiful hike !!

My friend and I hiked up to the lake and stayed two nights. It was an easy but muddy and rooty trail past summit lake, many bear tracks and bear scat on the trail coming from Summit lake to Beaver. The hike was almost 26 k and eight hours in and out for us. On the second day we decided to venture off and hike past the warden cabin toward Rocky River. As advertised the trail is no longer maintained by parks Canada and has begun to grow in with blowdowns. We didn't get very far and we found that one of the wooden bridges across the river had washed out. Rather than getting wet we tried to find an alternative trail but muskeg bogs and water ended our adventure. Lots of bear scat present on trail. This is a very beautiful lake I would do it again in a heartbeat. Lots of places to obtain water, its a decent campground, and has one of those horrible green Johnny on the spots for your service..Be bear aware on the trail and well as in camp with food storage. Bring extra dry socks and alternative shoes / boots for camp life.

Nice lakes, perfect hike for families!

Did the Tonquin valley loop from Portal to Astoria Aug. 8-12. Recorded on 1st day only as to preserve phone battery. Lots of water available on this trail easy access to creeks, but should have been prepared with more water on the first day. Mud and mosquitoes in abundance. Trail to Surprise very boggy but worth staying to hear glaciers in the night. Bring gaiters and mosquito nets and spray! Beautiful clear views of mountains on all sides. I would venture down closer to the lakes next time! Would definitely do this hike again!

People saying it's easy are likely more in shape than we were but they're right about the views. Worth the effort to make it to the peak. we were worried about whether we had enough time to get back before dark (started at 3pm) so we took the steep route to the summit and walked up to the peak from there. all around, a four hour trip. we were driving down the mountain at 7:15 ish

Beautiful trail and friendly people, completed in 7 hours running. Weather can change in a heartbeat so make sure you bring the appropriate outerwear. Parks Canada says 41/42kms, however, AllTrails says 38.1kms, which is what our gps watches got.

Great beginner hike and a must see for everyone visiting the park!

Pretty okay hike. Little bit crowded though.

Flat boring trail through the woods. Lake is nice but nothing special. Go early in the morning to see moose otherwise it'll be a total zoo.

Moderate loop trail with some uphill. I've seen old people with canes climb it just fine. Take your time and enjoy the meadows up top but make plenty of noise since this is grizzly habitat. If you're feeling fit climb Opal peak that overlooks the meadow. It's a straightforward plod with a wicked scree ski back down.

Chill hike suitable for any able-bodied party. Maybe the busiest in the park but for good reason. Views are impressive and you can go for a dip in the springs after. Lots of trail-braiding from high usage so try to stay on the main path.

One of the best hikes in the Rockies or anywhere. If you're moderately fit it's best done over 2 days, staying at curator. It can get buggy in July but nowhere near Tonquin-buggy, i.e. you'll be fine with a little deet. Views from the Notch will desensitize you to natural beauty for years to come. The main ranges stretch out to the continental divide in front and the little arctic poppies cling to the windswept scree on the ridges. We combined it with an ascent of Tekarra for a gruelling second day. Highly recommended detour for fit parties.

Majestic views of Mt. Brussels approaching the Headwall. Fryatt lake is glorious too. It's no Tonquin or Skyline but still a worthwhile backpacking spot especially if you're living it up at the ACC hut.

Good spot for moose. Snow free early in the season. Lots of hiking on flat ground through the trees. A few lakes along the way with beautiful views up at the peaks. Jacques lake is a peaceful majestic place, try your luck fishing.

Trailhead blocked by construction right now. Decent, easy scramble. Views ok. Nothing technical. 4-5 hour return.

Good value for effort. Views of the Angel and Cavell glacier that will burn lowlanders' corneas for the price of a relaxed and moderately graded stroll. The meadows are lovely in Late July and scan the moraine for pikas and marmots en route.

A relaxed, flat, half-day trail. The kind of trail you'd take your parents or kids on. Charming but sedate views over the Athabasca, a bit of burned forest, and the ruins of an old cabin. An early morning hike may yield some woodsy wildlife and the bog loop is a good spot for flowers.
