Beautiful hike all around, although it is a bit of a longer one depending on your pace so it's best to be prepared accordingly with enough food and water. The trail is in pretty good shape all the way around and it changes from mountains, to forest, to lake side. It can get pretty busy but I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to spend some time in the mountains.

To many spider Webs!

Beautiful views of Upper Kananaskis Lake to start and Rawson Lake did not disappoint at the end.

Great dog friendly trail! Fishing steep climb up to ridge... beautiful scenery!

Stunning. Fairly easy, but long......worth every step.

This trail is labelled as easy, but it's got some pretty challenging bits such as the chains over the cliff, after walking 10 km.

A hike that offers some beautiful views of the Kananaskis Valley. Short but steep and unrelenting, it is extremely rewarding once you reach the peak.

I would say this hike would be considered hard, just for the first half because there is a pretty decent incline but towards the middle it is much more level with an occasional climb. Right now a good portion of the hike trail is covered in very slippery ice, so I would recommend ice cleats or hiking poles. Altogether the top makes it worth it with a very peaceful frozen lake!

Absolutely stunning views! There were a surprising number of people on the trail for shoulder season. Lots of beautiful snow. I disagree with the rating of "hard". I found this to be a quick and easy hike. Park in upper kananaskis lake lot and walk around lake trail until you reach signs for Rawson Lake trail. Enjoy!

Pretty easy, well maintained, brought a couple of dogs. Only went an hour out and back. Good for families.
