Beautiful drive up to the parking lot and a paved walking trail the whole way.

Gorgeous views of the valley and the falls along the entire extent of the trail. Three separate water falls add to the beauty. Lots of water flow and snow above the tree line and Lots of snow still in the trees. It was warm enough we didn’t need spikes, but Could have used Gators!

Easy hike, beautiful walk up with amazing mountain and lake views. Dry day but glad we wore proper hiking boots as there are small streams across the trail and some mud. Hardly anyone there but the people we saw were lovely and everyone respected each other's space. Low crowds, easy walk, and high reward with the views? Yep, we'd do that again.

Beautiful trail. Ross lake is a great spot with some beautiful scenery as well. Perfect hike for a nice day.

Just went this week and there is still a ton of snow. Camped at Little Yoho. Still passable, but there were quite a few sections we were relying on one set of footprints and had to look around to reconnect to the main trail. The trail is extremely well maintained otherwise. Would definitely recommend waterproof boots, gaiters, and solid rain gear. Gorgeous views!

Completed the Iceline on June 7 there was still plenty of snow right after Stanley hut onward. I built a few rock carins to help mark out the trail, was a little difficult to navigate the trail as it was our first time up there. We seen a lot of avalanches coming down the faces so be aware of that movement. I recommend bringing gators and some base layers. Overall a wonderful hike!

Very pretty lake. Easy to moderate hike but fairly short! Took about an hour to get there (3 km one way).

Great trail. Went up the west and down the east. Couldn’t get to Opabin lake because it was too snowy and the path was too difficult to find. You see lots of foot prints and follow them but then you realize it’s not the path but another group that got off trail. Lots of marmots and amazing views. We saw at least 5 small avalanches as we were hiking. Amazing day.

Beautiful hike, really enjoyed it but would strongly recommend doing it later in the season. Trail is still snowed out, ranging from ankle to hip deep. There are a few points where you lose can lose the path easily. I can’t give any less than five stars because the views remained spectacular. FYI, we also saw a bear on the road when coming up.

Did it clockwise. Still lots of snow on the steep down hill leg. But gorgeous and definitely worth it.

2020-Jul-03 Westside of Emerald Lake much better then Eastside (very muddy, few views). Hike up to Basin had short steep section, then grade levelled off and continued through a lush forest. Few downed trees, easily navigated. Hiked up to the falls with microtraction. Lots of marmots and chipmunks came to check us out. Popular trail.

We (family of 4) decided to take this trail coming out of Little Yoho campground yesterday (July 2,2020). We expected snow but not that 85% of the trail is simply not visible due to snow! We saw no one for hours. Heard avalanches in the distance and avoided several cornices. Some views through the cloud and fog at times but not great. Still amazing but I’m not sure this trail should be open to the general public at this point! We followed an old set of tracks at times in the snow. Wet boots but smiling at the end. Give it a couple of weeks or more! I give it 5 stars as I’ve done it before and know how amazing the views can be!

Did this trail July 3rd. Detoured to hidden lakes on the way to Yoho lake, it was beautiful. Waterproof boots were definitely nice to have, trail was a bit muddy in some places and there’s a lot of snow at the top and but no special gear needed. We ended up taking a bit of a shortcut towards the end of the loop as we were following foot prints which we noticed were taking us off the trail on my offline map but we decided to roll with it. Lost the footprints and had to do a fair bit of bushwhacking but it wasn’t too bad and the views were incredible. Recording time included stops for pictures, water, bathroom break, a picnic and the detour to hidden lakes. The parking lot was almost full when we got there at 230 but I think most of them were sticking close to the main falls. We only passed about half a dozen people on the trail to Hidden and Yoho lakes, which was shocking for Canada day weekend. Definitely recommend!

Very fun hike! We followed it as the path shows, once you vere off from the lake the path is quiet. Saw no more than maybe 6 or 8 people after that until coming back to the lake. We went a little farther up the mountain which is fun, larger rocks to traverse. An ankle burner but very fun to traverse the rocks through the streams/creeks up there. The rocks have plenty of spiders amongst them so don't lie down for a nap. But it ends with some amazing close and clear unobstructed views of the mountains. Around the lake is quite muddy but do-able with reasonable footwear. Would recommend this hike for sure. Didn't see any bears.
