Beautiful hike on Sept 24th with great sunny sky. Hiked clockwise with stunning views of the aqua blue lake and rocky snowy peaks all around. After tracking past the lake the hike took us past rocky river bed until we started the ascent. Wonderful views of the waterfall towards the left. Once we started on the second part of triangle the views were spectacular and path took us past rocky cliffs. Saw about a dozen mountain goats grazing. Once past the peak on the third leg of the hike the switchbacks down were never ending...but beautiful. We have hiked all over the US and Canada and this hike was in our top three ever. Would do again.

The Iceline section of this hike may have been my favorite hike ever. Did the steep part first(hiked clockwise) and found it challenging but not brutal. If you do it this way the second half of the hike is a gradual descent through mostly woods and not nearly as exhilarating as the first half, but then again what is?

one word. GEM!.... this was a sight that I couldn't even believe. from the highway it's roughly an 8km drive to the falls. The drive itself is amazing. even a few switchbacks on the road itself. stunning views the whole time to the falls. once there, the sound is the first thing that grabs you. roaring like a beast. it's a small easy walk to the falls, accessible by anybody. once there. a thousand foot waterfall fed by glacial melt is out of this world. there is a fairly steep scramble/scree section for the more adventurous that can take you right to the base of the falls. literally, you can go to where it hits Rock. there is also another part with huge boulders and big rock that your can check out. it is massive and gives you a sense of movement while standing still. one of the most incredible things I've seen in my life. 10 min walk from the lot to get there makes it easy for everyone. amazing!

Nice views, good deal of work. Greatest reward is the Yoho lake waiting for you.

Nice peaceful hike through the forest at the start, very few people which is nice for a change. It is a long uphill people that haven't done much hiking before may find it hard. Good views at the top and views of he glacier. We completed it in just under 4 hours but with fast hiking.

We completed the Iceline trail in late September and it was fairly snowy, but still manageable without cleats. The views at the higher elevations on this trail are truly awesome - and that is an accurate use of the word, not a figure of speech. :-) We opted to complete a loop via Celeste Lake and Yoho Valley. This created a really enjoyable, varied hike: up through forest then gorgeous icy mountain views on Iceline and then down through mature forest, lakes, rivers, and water falls via Celeste Lake and Yoho Valley. If you go this way, be warned that the last hour or so is painfully boring. The Yoho Valley stretch at the end is very flat and not at all interesting. You could drive a small car on the trail it's so flat and wide, but I personally think it's better to end that way then to start that way. We saw others doing the same loop counter-clockwise which would mean starting out with the boring bits on Yoho Valley and ending with Iceline. I guess it comes down to personal preference. Doing the loop was a great deal more enjoyable than an out and back trip on Iceline alone would have been, so I do recommend this option if you are up to covering a bit more distance.

Great shoulder season trail. Wasn't too busy. Not sure I would enjoy it very much in the busier Summer months but in late September with a dusting of snow on the mountains and fewer crowds it was quite pleasant. Very easy trail - more of a walk than a hike - but also very scenic. Pretty much no altitude gain. Beautiful setting. Lake views as well as gorgeous mountain-scape. Would be a great place to walk a dog.
