Beautiful. Lots of tourists. You oh can go pretty close to the falls but you ll get soaked so waterproof what you need. Good hiking shoes as it can be slippery

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 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.

The walk is easy & the falls spectacular. Also great mountain vistas.
