A well maintained trail. Beautiful forested hike. The lake itself is huge and crystal clear. Very few people on this trail today making for some wonderful private views of the lake. There’s a great spot just past the rock pile that acts as a “point” and offers a panoramic view of this lake. You can really take in the grandeur of the surrounding mountains from here. A little clearing offered the perfect spot to eat lunch and play dice. Grab a coffee at Storm mountain lodge by their fireplace before your drive back to Banff or Calgary as well.

I cross country skied this trail and it is amazing. It turned dark and there was a clear sky with a full moon. As we skied across the mountain it opened up to an ice covered lake. With big fluffy snow flakes falling. It was cool but not cold as we had just finished a great workout by skiing in. We sat down and enjoyed Red delicious apples before heading back on the trail to ski out. The trail in was beautiful lined with tall Spruce and Douglas Fir and Blue Spruce all covered in white sparkly snow that glistened like diamonds. The trail goes up and down nothing too steep with long stretches of scenic beauty. ❤️

A bit boring hike as it goes through woods almost all the time.
But it's easy going and a good start for a hiking holiday in the mountains. The view onto the lake at the end of the hike, however, is stunning.

Amazing lake! Calm water, really cold but people jumped in quick. Totally worth visit, not a overly busy trail for being a holiday Monday.
