Great rainy or snowy day option. We were initially a little disappointed that we were unable to do our planned hike due to weather, but what can you do when it snows in the mountains? If you said 'stay inside' I beg to differ! Go out on a lower elevation trail like Consolation Lakes. It's a very pretty trail, easy and a short distance so it's still safe when it's a bit wet or snowy. Of course I'm sure it's far prettier on a sunny day but we still really enjoyed it in the snow.

Moraine Lake is so spectacular. This is an easy hike, after you get past the stretch of boulders early in the hike.

Beautiful easy trails for all levels. Rock pile and scrambles add challenge towards the end of the trail to get to the lake. Watch for falling rocks from the nearby mountain but the view is totally worth it. Very calm and not many people were on the trail when we went.

Great trail for a group...nice and wide and fairly easy incline and terrain. Wear good shoes because once at the lake you'll want to explore the boulders and it's far enough from Moraine that it would suck to walk back with a sprained or broken ankle.

A beautiful wide easy trail! There are beautiful sights to keep you entertained throughout the trail- from the raging river to the dainty wildflowers. I hiked this with my 10 and 7 year old boys and it was no problem for them, other than them wondering if we were ever going to get there. The lake at the end is the reward. Although this is an easy level hike, proper footwear is a must.

Easy trail to a beautiful rock strewn valley and lake. Nice hike away from the crowds.

Gorgeous! Still some snow on the sides of the trail as of July 10. Rocks at the end can be tricky! So glad we did this while the crowds were at Lake Moraine
