Absolutely beautiful view of moraine lake from a different perspective. It was only relatively difficult at the beginning (first ~2 km) due to switchbacks but it was pretty flat the rest of the time. If I do this again, I’d want to continue to Wenkchemna pass into Larch valley.

Hiked this trail on September 14, and it was snowing the entire time! Unfortunately couldn't see the views well, however the soft snowfall was extremely beautiful and peaceful. Took around 4 hours round trip. I wanted to go down to the water, although we were afraid we would miss the last bus out at 5:30 if we did that, so we just took a quick break at the top of the trail and turned back.

Great views, a bit of smoke near Moraine Lake.
The trail does not easily reach Eifel lake and you need to scramble .5 km. to reach the water.

Get to the parking lot by 7am. It’s real, get there early.

Majestic - if you enjoy the journey with friends regardless of the destination then this trail is for you!

Other than the smoke, great mix of topography and great day hike. Take time to break at lake for a snack.

Great hike, once you get past the 1.2 mile mark it’s relatively easy going. Great views of the ever changing moraine and seen a marmot up close too!

Great hike. Very few folks out here today. We ate lunch at the lookout by ourselves for 1/2 hr. The view of Moraine was great and the last km offered great views of the glacial valley and Eiffel Lake.

Beautiful hike! Lots of switch backs with some pretty stead incline for the first 2.4 km and then the rest of the trail to Eiffel Lake is relatively flat. Breathtaking views of Moraine Lake and the mountains. Probably one of my favourite hikes!

Arrived at Moraine Lake by 820 am and the parking lot was full. We were able to park on the road but 2km from the trail head. The beautiful hike made it worth while..the crowds dispersed at the trail to Sentinel Pass. The lake was a beautiful spot for lunch. Still snow on the avalanche chutes and you could hear some avalanche activity along the trail. A great day ended with breathtaking views around Moraine Lake.

Amazing hike with breathtaking views. Most elevation gain happens during initial 10-11 switchbacks. Trail is pretty wooded in this switchbacks. After that there will be intersection-one goes towards Eiffel and another goes toward Sannitel pass. Then Trail goes to open area with breathtaking scenery and almost minor elevation gain. As of June 23 still about 6 snowy sections and some avalanche debris. Bring hiking poles - your knees will thank you downhill especially during switchbacks.

Moraine lake is stunning from all angels. Quite an easy hike after the switchbacks, Eiffel lake was slightly underwhelming after starting at moraine lake forever..

Great hike! You can add some nice miles going to the pass west that leads to BC (don't know the name). We also went to sentinel pass on the same day, it's very realistic to do both. The trail is well marked and easy to walk, so you make miles quickly, especially once the initial uphill near moraine lake is done.

This was a longer, but not terribly hard hike (toddler in a backpack & kids age 5, 8 & 12). We felt completely alone as we saw only 2 other groups of hikers after the split off. Quiet and peaceful... we enjoyed a picnic on the rocks by the lake. Amazing views.

Arrive early. We got here at 8:45 and were the second to last car able to park. Really a great hike with amazing views. The first km or so was really crowded but after a few switchbacks it thinned out and we felt like we were alone most of the time.

Very beautiful hike! The trail head is the same as Sentinal Pass which we were originally planning to do but avalanche conditions prevented it. Eiffel lake turned out to be very good. The trail is marked clearly and there is only one point where it splits (with one going toward Sentinal Pass). The view of the valley of ten peaks make this even better

Great hike. We heard and saw avalanches while hiking along with views of lake Moraine. As of June 23, some short sections of snow on trail easy to pass w regular hiking shoes.
