HikingGreat!IcySnow

It was great everything was compact, Beautiful views, Nice long trip in the winter I do recommend cross country skiing, or ice picks on your boots.

HikingGreat!

Did the tramline trail on the way back to the Lake Louise campground from the lake. It was very calm and peaceful, but no real amazing views like some other trails. It is very gradual and easy until the merging point with the Louise Creek trail where it becomes a bit tougher. This would be a great trail for kids or pets, a nice jog, or biking. Also good if you want an easy way down from the lake.

Mountain bikingGreat!

The trail was very cleared off and nice! We went from Lake Louise Inn on bikes to Lake Louise and the gradual incline was challenging on the way there so we walked the bikes sometimes but the way back was very fast downhill. Not busy at all and no bugs! Pretty creeks and views along the way.

Skied this in February. Great little rip. Quite quiet considering it was a long weekend.

Great hike! I was unable to get anywhere near Lake Louise cause of traffic so I started at the beginning of the tramline and hiked to Lake Louise avoiding the traffic. My hope was to hike past the lake to the tea house but ran short on time. Other than the crowds at the lake the views along the river were beautiful and of course Lake Louise was well worth the visit

It’s a very nice trail! It splits in the forest from the creek trail. We took this trail on the way up and the creek one on the way back down. Super nice well kept trail. But very dense forest on both sides. So you don’t see much other then trees for awhile. It took us about an hour and a half from the parking lot to the lake, but we stop a few times for pictures. The trail is not hard though! It’s easy-moderate

What a surprise find in Lake Louise. At the turn of the century guest of the lake hotel were shuttled via tram from the Lake Louise rail station - now a restaurant. The path is broad and easygoing as it zigzags to the Lake.

This is a good and very easy trail that's worth doing if you're here for a few days. Some good views along the way for pictures.

Beautifully kept trail that leads you up to the world famous Lake Louise and their fresh water whales. Great hike for anyone that loves nature, the outdoors and fresh water whale watching.
