Super easy "hike" to spectacular lookout. Keep going up to get away from the crazy crowds. Depending on the trail you take, you could travel through a nice little meadow. At the top you can look out onto Bow Lake. The entire hike is easy. Nice clean trails.

One of the most beautiful overlooks on the planet! Hiked it the first week in July on a cloudless day. Once you get past the tourist overlook where most everyone stops to "Oooo" and "Ahhh," and then hike further to the good stuff at the rocky overlook, it's pay-dirt! Fairly easy trail on which we saw few hikers after the tourist overlook.
