Mostly treed as expected. Nice views from Tower Lake. Will try again in the summer and maybe continue to Rockbound Lk. Packed snow today, micro-spikes worked great.

Packed down snow right up to the lake then you will need snow shoes to access the back half and the hike up to rockbound lake. Snow got too soft and deep for my dog to get through about halfway to rockbound and turned around it was atleast 3-4’ deep if not more

14 sep 19 on way to Rockbound Lake. Decent lake and in my opinion fairly easy hike to the lake. Saw very few people.

HikingMuddyWashed out

Came up July 14 for an attempt at Castle Summit but didn't make it past Tower Lake. Torrential downpour for 4 hours with only a 5 minute break on the way back. Very cold, most of the trail covered in was large puddles and lots of mud - easy to slip on the tree branches and rocky patches, and the small boardwalk on the way down. Not a bad trail but don't go on a day like today.

First to Review

Ended up doing this hike because Cory Pass was closed and we were already on the bow valley parkway. Wouldn’t call this hike hard, really more moderate but I think it’s rated as hard because of the total distance. We did this Easter weekend and so trail was snow after 3km Mark. Very enjoyable walk. Lake completely covered in snow which we expected but it was a nice 4 hour jaunt. Definitely this is best done in the summer when the flowers are blooming and the lake is visible. Will come back again in summer! Do not miss the opportunity to do the little climb up to silverton falls at the beginning of the trail. So pretty!!!
