If you are already in the Banff area it's a great trail to burn some time. Take a couple drinks to the top to enjoy the chairs and the view!

We enjoyed seeing wildlife and the scenery was beautiful! Great for first time hikers and good for dogs as well. Lovely views of Banff townsite and the Banff Springs Hotel.

I absolutely love that trail, the view is magnificent and for a beginner, i found it just perfect and challenging enough to do. Very steep the first half but very safe. I stated before 9am on a Saturday and it was very quiet but as i was coming back down, lots of people were coming. Go early and you will have a parking spot for sure!

Pretty cool and not too challenging hike. You get some pretty amazing views though. Hit or miss in terms of a lot of people or not.

Reasonable traffic given proximity to town. Great views both over the Banff Springs golf course and town. Not technically difficult.
