A gorgeous hike about 15km long! The variety of terrain kept things exciting, with lots of great views of the lake. The terrain isn’t too challenging but it is a long hike so that makes it on the more moderate side. We did this hike while camping at Lower Lakes campground, it was just a 5 minute drive away. It took us 5 hours to complete the hike with a few short breaks. The mosquitos are bad so stopping for too long wasn’t comfortable. It also seems like a lovely spot for a picnic and a stroll if you’re looking for something more causal in Kananaskis. This hike is also joined to Rawson Lake hike which is 3km.
