We did this as an afternoon hike. the board says it is 13 km, but we found it was closer to 8.5 (we forgot to start recording at the stat and after our lunch break so our recording was a little incomplete). we went counter clockwise around the loop which would be great early in the morning before it gets busy, if you are going in the afternoon I would recommend the opposite direction as that allows some of he crowds to leave the busier area around the lakes before you get there and also puts you into the higher oldgrowth during he heat of he day. very beautiful hike overall the oldgrowth forest is stunning and the lakes are jewels. 5/5 would definitely recommend. lastly a word of warning, at the north end of first lake don't take the lake shore trail especially early in the season or after rains, as it was quite swampy and buggy even in the middle of a hot dry spell, the higher trail would be better.

Beautiful little trail close to Jasper. We took trail 9a and then 9. The lakes are spectacular! Plus the flora and fauna were in full bloom. So take bear spray and a bear bell as we came across scat.
