Beautiful trail, but we stupidly took a wrong turn at one point and ended up on another trail (old fort point maybe) headed back towards Jasper. We never did see the other lakes after doing that.

Nice easy walk with great views of the lakes. We especially enjoyed the lake with the adirondack chairs set up to sit and quietly enjoy our surroundings for a few extra minutes.

fantastic hike. a couple of steep sections, but the view is well worth it. we didn't do the long walk around the 1st lake, but I am sure it would have been nice also.

Nice easy hike. We didn't walk around the entire of Lake 1 as had read that the other 4 Lakes were much nicer. Lake 5 was beautiful with a wooden dock you would could out onto.

We arrived around 12:30 and parking lot was full, but found a spot when someone left. Did the smaller loop over to 5th lake circling 2,3, and 4. Got back to the vehicle around 1:30 and 1/3 of the parking spots empty. Although lots of people there, it did not seem overly busy on the hike and it was easy to get the perfect picture without waiting for others.

Interesting hike. Pretty lake views.

It's a nice, easy hike and you can add a bit of distance by incorporating some of the longer (~35km) hike. It's a good one for kids or with companions who aren't used to hiking. The color of the lakes...so blue your friends will think that the pictures were edited.

Really enjoyed this trail. A few ups and downs in the terrain, but nothing terribly challenging. Was just the right distance for me, my wife, and our 8mo old. A few good picturesque views along the way, particularly by the first, third, fourth, and fifth lakes.

Amazing views, steep in a couple spots but overall very easy trail, lots of good spots to get some amazing shots of the turquoise blue lakes. 100% worth it to take 2 hours out of your day for.

Great hike to do with the kids! Our 4, 7 and 9 year old had a great time. Stunning views of the lakes, lake 5 and 4 are good for swimming.

Gorgeous emerald green lakes along this easy loop hike. The longest part is getting to the 5th lake (if you go clockwise at the loop start it goes Lake 5, 4, 3, 2, 1). Once you hit the first lake (Lake 5), they come pretty quickly. I went with my 8 year old son and it was an easy, fun hike.

Beautiful views of blue lakes of varying shades. Red chair location between 4th and 5th lake. Easy hike, but very busy in peak season/times so go early! Wildflowers in bloom beginning in May.
