Nice, easy trail with pretty scenery. A good low-elevation option for when the weather is questionable as it was the day we went. I imagine this trail would get quite busy on nice days, so I recommend going on a rainy day and/or in shoulder season like we did. It was still fairly busy, but not too bad since it was late September and it was intermittently rainy.

Deep into the woods and a decent incline but beautiful views of the forest. Quiet. 6 km and worth it

Interesting hike with good flowers. The bridges early on were a highlight, but then no views until you reach the pretty lake. Lots of mosquitos.

Pros:
Good for all skill levels
Different hiking options on the trail (It is 2.7 km one way and we took the loop to East Kootenay Trail, so totaled about 7 km instead of 6)
Lots of wildflowers and great lookout points

Cons:
It was cloudy so I didn't get great mountain views - still worth it!

Was a quiet morning hike though the bush with lots of Fall colors to enjoy. easy trail with a nice reward of snow capped mountains reflecting in the lake
