One of the best day hikes in the Canadian Rockies. Over a relatively short distance you cover an amazing variety of sights - from alpine meadows, pine forests, right up to moraine fields directly beneath glaciers. The panoramic views in every direction are breathtaking. The first section from the trail head (parking is just before the Takakkaw Falls turn off) is pretty steep, but the rewards are certainly worth it - great views of the falls across the valley and the glaciers feeding it above, plus the steep climb gets you considerably high quickly, out of the tree line and from there on the views just keep getting better.

Although its listed as one way you can easily make a circuit, going back through the Yoho valley beside the river. Either turn off at the Celeste Lake junction, or really push yourself by heading to the top of the valley at the Mount Kerr turnoff before heading back. Long day but totally worth it. There are some really nice campsites for those who may want to break it up into a two day outing.

Highly recommend for a hike that is everything you imagine of the Canadian Rockies.
