Amazing. Easy at the beginning it was easy started to climb a bit and the view of the waterfalls at the end was stunning. I took a detour up to the ridge and had even more panoramic views. But only do that if you are very experienced hiker and willing to do some scrambles.

The marked trail starts nice and easy and the gets steeper towards the end of the marked trail. From the end of the obvious marked trail we continued up the mountain towards the glacier. There are some markers but they are hard to see at times. The climb is very steep but once you get over the crest you get an awesome view of the glacier! It’s well wirth the climb.

Nice easy trail. We took the advice from other posts to start from the campground, and we're glad we did. Took us about 2 hours round trip. We did not spot any bears, and there were lots of people on the trail.

Followed the loop outlined here with 2 children 5-10 years old. Lots of shade until hit open part of the glacier. Great views before and after the switchbacks. Meeting of the Waters a great way to finish the hike. Quiet after the long weekend. Excellent, highly recommended!

The route here is incorrect, and I’ve suggested a correction of it in the app. It is marked here as being a loop that also follows the great glacier trail up the mountain. The signs on the ground indicate that the meeting of the waters trail is just the small loop at the bottom, and that the trail up to the glacier (well, the view of it) is just the great glacier trail (and two other trails). The highlight of this walk is a pair of chairs overseeing the point where two rivers meet (hence the name of the trail). The categorization is right - this trail is easy, as long as you don’t try to do the intermediate hike at the same time (as some commenters have done). If you are doing the great glacier trail, you can take one half of this walk on the way up and the other on the way down.

Amazing hike! Trail is well maintained. First half is easy, second half more challenging but not too bad. Took us 3 hours, but we stopped for lunch at the top, did a bit of scrambling and took a lot of photos along the way.

Don’t be fooled, this is a moderate trail. 5/10 on difficulty. Mellow till the end when it gets steep. You do a lot of the elevation towards the waterfall at the end. Nice views and you get to play on the rocks to go further.

When we came back we all saw a three year old brown bear eating berries in the hotel ruins. This trail is more like a walk in the park. It is like visiting a museum on early railroad development in BC.

Some posters are confused, probably by the somewhat generic name of the trail. This "Meeting of the Waters" is in Glacier-Canada and is a very pleasant, flat walk. There is a viewpoint in Yoho with the same name, but that isn't a hike.

Definitely would not consider this a hike but it is still beautiful and worth consideration. The river is beautiful and easy to access.

This a beautiful view! Not much of a hike, more of a walk! It’s just gorgeous and worth the quick walk over from the other trails in the area.

Enjoyable 3 hour walk (hike). Allow more time in the future and keep climbing up to the glacier. Alpine/sub-alpine flowers along the path; saxifrage, false hellebore, willow herb and the stunning purple/pink monkey-flower. Beautiful and relaxing views all around with the roaring water background sound.

Beautiful walk in a beautiful setting. Moist forest and fresh air in a perfect mountain setting. (Note: the picture of the red sign with yellow letters is not for this trail. This trail is in Glacier National Park off the Trans Canada Highway near Rogers Pass)

The Yoho and Kicking Horse rivers merge; and have two distinct colorations.
