The hike was really amazing with great views. There was a little bit of everything which made the hike really enjoyable. We made it nearly to the top but had to turn back as it was really rocky and didn't want to risk it with my dog. If you are going to climb up to the top it is really steep and loose shale, trekking poles are highly recommended.

Niles Meadow is one of less than 20 hikes that I consider absolutely a must do in the Canadian Rockies. This is a hike for experienced hikers and the rewards are numerous. Careful planning is required for the climb above the Meadow and is perhaps the most rewarding part of the entire hike. As you enter the large Meadow the very faint trail to go further is on your right. In good weather this full day hike has waterfalls, vistas, stream crossings, one huge lake, and views that go forever.
