I agree with others - wouldn’t classify this as an easy hike... probably moderate with some rocky sections to scramble over.

Was a workout. I did not consider it easy at all. Unless this trail is different from the ascent I did on pincushion.

Visiting from the west coast and was looking for an easy hike with a great view. The view didn't disappoint, but it’s one that you can see the entire trek up, so no Wow! moment when reaching the top. I wouldn't classify this as an easy hike. Elevation and distance were fine, but the trail is challenging in areas and not maintained (ie: steps have eroded, scrambling over boulders) There was a lot of loose rock that made the first portion of the trail a bit sketchy. I had really good hikers on and took a tumble coming down. This hike should be rated moderate in my opinion.

Aug 10, 2017: Took the family (12 & 17 yrs old kids) & there was some challenging sections but totally worth the summit, the picture with the Canadian Flag & signing the log book! Going down was harder & we slipped a few times on the gravel in the steep areas. Great leg workout & bring water!!!
I would rate this as Moderate level, there are areas that were not easy where you have to climb up rocks.
It took us 3 hours total. That includes the 30 mins at the summit hanging out. We took it a little slower going up.

stellar lakeviews from the top but the loose terrain makes it not as fun on the way down.

Fantastic hike and great view! Our 3 year old followed and got the right amount of adventure up to the flag...

I was looking for a quick hike to break up my log drive from Seattle to Banff. This one was super convenient and challenging enough to wear me out. There were a few other people but not crowded. Easy parking. Safe area

This certainly is not what I would personally call an easy hike. Moderate for sure, uneven rocky inclines, not for someone just wanting a stroll. However beautiful views and a great trail.
