This is a easy to difficult trail to go on whether you take the iceline 24k 900 meter, or yoho valley 18k 400 meter. There are 5 waterfalls along the hike, plenty of glaciers to. A must to do, several trails lead off from the main one.

Amazing hike with several waterfalls and panoramic views. We crossed the falls and looped back down to Laughing Falls. My Strava app said it was 14.2 miles total. Very steep going up and down from Twin Falls but tons of switchbacks make it a little easier. Definitely was long and took all day but well worth it!

In 3 hours one can hike halfway to pretty Laughing Falls on this trail and back to the Takakkaw Falls parking lot. The majority of the 124 meter elevation gain is acquired on one hill after the spurs for Angels Staircase and Point Lace Falls. Higher, the trail is in generally good condition to the Laughing Falls bridge and campground. Good views of Takakkaw Falls, the Yoho River, and the Daly Glacier along the way.

Perfect trail! My wife and I have camping in the twin falls campground. Laughting falls is at the middle of this trail. Both of these two falls are amazing!

We completed the the trail, but added in the Marpole Lake trail, creating more of a loop, rather than out and back. Beautiful hike, with some varied terrain. Loved the many waterfalls.
The trail had a few fallen trees across the path, plus a large avalanche debris section covering the trail near Marpole Lake. It wasnt an issue and can be easily maneuvered through.
The seasonal bridge on the Whaleback Trail was still packed away for winter season, and Iceline Trail was still not recommended by Parks (June 20, 2018)

Lots of steep climbs. Challenging, but worth the effort.

Trail was in great shape early July 2017. Lots of great water features along this hike, give yourself some time to enjoy the sights!

We attempted to loop back past Marpole Lake but avalanche debris slowed us down. That trail is closed but currently passable though we did lose the trail along the rocks near the end. Recommend bringing GPS if you give that a shot.

Beautiful hike! So worth it! So many waterfalls along the way. We did the loop on our way back and you'll be on the side of a rocky mountain with spectacular views of the mountains and glaciers!

Did this hike a few years ago easily one of my favourites. We did it in 3 days and 2 nights. The switch backs at the end can wear on the legs but worth it to see all the falls

Just did the hike this weekend, what a beauty. Hike starts at takakaw falls, from there head west at a junction to the right is angels stair case falls, off to the left is point lace falls. Going straight a few more k after a steep incline is laughing falls, then valley remains flat until u have to go down to twin falls campground, from there it's another steep incline 300m to hit twin falls, which was a beauty. U can continue the loop through the iceline trail viewing glaciers, moraines, please note this is strenuous. I had to cross a rock slide going up not knowing it was even a trail. U are also out there for the elements exposed so hopefully u get a nice day out of it. Definately would recommend.

There are many trails that lead off like whaleback, yoho glacier and u can hit the top of twin falls
