It is beautiful and definitely worth it, but definitely a little more taxing. You need proper hiking shoes, and it is a bit slippery and dangerous when icy.

This hike is excellent with amazing views all the way up. We took the waterfall route on the way up with little kids and it was doable. The views from the top and Grassi Lakes themselves are worth the 2.5 hour roundtrip. Keep going once...More

2 small yet very colorful and unique lakes. 2 Kilometer hike from the parking lot, and definitely worth stopping by when arriving at Canmore.
