We started out on a warm cloudy morning and ended with light rain and enjoyed every minute. Moderate difficulty as listed. Great views of Canoe Lake. A very worthwhile hike.

This is one of our favourite hikes in the park. It's long enough to make you feel like you're getting away. It's not too long that the kids can't complete it in a couple of hours. Parking lot is sometimes full but what would you...More
