It is not very steep as hikes in the rockies go, it is long for some though. about 10miles round trip to the view point beyond the tea house. (which is definately worth it, go on past the tea house!).

It is a very easy all day hike, uless you go beyond the view point and out into the Moraine

Just a gentle reminder, before this thread gets going again, that the OP's trip already took place, in September of last year.
