This is a great, manageable hike with really rewarding views at the top - there are high peaks in every direction once you get to the top; it's really worth the climb. One tip - we did this hike on the way back to Lake Louise after doing the Icefields Glacier tour, so it was fairly late afternoon when we got to the top, and at this point the sun was behind the most spectacular mountains that we wanted to photograph. If you can't work the manual adjustments on your camera like me, and the photos are a big deal, you may want to do the hike in the morning instead. Having said that, it was really worth it for the experience itself, whatever the photos you see afterwards, and if you do any hike off the Parkway this should be it!
