Wow, what an amazingly breathtaking place it is. The hike uphill, which isn't all too easy, took us about 2 1/2 hours. But can easily be done in less time. The difficulty makes it a rather less travelled place, which only adds to its beauty....More

Hike starts out on a gravel service road. BE AWARE- 1/3 of the way up- you can take the trail that goes through the woods. Much nicer to hike this way than to stay on service road. Pretty trail with sections to look back at...More

This hike starts at the parking lot and goes on top of the Bald hills overlooking Maligne lake. On a sunny day the water in Maligne lake is a beautiful blue. This makes for some great pictures. Take the road to the top- fairly easy...More

It was a difficult hike but totally worth it. You get a good view of the surroundings. Good pictures of Maligne Lake

I trekked this trail in the early morning, after a dewy start I headed up the road and then took the turn to the left as suggested by other reviews. This trail provided many switchbacks and difficult conditions as it was still covered in snow...More

I would agree with the others, this is not a hike for a small child.
