Would choose this over a crowded lake Louise or Moraine lake any day! One steep section but what a beautiful and rewarding hike!



Beautiful hike, very easy! So many nice views! Loved it


Beautiful and easy/moderate hike. The track goes around the beautiful Bow Lake and then through the forest and next to a gorge up to the waterfall. In the end the track goes next to a creek (not deep). Wonderful views, we love this hike!
