“This is the popular scenic trail up to Canmore's Grassi Lakes.”— Ordinary Fruit
This trail starts as a leisurely stroll through the woods on a tread with occasional roots and rocks. The trail slowly climbs until near the waterfall area, where the trail becomes quite steep and areas of stairs appear. These steep sections have some breathtaking views though, so feel free to take a break and enjoy, but mind the steady traffic of hikers. Upon reaching the top, there are two clear lakes, which the trail loops around, as well as a trail that leads higher up to the road at Whitemans Pond. You can return the way you came, or take the easier gravel Upper Grassi Lakes down.
