    Breath taking view of two hues of light and dark blue lake with its mountains trees and plants. Feel its fresh air and the aroma of the lake and trees very soothing to the nerves.  more »

    Very easy hike, only one steep incline but it's very short. Trail was well kept, and offered amazing views the whole way. I took my time with photos and took around 2.5 hours to complete

    We drove here for an early morning photo shoot and it was stunning. It's an easy walk to the lake and countless photo opportunities right away. Highway 93 is also an amazing road to drive.

    Definately worth walking too. Its called a hike but there isn't very much of a incline. You get a 180 view of bow lake too. The lake is stunning atleast visit this if not the falls. The lake is next to the road so its super accessible.
