Well worth the hike up the hill to see the lakes. There was snow when we visited so decent walking boots were required.

Grassi Lakes is a beautiful short and easy hike up to a couple small lakes that are Chrystal clear. Easy to access and great for families. Lots of people especially on a weekend.

We are staying in Canmore for our visit to Banff National Park. We wanted a nice hike in the afternoon just to get outside for a little bit. We took the easy trail, but I did notice that the difficult trail was closed—I’m guessing due...More

Hike around a nice blue green lake, perfect for families, not too hard or long. You can go up at a certain point to have a better view. It's up to you.
