This popular trail ascends through forest to two small, crystal-clear turquoise lakes. Highlights along the way include wildflowers, waterfalls and stunning views of Ha Ling and Canmore. The first kilometer is through forest and is followed by a steeper section up rock stairs which make it easily manageable. A bridge over an outlet stream leads to the twin lakes under a cliff and other possibilities.
