With good shoes, a full water bottle and some trail mix for an extra shot of energy, this trail is easily do-able for someone who does regular walking. There are a couple steep sections, both up and down, but the trail is well-maintained. The trail can be hiked or biked as far as Kinney Lake. The Lake is a beautiful spot for a picnic or just to admire the view at the base of Mt. Robson. Most kids do well on this hike as well.

       Love this ride. There are a few spots that are a little steeper, but most is an easy uphill ride until you reach Kinney Lake. To this point, it is a gravel trail wide enough for a vehicle. After this, the trail becomes single track and is a little more difficult. There are picnic tables at the beginning of the lake and beautiful views making this a great destination to ride to even with young kids. Make sure to take the time to enjoy the smells of the rainforest on the way!
