This easy trail skirts Linda Lake and Cathedral Lake and ends with panoramic views of area mountain peaks. Two curious grizzly bears approached us the first time we hiked this trail. Because it’s less traveled than other Lake O’Hara trails, consider hiking in groups of four or more for safety whenever possible. You should also carry a compass and topographic map, since the trail becomes a bit sketchy in sections.
