Glacier lake hike to red chairs

We’re in gorgeous Jasper now. On our way up, we stopped for advice at the Lake Louise Tourist info office. We’d already received a recommendation here for the Wilcox Lake hike to the red chairs. It was gorgeous but was at the end of my comfort range on the climb at that altitude. The other hike that they suggested was Glacier Lake to the red chairs. I can’t tell if this will be the same difficulty as Wilcox Pass or easier or harder. Or how long (distance or time) it will take. I can handle the same or easier. I know myself well enough not to go for harder. Thoughts anyone? TIA.

The Glacier Lake trail has little altitude gain, and based on this map https:/…rouge-red the chairs are close to the beginning, so I’d suggest they’re very easy to get to - def easier than Wilcox Pass.
