Nice quick trail with creek and falls

Just came back from Lady McDonald Ridge today Oct 22, 2016. Parking was closed for construction so we parked in the next street. Started hike at 6 a.m. There was little snow after helipad but no need to have traction device or crampoin. It was windy at the top. In the way back, saw a couple heading to the ridge for "Love Celebration"

Nice little walk with the family

Beautiful little hike great for kids

Very pretty. Great views of the surrounding mountains while still being right in town.

Just did this one on Sunday Oct 9th with my 10year old. Super easy trail. Lots of places where the path connects with others to continue on longer or more difficult hikes. We took the long loop along the water at the west end of the trail. We had lots of opportunities for pictures.

Great easy hike! Took our dogs and enjoyed the scenery.

Been coming here for many years. Good to just get out of the city for a quick peaceful easy hike. Great to bring children.

I have done this trail twice. Both times were fairly early in the morning, so neither was busy. For a first time, or after a temporary absence (in this case, following surgery)this has just enough challenging bits to let you know if you are ready to do anything more.

Short, busy but worth the visit

Very pretty little stroll

There's one area of the path that is actually quite difficult as the ground is loose gravel and it's quite steep. Still, other than that... Very nice trail.

It's not too bad for just a short walk but very busy on the weekend.

We hiked up the less busy climbers route which is a fancy way of saying "go straight up the mountain and enjoy it" and there are few people on the trail which is great! You arrive on the east summit ridge and can do a trail run along the ridge to the west which has great footing. A few ups for climbing but it's great. Did a slower round trip in 4:29 for 15.66kms starting at the ACC centre (parked by the firewood pile). We ascended into the clouds which was nice, easy trail to see at the top. The ACC route is a bit of a slog on the west side and up and down same route. Definitely run the ridge, so worth it!

It's the Rockies and this is an awesome hike!

Great little Sunday afternoon hike. Short and easy but fun !

Easy walk and nice with a dog. No difficult parts, unless you go off of the trail. Very busy on a warm summer day but everyone was extremely friendly!

Great for kids
