Bow Valley Provincial Park is a mosaic of open meadows and forest. As you explore the park, you'll see examples of both mountain and prairie plants and animals.

We did this late fall last year. It was a great hike with little trail finding which adding the excitement.
The slab scrambles are excellent. A good place to train your scrambling skills.

The hike is along the creek bed, its a great leg work out because the terrain is loose but I wasn't overly captivated by the scenery. I made the trail more enjoyable by running the way back. It's a good trail if you're in a pinch and need a quick place to go.

completed this horseshoe hiking/scramble on November 04 thanks to warm and nice weather. Fantastic views all the way. Definitely will do it again.

A very intense / challenging hike / scramble. Definitely the hardest I've ever done. But it was a BLAST and the views are amazing the entire time.

Nice walk

oh my, i rode mtbike (and i ride still at this very moment) a lot this summer that really helped me did the loop last Saturday 15Oct2016. Started at 1145a and came back down to the parking lot around 600p because i was slow. with my two buddies who took care almost every step i make especially on those dangerous parts up to that chain grab all the way to the summit. wow, was awesome but so nervous until i landed that trail down the hill. scary folks for beginners like me, not recommended. you need to be fit (if tired, take a rest, you need this), of course food and water, and focused whilst doing these top trails up to the summit but for intermediate plus hikers? oh yeah it is going to be fun and they know what to do. be careful up there! 4 stars from me, difficult.

Love this place.

nice spot

I have mixed feelings about this hike. We did the difficult route. It started off really boring so I'm glad I did this one with a friend so we had lots to talk about! Once a couple km in the incline up gets super intense and I wondered if it would ever end Iol I am also not in the greatest shape and had major surgery 3 months prior so it really can't be that bad I guess.
There are two viewing points. Amazing. I'm scared of heights so it was a bit out of my comfort zone but loved every minute of it. I'm too much of a scaredy so I stayed back quite a bit but I felt the view was breathtaking.
The hike down was pretty uneventful as well. Through lots of trees and not too much to look at.
Once we were down we may have taken a longer way. Again. Nothing too impressive and it's along the power lines.

great scenery at the top overall good hike
