Amazing family hike.
Only thing I didn't like was the first 1k is right off the highway so the noise was a distraction from the scenery.
We took our four kids ranging from 6-15. They loved every minute of it. Even the wet muddy trail after the snowfall!
I felt like it was a perfect amount of elevation for the kids. The scenery constantly changing. And of course the many many bridges were lots of fun. They weren't bored one minute!
We will definitely go back to check it out in the spring / summer!
We turned this into a 10.5k hike by first visiting the Bow Valley Diefenbunker then going up heart creek trail. The Diefenbunker is a man made cave that goes 400 ft. into the side of Mt. Mcgivallry. there's lots to explore in here but bring lots of bright flashlights and or headlamps. Heart Creek was pretty neat too we scrambled up to the falls at the end the rocks are very slippery be careful!
