Nice ebbs and flows. Took about an hour 45 to get up. Gondola is free down until May. Unfortunately pure fog when I went so no views but great hike.

Quiet, nice views, easy afternoon hike. One complaint that I have is dog owners need to pick up after their pets.

Good trail for walking and biking.

I was there again on April 15th, it was really, really slushy. I’d recommend gaiters! Also there was a few patches where we sank into the snow well past our knees although it made for a great laugh, it was a bit more work to get out of the snow. Still beautiful and worth the adventure. Take some extra clothes to be dry on the ride home!

This is one of my favourite paths in Calgary - for some of it, you forget you're even in a city. My favourite part is through the Weaselhead area, my least favourite is along the causeway along Glenmore Trail - that brings you back to the fact you're in a city REALLY fast, with cars screaming past you at 80 to 100kmh. Thankfully once you're off that bridge and either into the neighbourhood to the west or near the hospital to the east, it settles back down. Lots of opportunities for photos, for rest breaks, even a snack at Glenmore Landing (lots of selections - McDonalds, Starbucks, Good Earth, Booster Juice to name a few) - it's a good 3-4 hour journey. It is definitely a busy path with bikers, runners and walkers, but it's worth the journey.
I am looking forward to when the dam deck is open to extend the walk - but that's a couple of years away!
It's a beautiful day for a walk, so off I go!

A good shoulder season hike. Icers were helpful for the descent. Mud will be an issue if and when the weather warms up.

Really enjoyed the trail, on a beautiful winter/spring day ☀. Probably could have used snowshoes, although not really required. Good amount of snow still covering all of the trail; but, we were able to avoid breaking through in the deep spots. Would probably be a very nice trail in the summer too.

Great spikes trail. Easy to follow trail for the first part, snow had filled in the packed trail in the middle sections of the ups and downs but still could follow. Fantastic views at all times except for the steep part after leaving the parking lot. Great winter trail!

Great winter or shoulder season hike! Did it last weekend- I would recommend spikes, although possible without. We literally slid all the way down the mountain on our bums!

This was an accidental hike with the hubby we wandered onto it but fun non the less. We adventured into the trees and went up the mountain all the way around the lafarge plant some amazing views and neat to see upclose

Beautiful spot in the fall, fun for kids to wander around lots of wildlife and scenery. We have gone to the picnic spots and roasted weenies

Love this easy hike for the kiddos beautiful scenery and close to the hotel for food and picnic spots, great hike in winter, fall or summer

The kids loved this one, great little trails for you to walk to the hoodoos just need to keep a eye on the little ones

This is a great trail for in summer, easy for my 4 year old to keep up pretty neat waterfall at the end. Short trip though but nice for a picnic

Great and easy little hike with stunning views. Recommend microspikes during this time of year.

This was a pretty easy hike! In the winter, you can walk right up to the water fall and walk under it which is pretty sweet. It’s not a huge water fall but still pretty! If you’re planning on going before summer, wear water proof shoes of some sort as the ground is quite damp.

Nice little trail. Good for beginner hikers. Did this in apr/18 snow was pretty slushy and packed spikes and poles are your best friend. Just be mindful at the loop I found some rather fresh and big grizzly tracks. Mom and cub it looked like.

will go back in the summer. only downside was the noise and scenery downer from the Plant and powerlines that was next to/through the majority of the trail

A couple of friends and I did this trial last summer!! Highly recommend!

Some icy spots, some muddy spots, some dry spots. Overall enjoyable hike with intervals between steep and level trail. Took 2 hours to casually stroll and stop to enjoy views.

Loved this hike. Little hard to find the trail head but it’s just behind the green map sign. Goes straight into a hectic ascent but eventually ends up in a nice undulating climb. Wore crampons and gators and they were both necessary. Beautiful views

Loved this hike. Definitely a work out but nothing too strenuous. We did it with crampons and they were definitely helpful. View at the top is amazing. Took us about 4 hours total.

My friend and I attempted hiking to the peak today but eventually turned around due to knee/waist deep snow without snowshoes. We also didn't have this map to follow; we just took the one from Baldy Pass. Great hike and will try it again.

Enjoyable and Beautiful hike!!

Icy and muddy. Be careful

Worth the trip. Amazing views once it opens up after the switch backs. Brilliant!!!

Very cool hike. There’s a few steep sections where you have to work but in general the incline isn’t anything too tough. Hiking the ridge by the tea house is very fun. Definitely recommend it.

Switchback style trail with a few views of the Vally as you go up. Brilliant views once you summit. It’s a treat that you can grab coffee and a snack at the gondola facility.
