The trail is not well marked at all, about 5 minutes in the the only way to figure it out is with the GPS, not ideal.

Nice trail but not much of a view from the top. Fairly flat/moderate incline for the first 2/3 or so and then a decent climb for the last 1/3. I’d recommend hiking shoes/boots. Trail is pretty rocky. But definitely still doable in runners.

Tough at the beginning, steady uphill, but easier once you hit the switchbacks. Your view is all tree line until you hit the “false summit” then it opens up to beautiful mountains and wild flowers.

Tried to hike this today. Not a very well marked / defined trial. Basically had to rely on the gps to stay on track. Ended up turning around after an hour. Pretty country. Just needs some definition on the trail.

Fairly easy trail more steeper 10 minutes from the top (cliffs). Kinda overcast when I was there and than the thunder started. Had a drizzly rain all the way back down helped cook me off. LOL

Went from Dawson to Bragg creek. A few nice views along the way. Pretty easy to follow till you hit the end of the reroute.

Loved this loop! Will definitely do it again.

Nice hike...short drive from Calgary...sooo if Burstall is a 4 i guess this would be a 31/2.
Not difficult...slow steady grade...spectacular view from the top and for lunch!

Amazing view at the top. I didn't find this hike to be to difficult and it was during winter. Can't wait to go back and see it during the summer.

Nice simple trails. A little more popular around the camp-ground than I'd like but not so bad. Been to the Sibbald area many times. Very green, tails mostly in forest areas.

Great trail really easy to follow not a lot of snow yet so didn't need snowshoes. The trail is mostly just a hike along a cut forest trail, a couple of small elevation gains along the Eagle trail to the lookout which was about 12kms return back to the trailhead but generally pretty easy going. Lots of Whiskey Jacks that are more than happy to eat lunch out of your hand. Almost impossible to get lost as all the trails except the final 4K of the
Eagle trail just circle around.

Great trail to get back in the swing of things after a long winter. Love the views and my dogs love all the water to soak in along the way to cool off.

We left from the Dawson parking lot and the trail we snowshoed/hiked was awesome, but they are very poorly marked. There are a couple of maps but it is very difficult to decide which trail the maps refer to. It was a lot of up hill which lead to a fantastic view overlooking the valley. There wasn't enough snow once we got a third of the way up so we hiked teh rest.
