Nice easy hike and not busy in weekday. Saw plenty of giant hogweed too closed to the trail, recommended to be aware of the toxic plants while hiking with kids.

This trail is a little on the difficult side because of the incline (or decline) of the trail. For the majority of the trail you are going 3 feet forward, 1 foot up in elevation. it is a very rewarding hike with absolutely beautiful views. at the top, someone has left a Canadian flag and Alberta Flag - it is great.

If you are fit and acclimatized to the the elevation, you should be able to get up and back in 1'45" to 2 hours. If you are taking your time, I would count on it being a 3 hour hike.

Worth all of the effort.

Relatively easy walk to the flag, I think it goes on for a while longer but I didn’t have time. Also a nice trail for horses if you have!

Yup yyyyytt

Super swell views and a great workout. Bit steep in some parts but nothing crazy

Great hike. No flat spots at all, straight incline from the first step! The was amazing. arrived on top at 9pm the sun was setting and it was well worth it.

Did this on July 6/18. Fairly easy hike with no exposure. Nice views. Lots of options for little side trips to other lookout points.

Fairly steep for 3/4 of the way up. Last 1/4 to ridge/summit not as bad. Took 3 hours round trip from parking to south summit with a 3 year old. Great views.

Loved this trail! Path was in good condition (early July 2018). Wide enough for two to walk side by side. Lots of cows by the side of the trail but they ignored us. Cows made me think of ice cream for most of the loop...sure enough the ice cream on the way home was unforgettable! I would recommend Pistachio and Butter Pecan in a waffle cone after this hike, but you won’t need the sprinkles. All in all a memorable day.!

Steeeeeeeeep. The view at the top helps you forget the burning legs. Great quick hike but would choose Moose Mountain over this if time in your day allows.

Very steep but short! Views from the top are amazing.

spent all day Saturday June 30 down big elbow trail looking for geos, some areas have washed up, first bridge is gone, made it to Tombstone Backcountry Campground stayed the night =)

Night stay at Tombstone Campgrounds journeyed down Little Elbow Trail July 1st, very beautiful, nice going down the mountain the up =)

Great hike. A steep hike with a wide path. Hiking poles would be an asset, bring them if you have them. The view at the end is spectacular, I will be doing this hike again.

Nice 2 hour hike. No amazing views but still really nice. Most challenging part was navigating around all the muddy spots. Some pretty steep inclines.

I did this hike with my 14 and 15 yr old. It's a very very manageable hike with kids and some spots with nice rolling hills. Not too much climbing and some beautiful views towards Elbow once you do climb up a bit. We even ran into a bear about 10-15 feet off the track eating from some kind of bush! We had a bear bell jingling and were talking loud but there he was when we came around the corner. He didn't seem too concerned about us, foraged a bit longer, and then leisurely made his way the other way. We were glad we had bear spray and whistles, etc, even though we didn't need to use them.
The nice beginnings of wildflower season up there too.

I would classify this hike as moderate, it’s definitely not hard. The first little bit is kind of a slog. Great views at the top and lots of forest walking and mountain flowers. Easily done in 2 hours

June 30, first hike of year, got heart rate going. Several sections covered with large puddles due to recent rainfall. Easy to get past. Waterproof footwear would be recommended. Trail muddy in sections but not too ‘slippery’.

A nice, fairly easy hike. Some nice views and a couple inclines, not overly stressful.

Follow signs for Prairie Creek Trail once parked. Couple forks in the trail at the start, but I believe all really lead to the main trail. I really enjoyed this hike! Rather steep, but so worth it!

Enjoyed the varied terrain, good views on the way up but no real summit at which to picnic.

Steep incline for the first 40-50min (longer or shorter depending on how many breaks you take), then beautiful ridge and fairly smooth descent, good workout.

Good "quick" hike for before work/after. Steep the entire way but gets you to the top quickly!

Great hike! Trails are well defined. I wouldn't say it was a hard hike. The uphill in the beginning was moderately strenuous but doable.

Short but steep trail. Good for a day where you get a late start. Awesome views at the top.

Great hike! Very scenic and beautiful views. However, I would not consider this hike as hard. It is a bit steep at the beginning, but nothing any novice hiker couldn't tackle and it can be easily done without hiking poles.

Nice easy hike with some hills to get the blood pumping. I went on the Sunday of May Long in the early afternoon and there wasn't a lot of people which was nice. There was a couple muddy spots but that will dry up quickly now. Not the best views, but good for a little drive out of the city.

Great easy hike, loved the views of Mt Baldy and Barrier Lake. Will come back to do the whole loop including Jewel pass.

From the bugging to top is uphill only. It was good exercise and too of the Mountain View is beautiful. I will go back there again.

Beautiful views, the last 1/3rd of the trail is a bit anticlimactic though.
