Went up to climb at the crag to climb and realized I'd never been to the top of the hill! The view was awesome, better than prairie mountain in my opinion. I think this will be my new go to if I want a quick hike without having to commit to a whole day of trekking.

headlamps, gloves, warm coats a must for caving. After entering main chamber there's three tight squeeze s each leading to a smaller area. Super fun and safe with commom sense. 4.5 hours counting lunch with an 11 year old and with bikes. Saw a marmot at cave entrance. Super fun hike if you bring bikes, otherwise will be a long walk. Access to parking area is off 66 towards Ings mine

Hike: 7.5KM
Elevation Gain: 690M
Moving Time: 2.5HRS

Steep challenge all the way to the top/ incredibly rewarding view! Will do this again!
Did this hike at the beginning of may! It’s popular- lots of traffic! Some snow!

Great hike. Now our annual Father’s Day hike.

Nice easy hike with some nice views of the river.

Super rewarding hike! 10/10 would do again

Beautiful, nice and easy hike!

Short hike, beautiful on top, very windy

Great quick hike. We went yesterday in the rain and there was almost no one else on the trail. Unfortunately the summit was in the clouds so not much of a view! Some steeper sections, I would recommend trekking poles. A great place for dogs, (sticks and squirrels everywhere)

Awesome workout trail.

Nice and short. Steep at some parts. A bit of smashed up stones as you get closer to the top which can be somewhat slippery. Not too tedious and pretty easy overall.

A rewarding view for a moderate amount of effort. I've brought friends new to hiking on this several times and while it can be a bit of a grind through the forest, it doesn't last long and the payoff is huge!

its not hard at all. Easy walk on the road. Better if you bike. The effort biking or walking the bike up sime hills, pays off for a super easy and fun ride back

Did this hike today with my 11 yr old. Great and fun hike. Mostly mtn bikers, but surpisingly polite. Loads of families. Boundary Ridge to Strange Brew to Ranger Summit Loop worked out well. Taking Ranger first would be pretty steep. Two hours up, 1 hour down, half an hour for lunch. 1 main vista with a couple of other nice views. The amount of signage was the best I've seen. Lots of criss cross trails so you can make it longer or shorter. Will definitely do again. Lots of off leash dogs, througout trail. Most well behaved. I wouldnt take a younger child on this hike for this reason. Aside from that perfect!

Nice easy trail, but lots of mountain bikes. Be prepared to move out of the way often.

A really steep climb! Don't underestimate it!
It's not a particularly long hike, however, if you grind it out you can make it up in an hour and a half. Would definitely make for a nice sunrise hike.
There is no scrambling on this trail so it is kid/dog friendly in that regard.
The views are varied, with a nice look at the mountains on one side and the foothills/even Calgary in the distance on the other.
Finally, make sure when you are coming down that you don't take a false trail! You need to stick to your left when you come down, don't take trails that go straight. Found this out the hard way. If you do, its bushwhacking until the very bottom where there is a separate trail near a creek.

Perfect incline: at parts any steeper would have required our hands, but were comfortable in our moccasins and Chuck Taylors respectively. Nice amount of canopy. Great payoff at the summit. Sunny Saturday AM was not too busy maybe saw 50 others all morning.

Easy to follow, nice views, varying incline. Great hike for the start of the season!

Epic MTB trail in winter and summer. Local favourite for bikers as strange brew has a super wicked descent.
Local bears frequent during the season, always carry bear spray. Cougars nearby as well season long.

This is my favorite. It is challenging, but you dont have to be an expert hiker or in great shape for that matter. The scenery is always changing and it is long enough for you to feel accomplished, but not long enough to take up your whole day

Very easy leisurely walk. A great walk to stop and smell the flowers.

Very short hike roundtrip, about an hour and a half. Beautiful views at the top, mountains in almost all directions. The elevation is a great workout for the legs, hiking poles helpful for the decent.

Very steep. Good hiking shoes or boots are a must. Poles would be a bonus, I did it without. Great open view at the top!

short trail with a few switchbacks. definitely doable in jeans.
