Such an amazing hike, especially knowing your destination is an unreal cave with outstanding views. Don't forget your head lamp

Super dupper good! Inclined but with an amazing view of Canmore!

Make sure you bring some spikes if not it will be very difficult to get up there .. wonderful trail ! The summit is

April 19,2017. Trail is dry for the most part but there are quite a few mud, snow and ice patches. We could bypass most of it and my mom used her hiking poles. Crocuses are blooming at the lookout and all in all It was the perfect hike, with a dog within 30 minutes of the city. Can't wait to go back with our kids!

Lovely trail ! Best to bike in for the first part of the hike which is a lengthy section along a dirt road. The beginning of this hike is pretty muddy but turns dry after. The cave is amazing ! Be sure to bring a headlamp to get the full experience.

Super icy in spots

Very hard! Well worth the pain to get to the summit

Decent grind up the mountain. Was caught in a blizzard past the tree line, but having done this previously the views are nice on a clear day. Very slick conditions with the trail being iced up overlain with a skiff of powder. Traction aids recommended until it warms up.

Great short hike, good elevation and tones of sport climbing routes at top shelf,,,that you can hike around no problem.
We ended up hiking down the south ridge, back to the road to make it a loop.

Gruelling for an average hiker and slightly sketchy scrambling at the top BUT fantastic views and some nice adrenalin feels for an adventurous spirit.

This is like a candy hike. It is not very long but you have everything you want in a hike. Nice elevation, nice scramble and nice summit view.

I'll have to say that the climbing is very steep and it is harder than other hike because of that, but the view at the top is very nice!

This is beautiful hike! We went far past the cirque and up the ridge. Beautiful but was a little unnerving

The part of the trail along the river is closed now, but the rest of the trail was nice.

Amazing park along the river, excellent for dogs and people alike.

From site 2 there is a great loop along the river that is zoned for off leash dog walking. This loop crosses an open area dog park as week. If you want to feel out of the city stay along the river.
