I did this hike one late morning in September with my wife. She loved it more than I did. The hike is in itself not very tough as the trail is wide enough for bikes as well as in winter for cross country skiing. We saw a couple of people who came up minutes behind us. The views from the top by the lookout cabin is awesome. Can see both upper and lower Kananaskis lakes as the trail reaches the top. Good hike any time of the year.
