We hiked the fescue loop today. Saw quite a few mule deer, bugs and birds. Bathroom stops along the way which was nice. A pretty easy 5km through the Alberta grasslands (although you're basically walking through a cut path surrounded constantly by cow poop). A few little steep parts but nothing too challenging.
Chantal F. on Canyon Creek Ice Cave Trail
Such an amazing hike, especially knowing your destination is an unreal cave with outstanding views. Don't forget your head lamp
Steven U. on Bear's Hump
Did this hike with my Father and son. Great hike. Still snow on the trail.
Chantal F. on Wasootch Ridge Trail
Great hike! Lots of snow on April, so wear appropriate gear. Amazing views!
Really enjoyed this hike, steep incline at the beginning got the blood pumping (in not in tip top shape) and the views at the lake are fantastic. Did the hike twice and successfully fished for cutthroat trout each time. Grizzly activity on the west ridge above the lake.
Great hike, the falls were just starting to melt, the ink pots were very interesting. Seeing the spring bubbling up through the sand at the bottom of the ponds was pretty cool.
Went April 20 crampons definitely made the hike enjoyable. Saw lots of people struggling in running shoes.
