Easy but it gives you back a lot.

Really nice! The ascent up the east side is challenging without being a slog. The south view from the lookout is incredible. The north view from the firewatch is absolutely worth the extra 45-60 minutes RT.

The western descent, down Jewell Pass is a nice, gradual winding trail across a creek. There's a waterfall, but it was frozen when I went in mid-May.

The toughest bit is the walk back along the lakeshore. It's attractive enough, but cold and windy.

This was a fairly easy hike, which is why I categorized it as walking. A really great option for kids, or if you're just getting your dog started out on hikes. Beautifully scenery. A LOT of spider webs. But beautiful and quiet.

Great family trail.
Grassi Lake's colours are awsome, try to get there as early as you can to avoid the crowd and enjoy this spot just for you.

What i like about this trail is that there are 3 major places you can stop and look at the view, there's a small scramble route that's pretty fun. lots of traffic, the only downside.

EZ Veiwpoint up The J is the nicest one. worth a hike!

Nice hike, lots of shade on a hot day. Took about 2 hrs with small kids.

This hike was extremely muddy in most parts. It had quite a few people horseback riding, we were the only hikers. The scenery wasn't anything special. Once at the top it was cool to see, you could see Calgary off in the distance. It took us 2.5 hours to complete.

We picked an amazing day to check out this hike in sheep river valley. A beautiful sunny day with the foster pup and my wife. The hike goes from a steady uphill to a steep , but manageable hike through the thicker forest near the summit. Walking poles or Mother Nature supplied ones highly recommended. Stick to following the marking tape and your good to go. Amazing views to reward you at the top. Great tip from a kindred hiker....bring a "cold beverage" ;) to celebrate the accomplishment.
