Amazing views of Spray Lakes from the top! Definitely a slog all the way up in snowy conditions but worth it. Snow was hard packed in most places, but spikes would be a bonus to avoid a tumble. Make sure to stay right (South) of the boulder field to make it easier on yourself!

Good hike up, some steep parts for my beginner legs. Way down was quick.

Went from Dawson to Bragg creek. A few nice views along the way. Pretty easy to follow till you hit the end of the reroute.

Awesome snowshoe hike. The views are amazing and there was hardly anybody on the trail.
I’d rate it more easy than moderate, since the inclination is very gradual except for some hilly parts near the end. Took us
3 1/2 hours to complete it including snack and numerous photo breaks.
Can’t wait to see the lake in summer!

Took the snowshoes made the east end of Sulphur a bit easier to walk. Beauty day Jan 15

nice scenery and outstanding view at the top

Nice hike. Passing the plant wasn't great, but once you get past the noise the walk up to the falls is beautiful. Just before the falls is some hieroglyphics on the rock.
Wear something water proof so you can slide down the ice in some places (great spot at the falls), or let your kids, if you're boring.

great little hike to start the new year off right.

Easy trail with amazing views

Wasootch Day Use Area is 17 KM south on Kananaskis Trail (Hwy 40). The trail head is fairly easy to locate but you are presented with a myriad of trails right at the onset. I found the best route is to immediately bear right towards the picnic bench and then follow the trail up from there. Note: The green trail map sign at the trailhead will tell you nothing of the trail to the ridge. It’s a fairly strenuous climb at first; edgy sections with small exposure, loose rock over slab, ~160m gain in 0.5km. Once on the ridge, it’s a series of up and down to several peaks. . I hit 5 minor peaks and only hiked just over half the trail! This day I just didn’t have the energy. The views all around are what makes this trip worthwhile. Right from the start, just turn around and take in the scenery, it’s breathtaking. I covered around 8.5km total trip, with ~765m elevation gain. The return trip would have been fairly treacherous if it was wet, lucky for me it stayed

It was icy walking through the canyon. Ice cleats will certainly help. There are some slushy spots to make it easier. Water proof clothing for kids who like to play, our kid was soaking by the end. Was a nice day out. One thing is walking past the factory place wasn’t our favourite. Waterfalls looked great and you can see people climbing them. Helmets wouldn’t be a bad idea while walking through.

Long, boring slog through the trees for 90% of the hike with nothing to see. Starts getting interesting at the base of Eisenhower. The last climb that takes you from Tower Lake to Rockbound is pretty tough but worth the trouble. The cliffs surrounding Rockbound Lake are extraordinary.

Breathtaking scenery. Crossing back and forth over the wooden bridges is a real treat!

Short and simple but plenty to be awed with. :)

Beautiful winter hike! But if you're not a very active person and just starting out then know that the full hike can be pretty harsh. It was my first hike of the year and I'm not a very active person and I walked out exhausted and in pain. But pushing through it is definitely worth it! But please, please, please BRING CLEAT ATTACHMENTS ! It is very icy in some spots and there's nothing worse then having your hiking vibe on and you're being held up because someone thought it was a great idea to wear Uggs or sneakers. DRESS APPROPRIATELY. Can't wait to go back and do a summer hike.

Very fun trail with a diverse set of terrain that was a lot of fun to navigate. Quite steep in places. The location of this mountain makes for amazing views of the larger local peaks.
