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
This was the first hike I ever did two years ago, and we went again yesterday (April. 22) great for beginners or people who don't have a lot of time in the day. Very close drive from our home city of Calgary and easy to find as it is one turn before Nakiska ski hill. The falls are beautiful and relaxing! Would definitely do this hike again!
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!
Great little Hike! Super fun for the whole family! Don't not get discouraged by the start of the trail being close to the mineral plant it gets so much better from there.
Terrible signage, once you reach the bench looking out to the spillway head up the actual canyon and it's nothing awesomeness from there! Better than expected!
The trip out was great, snow was packed down nicely. The trip back was much warmer so we sunk down quite often in the snow. Well worth the trip. The waterfall was beautiful. There is a very easy path to follow to Lillian Lake but no trail to get to Galatea Lower Lake.
