Great little trail system and not far from Calgary. The trails were packed down but we snowshoed anyway.

I did this trail last July. Beautiful short hike that I definitely plan to do again shortly.

Today was a great day for a hike. Easy to moderate at best. Good hike for beginners.

Did this trail with my pregnant wife, recovering dog from surgery, and 4 year old son. Very family friendly, but still somewhat hidden from the crowds. Great forest setting.

Great trail for a fall hike. There is a new bridge put in sometime in the last year. Park at Indian Oils and go from there.

great trail to get back into shape

Nice moderate fall or spring hike.Some limited views west of the mountains. May be cattle in the area. Very similar in distance, elevation and views as Fullerton Loop.

Beautiful!!! excellent trail for beginners, beautiful scenery. Just have to keep your eyes peeled for the tree roots! Lol

Very nice!

This was a great hike to do with the kids. We went left on the loop and I think it worked out better for us for elevation. We almost missed the turn. We will be back to explore the other trails in this area.

Great hike. Harder than it looks! The approach through the woods has a lot of ups and downs, which can add a lot of time.

Lovely views and a tough, but not impossible summit.

Nice Forrest walk with view

Really enjoyable hike with some beautiful views. The trail has some marked signs, but no sign on the road so it is difficult to find at first. Go west 1.6 km from the Sandy McNabb recreation area and you'll see a pull out area on the right for you to park. The trial starts off from there.

I took my kids here, great trail well kept!

nice quiet forest hike.....watch out for wildlife on highway approaching parking lot. lots of them.

Good clean trails. Nice hike. We did the complete loop in around 1:45 min. Make sure you wear running shoes as there are a lot of ingrown tree stumps along path. Path is will maintained.

Soooooo many flowers. Beautiful. Trails in great shape.

Awesome climbs, and amazing views from the top

love coming out here

Really relaxing easy walk, beautiful surroundings.

We went in March. It was icy, but very easy and kids friendly hike.

Very easy and safe walk. Close to Calgary. If you dont know how to spend few free hours this place will do it.

Drying up quick. Great start to the season!

Sunday April 30th
This trail was a lovely walk. At this time one of year the ground had every condition - dry, boggy, snow and icy. We didn't need crampons, our waterproof walking boots were perfect for this trail.

Once on the trail we took the right turning to begin and I'm glad we did. Taking the trail this way meant the incline was a challenge but not too difficult. The lookout point is beautiful.

We got round the full trail in about 2 hours, seeing only 1 other person the entire time.

There are toilets in the car park but no rubbish bin!

Lots of mud/snow right now (April) but I really enjoyed the trail! Really accessible for newbies, the woods felt lovely, and the occasional view. All that, and it's just an added bonus it's a 5 minutes drive from my home!

April 19,2017. Trail is dry for the most part but there are quite a few mud, snow and ice patches. We could bypass most of it and my mom used her hiking poles. Crocuses are blooming at the lookout and all in all It was the perfect hike, with a dog within 30 minutes of the city. Can't wait to go back with our kids!

A nice and quiet park

Nice quiet forest walk

Nice little 7kms with some nice view points. Very icy, wear spikes until no snow, lots of shade and icy steep bits. Lots of variables for trail lengths and would be a good snow shoe with more snow.
