As it’s a creek bed so you need to be aware of water flow and any weather changes. Be prepared to get wet feet! Great on a hot day. The upgraded parking lot is just off the 1A just east of Exshaw. Across from Graymont. Signage, parking lot w toilets.

Did this on May 27th. The trail starts with a beautiful path through Aspen trees. Hitting them in the morning light is incredible!! Then the steep terrain begins. Yes, VERY steep!! Poles will help on the way up and down. We couldn’t do the entire hike up to the pass because there was way too much snow. We were planning on doing the scramble up Edith too, but will have to wait until later in the season. We came back down the same way, which isn’t ideal but it’s not the worst. Had good shoes and poles and didn’t slip once. There’s a lovely spot for lunch about halfway up.

Parking was accessible and not too busy today, May 29, 2020. It is not a beginners trail, I’ve decided to take up hiking and start exploring some trails and tried this one, it was tough and I had to stop often to rest, but there were lots of places to take a break. Very clean and easily accessible. The second half was difficult but it was worth it for the view! There’s lots of uphill so keep that in mind if you’re just starting off, I’m excited to see what other trails I’ll take on and discover.

Very enjoyable trail. The lakes are cold but very refreshing. Trails are not too hard.

Gorgeous sunny day. Great big ascent to start. Breathtaking vistas at the top. Nice mix of terrains and a chattery creek for a slow meander out. Bring a picnic for the meadows.

Started around 10:30, got back to the trailhead at around 3:20 from the first peak and some additional time taken for lunch. Honestly loved this hike, but I’m VERY glad my friend had poles to share with me because those helped a lot on the shale, especially on the way down so I would suggest those for sure. The first bit is super steep but it slowly gets a little easier. The views from the first peak were spectacular... we were going to do the full loop but getting to the second peak was pretty sketchy and super steep and we were both pretty fatigued already so we went down the same way. Again, the poles helped A LOT on the way down!! Overall a damn good day.

May 29 2020 started at about 10:30. BRING POLES! They were super super helpful especially on all the shale. Went up clockwise to the first peak but couldn’t complete the loop because it was sketchy. Went down the same way. Again poles will help with the sketchy-ness haha. No snow in our path. If you’re scared of heights.. I would not recommend.

Really nice little hike to start off the season. Fairly flat, nice tree cover, trail quite muddy and flooded in a few spots. We saw some bear tracks in the mud. Took the fork down to the Lower Waterton Lake to eat our lunch on the shore. Next time we’ll bring our bikes and go further to Vimy Peak.

May 29 nice hike, challenging, good for training to hike eventual harder mountain. I took the right side, it going up all the way. It’s a bit muddy but really praticable. It took me 3hours 40.

This hike was fairly steep from the beginning. When I got to the tree line I went left instead of right and it was sketchy to climb without poles. I didn’t finish the hike as per the map but there was a great view from the top of the rocks. I spoke to some other hikers on the way down that went right at the tree line and they said it wasn’t sketchy.

Paved sections out of the parking lot are really crowded. We got lost in the mud because the forested trail isn’t well marked. Nice views of the Elbow river.

Nice views of the city and mountains. A few steep spots otherwise a very easy walk through open fields. Saw deers and chipmunks. Check the wind before you go, it was really gusty out there.

Awesome day! May 29/2020... this time we went the hikers route!! So much easier than technical route! Just went past Ravens end up to second blue marker as we summited other route last time.. Started late in day so will return to go to chains.

Good trail! Lots of shade, and there were spots that you could stop for a nice view. Few muddy spots but nothing insane.

Great trail, not too many views until you’re near the top, just a river and a lot of snow still. Last km or so I had to go through over waist deep snow (I’m 6’3) but the views at the top were worth it.

beautiful hike, gets better as you get further on. Easier side to moderate... good for dogs and younger kids as well little bit of snow and mud at the moment but we did it in our hiking boots just fine.

First trail of the season! definitely a steep one, but it's switch back all the way up, and with 3 nice breaks the whole thing took around 2 and a half hours up and down! you'll pass the bridge and keep walking along the trail and you'll see a pretty obvious little path heading straight up. right next to that entrance, on the left of the main trail is a cute little waterfall. check the photos for reference of both!

Great hike. It was flooded about 6 kms in but if you have boots you’ll be fine. Will definitely be doing this one again.

Still too much snow to make it to the top. Ice gear recommended but waist deep snow at the top as well as difficulty following and finding the trail with current conditions did not allow us to make it to the ridge. There are no markers on the trail and there is no reception in the area to confirm if you are on the trail.

My dog and I did this hike this morning and we didn't see anyone until the end. We took about 2 hours and got lost a bit when the trail disappeared and we had to bushwack for a bit. We also had to cross the river twice (one over a tree that fell over the river and the other I had to take my socks and shoes off and go through up to me butt). I think the trail is meant mostly for horse rides but overall I really enjoyed the hike - incredibly peaceful.

Had no idea this hike was closed There was a stunning view at the top off the cliff face but very hard to stay on trail for majority of the hike past the top of West Wind Pass. Snow is difficult to get through the further up the mountain you go so I would recommend snowshoes if you decide to do it.
