Easy trail with amazing views

An easy steady grade ascends through piney woods to views of the Columbia glacier. Sit on the iconic red Adirondack chairs and watch the Icefields trucks drive out onto the glacier and deposit little ant tourists. Keep going higher, above treeline, and feel like you're in the Alps with peaks all around and sweeping 360 degree views. Look for chunks of rock with ammonite fossils near the trail. Wear waterproof footwear, the trail can be muddy if there's been recent rain or snowfall (there was a light dusting of snow when we started out).

This trail offered stunning views during the entire hike, from trailhead to summit. The trail was completely snowed under in late October, but there were enough markers and trail railings after treeline to keep you on track. An absolute must, and the drive to the trail was gorgeous.

Can't say enough great things about this trail. Power through the switchbacks for one of the most rewarding short hikes along the Parkway. And each time you rest, the view gets better and better. Be prepared for lots of wind!

Beautiful hike with views of the glacier. The path to the top which is about 200ft further up offers better views of the valley and glacier.

Wow- what a spectacular view at the top. Wish we'd had more time to spend on the ridge.

Nice hike. Busy until you get past the red chairs. Were able to see some mountain goats.

This trail is amazing. It has incredible views, wildlife, wild flowers (when the season is right) and glaciers! Once you get to the top, it would be in your best interest to explore the ridge. You might find a HUGE glacier. Count on spending extra time and mileage to get the most out of this hike. Definitely one of our favorites!

Hike up on July16th to the red chairs. But, too crowded and was unpredictable weather hit the rainhail storms along the way. Hike up a little bit early.

Wildflowers are out. Minimal snow up to Wilcox Ridge. Amazing views with a gradual effort up to the pass and ridge.

Loved it, easily assessable, good short hike, great views, would definitely recommend!
