Incredible Hike, but definitely more strenuous than we ever could have imagined! It is 6 km up and 6 km down....and when we say up we mean straight up!! We went last week and there was still quite a bit of snow present. We definitely wouldn't have known which way to go if it hadn't been for a group ahead of us that made tracks in the snow. Definitely require good footwear. Incredible views!

A little mucky at this time of year, nice views of the valley from the top

Lots of snow but a great hike! Stay on the well groomed narrow trail for a good hike. Excellent views at the top around Rawson lake

Nice family trail. We found Henry!(Troll)

We hiked from the Barrier Lake parking lot up to the lookout and back down without doing the loop in 3.5hrs. The trail is extremely icy for the last 1km so I highly recommend cleats and hiking poles. There is a second lookout you can climb to but due to wind and the amount of ice was not accessible for us. Overall this is a great hike and I highly recommend for a quick short day trip. It gives you incredible views at the top that do not disappoint! I would rate it on the easy side of moderate and would say it's one of my favourites for sure!

Nice and close to the city, lots of ups and downs. A pretty decent view from the top. We went on a Saturday in April and we only saw 3 other groups of people on the whole trail, that part was nice as our dog likes to be off leash.

This is listed in my trail book as moderate. I feel it was hard. I wanted to die on this hill (haha), it's STEEP! Poles help make me not hate life so much.
The view is unbeatable; And of course, it gives you that feeling of accomplishment... and you feel no guilt about the Canmore pizza that you go for afterwards. Bonus!

Did this hike today. Gorgeous weather.
Slippery in spots!
