STEEP.. but totally worth the grind! Sketchy scramble at the top but I'd do it again!

Spectacular view of lake at 4km. Easy 1.3 km walk south out of parking lot, to just past the creek/waterfall running into Upper Kananaskis Lake. The 2.7 km quite uphill but manageable trail for us 60-year olds for a gorgeous view of the lake surrounded by snowy and rocky peaks. Somewhat muddy at the top and a little snow (June 21 2017), but no issues if you have hiking boots and the college students among us did fine in various athletic footware.

Fun hike looking for all the troll dolls! We couldn't find them all! Easy trail with nice falls at the end! A nice stroll in the woods :)

Very nice hike, LOTS of people, very popular spot! Been on this hike twice, about 1-2 return.

Great fast hike - takes approximately 3-4 hours to complete round trip. It is steep the whole way, and very windy at the top but the views are worth it.

Nice loop, not too steep, but no views to speak of. This would be a fantastic trail run.

Short hike, Miner's Peak directly across, one hike with the beautiful views of 2 peaks.

A friend and I and our children (5,3, and 1) only went as far as the lake. Good trek in! Will be doing again and one day make it all the way to tombstone!

Steady hike up to the first peak, and a bit of a scramble up to the second peak. My husband carries our one year old son on his back with poles, and it proved a good workout. We descended down the backside and completes the jewell pass. Just when you think you are unsure whether you took the right trail keep going! You will hit a small clearing and turn left to continue on to the river, waterfall and back to the water. The pass is underwhelming to be honest, but proves to be a good second half workout. Views from the top of Prairie are beautiful!

Excellent half day hike. Took us 1.75hrs up (with two novice hikers), spent 1-2 hours at the ridge and summit, and then ran down in 30ish mins. Pretty busy, quite Windy on 17/6/17.

Great trail up, nice spot at top for view
